Muhlenberg College, Allentown, Pa. 



College chartered 
by Phi Beta Kappa 

Muhlenberg College has been granted permission to estab- 
lish a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. The announcement came as 
a result of the decision made by the Phi Beta Kappa National 
Council held at Duke University August 27-29. 

The 184 chapters of Phi Beta Kappa So ciety compose an 
organization which supplies 



"national criterion for the recog- 
nition of students of scholarly 
promise and attainment." Found- 
ed in 1776 at the College of Wil- 
liam and Mary in Virginia, the 
Society has grown to its current 
size over a period of 200 years. 

Application was made by the 
Phi Beta Kappa Club of Muhlen- 
berg, a faculty group of ten PBK 
members, with the assistance of 
the officers of the college.' The 
process of application is a three- 
year procedure. 

Initially, a preliminary report 
was filed with the Committee on 
Qualifications in Washington, D.C. 
It was primarily a statistical an- 
alysis of the faculty, students, 
financial situation, and facilities 
of the college. 

The college was one of 60 



Motown lops' spin 
for first Big Name 

The Muhlenberg College Stu- 
dent Council presents the Four 
Tops in Concert, 8 p.m. Saturday, 
October 7. Pete Nagle, chairman 
of the Big Name Committee, ex- 
pects a large turnout for one of 
the hottest groups of the past 
three years. 

Exhibiting the immensely popu- 
lar Motown Sound, the Tops have 
risen to stardom since their hits 
of 1965, "Baby, I Need Your Lov- 
in\" and "It's the Same Old Song," 
and the soulful "Reach Out." 

Other famous hits include "I 
Can't Help Myself" and "Seven 
Rooms of Gloom."

schools asked to submit a more 
formal application. The report, 
written by a committee chaired 
by Dr. Harold L. Stenger Jr., head 
of the English department, cover- 
ed a wide range of subjects con- 
cerning the college, including stu- 
dents, athletics, academic achieve- 
ment, and church affiliation and 
support. From the 60 schools, 13 
were chosen for an on-site inspec- 
tion. 

Final recommendation was made 
to the Council in August and Muh-

LeRoi Jones stuns 
'Black power will 



by Don Peck 

LeRoi Jones appeared before 
Muhlenberg College in the echo- 
ing "cave" called Memorial Hall 
at last Friday's assembly. A dra- 
matist of distinction (Dutchman, 
The Toilet and The Slave) and a 
social critic of note (Home), Jones 
is, in his own eyes, first and fore- 
most a Negro. In the White Man's 
eyes, he is a dangerous Negro — 
a militant, trouble-stirring-upper 
Negro, from whose lips the phrase 
"black power" is never long ab- 
sent. 

Jones read to the crowd an essay 
intended for publication in the 
Atlantic Monthly. Jones enter- 
tained some realistic doubts about 
its actually being published in that 



Secor ideas invigorating: 
plans intellectual concord 



by Donna Schultx 

If first impressions can be con- 
sidered reliable, new Dean of the 
College Dr. Philip B. Secor appears 
to be just the proverbial breath of 
fresh air needed to revive this 
campus which for dangerously loo 
long a time has inhaled and ex- 
haled an atmosphere polluted with 
close-minded conservatism and 
isolationism, and an overconcern 
for minutiae. Secor's youthful 
confidence, which might be easily 
mistaken for pompous arrogance, is 
a refreshing change from the 
apathy and slough which threaten 
this stalwart German Lutheran 
institution. 

"We must open our senses to the 
instant, liberating ourselves from 
the guilt and errors of the past 
and the fears of the future . . . . 
I look at the present Muhlenberg 
and I see a good but not an excel- 
lent liberal arts college with the 
opportunity to become great. I 
hope to see Muhlenberg become

'Freshman extraordinaire.' 



an intellectual community." Thus 
the Dean spoke to a group of stu- 
dent leadors at the annual leader- 
ship conference, going on to ex- 
plain that the greatest need of an

periodical. "Extreme" is euphe- 
mistic when applied to both the 
essay and to Jones' position in the 
civil rights dilemma as a whole. 

The essay concerned Newark, 
civic corruption, the riot, Negroes, 
cops, power, and, again, "the 
beautiful black people." What 
Jones had to say about Newark 
(he was born there), you won't 
lind in Time magazine. 

According to Jones, the Mafia 
holds absolute control over the city 
of Newark, and it exercises its 
power with "iron feet." The 
Newark Negroes, who constitute at 
least 55 percent of the population, 
have not prospered under the civic 
leadership of Mayor Addonizio. 
For example, until the first tre- 
mors of the riot, there was not 
even a single Negro policeman 
above the rank of lieutenant on 
the Newark force — a force of 
1,400 men, only 250 of whom are 
Negro. 

When it looked as if some sort 
of disturbance was imminent 
among the black ranks, an ap- 
pointment was hastily made, but, 
strange to say, this singular step 
towards racial equality did not put 
to rest the resentment growing 
among the Negroes. This appoint- 
ment was just another example of 
what Jones calls "tokenism" — 
white man's gift of politically im- 
potent positions to individual 
Negroes "Mr. Black — FIRST 
NEGRO postmaster in Nowheres- 
ville, Kansas." 

These token appointments, hul- 
labalooed as they are by the white 
presses, and hailed as "Great 
Strides Forward," effectively de- 
lude such groups as the white 
liberals into thinking that: yes, 
indeed, our colored brethren are 
(most gradually) approaching our 
own level of freedom and self- 
responsibility, while contrary to 
such (perhaps) well-meaning op- 
timism, the mass of colored breth- 
ren are still forced "to eat the 
same amount of shit they ever 
did." 




NEGRO PLAYWRIGHT Lerol 
Jones leaves Memorial HaU. 

Jones went on to describe the lot 
of the average Newark Negro — 
his living quarters in the filthiest 
sections of a city which has be- 
come almost synonymous with 
"filth." Describing the huge apart- 
ment buildings in Project City, 
each of which are nearly "small 
towns in themselves," he called 
these monstrosities "long red jails 
. . . tombs for the blacks." 

And the schools, with their 87 
per cent black enrollment, fare no 
better in Jones' estimation. How 
could they — with only three 
Negro members on the entire 
school board? Jones described the 
educational policy in such a sys- 
tem as one wherein the Negro 
children can ideally be "taught to 
hate themselves." 

Adding to this portrait of New- 
ark, Jones went on to discuss the 
proposed plan for building a medi- 
cal school on 150 acres (150 acres 
is quite a lot of land) where the 
black housing projects now stand. 
Jones feels that such a plan is in 
alignment with similar plans such 
as highway construction, again

Paige, see picture on pace 2. 

While serving as Affiliated Artist to Muhlenberg, Paige will be 
at the Lincoln Center In New York. 



Norman Paige, a leading tenor of 
the former Metropolitan Opera 
National Company, has been 
selected to be Muhlenberg's affili- 
ated artist for this year. Muhlen- 
berg is the first Institution of 
higher learning in Pennsylvania to 
participate in a new partnership 
between higher education and the 
performing arts, supervised by 
Affiliated Artists, a non profit 
corporation. 

Mr. Paige will spend eight weeks 
on the Muhlenberg campus this 
year to serve as a performer, in- 
terpreter of the arts and repre- 
sentative of the college in the 
community. He will be available 
for both college and community 
performances and will conduct 



studio demonstrations and confer 
informally with students and fac- 
ulty. 

Mr. Paige was born in Brooklyn 
and studied at New York Univer- 
sity and the Juilliard School of 
Music. In 1958 he was engaged as 
leading tenor at the Landes Thea- 
ter in Linz. 

Acclamation followed Paige's 
performance at the City Center 
earlier this year. The New York 
Times critics termed his Don 
Basilio in "The Marriage of 
Figaro" unusually inventive. Of 
his Don Ramiro in Rossin's "Cin- 
derella" Alan Rich of The Herald 
Tribune said "Norman Paige, who 
sang the Prince, has the kind of 



light, lithe, and beautifully modu- 
lated tenor that hasn't been heard 
here since the best days of Cesare 
Vallenti. And The Saturday Re- 
view commented, "The best sing- 
ing came from Norman Paige as 
the Prince. His voice is light but 
artfully produced to float every 
syllable clearly, with the result 
that almost every word he sang 
could be understood." 

Paige is married to Inci Basav, 
a mezzo-soprano who was born in 
Turkey. One of her country's lead- 
ing women lawyers, she has been 
an assistant professor of adminis- 
trative law at the University of 
Istanbul. It is hoped that she wiU 
accompany her husband during 
one of his visits to Muhlenberg.

Dorms welcome new advisors; 
role of counselors expanded 



Have a problem? Need a 
friend? The Muhlenberg com- 
munity this year has three new 
counselors to whom you may turn. 
Miss Nancy E. Harvey is the resi- 
dent counselor in Prosser Hall. 
She received her bachelor's degree 
in education from Miami Univer- 
sity, Oxford, Ohio; her master's 
degree in counseling from Indiana 
University; and is currently work- 
ing on her doctorate. At Indiana 
she was assistant head counselor 
in a highrise residence hall of 600 
girls. She had four counselors 
under her and she rotated admin- 
istrative and advisory duties every 
eight weeks. She also worked in 
the University Counseling Center 
doing vocational, educational, and 
personal guidance. She loves to 
travel and enjoys reading, partic- 
ularly in the area of existentialist

thought. Miss Harvey sees her role 
as an advisor to the girls and as 
a liaison between the students and 
the administration. She said that 
she was "very impressed by the 
enthusiasm, interest, and aware- 
ness of the students at the Lead-

goal of a college should be to edu- 
cate and not to instruct. Muhlen- 
berg can do this. There is a wide 
range of experiences here if stu- 
dents don't get bogged down with 
trivia." 

Martin Luther Hall's new resi- 
dent counselor is Robert Larry 
Kappauf. A graduate of Lake For- 
est College, 111., Kappauf received 
his master's degree in student per- 
sonnel from Indiana University. 
He has spent the past two years at 
Wisconsin State College at Osh- 
kosh, working in the admissions 
office and in residence halls. Dur- 
ing the summer Kappauf is the 
director of a camp in New York 
state. He is very pleased with 
Muhlenberg and is looking for- 
ward to an active and enjoyable 
year. Besides his duties as resi- 
dent counselor, he will be serving 
in an advisory capacity to IFC, 
Men's Dormitory Council, and 
possibly other groups.

Convocation begins term; 
McGrath offers message 




Dr. Earl J. McGrath called for 
four "new vistas" in liberal edu- 
cation yesterday at Muhlenberg's 
120th Academic Convocation. Mc- 
Grath's proposals may have some 
immediate significance here since 
he has been connected with Muh- 
lenberg and its administrative 
policies in past 1 years. 

McGrath, who was awarded an 
honorary LL.D in 1953 by Muh- 
lenberg, proposed: 

1 ) The students should be restored 
to the center of the educational 
process. The college must ex- 
ist for the students first and 
foremost. 

2) The admission policy should be 
such that a heterogeneous 
freshman class in academics 
and interests is admitted each 
year. McGrath emphasized that 
high school grades and SAT 
scores do not always indicate 
the creative minds. 

3) Liberal education should in- 
volve a closer connection be- 
tween the campus and outside 
world by making courses more 
relevant. The college should be 
less protective of its students. 

4) The- students should have the 
right to participate in groups 
which decide what is taught 
and how it is taught. The stu- 
dent must have the freedom to 
learn. 

As part of the "new vistas" pro- 
posal for liberal education, Mc- 
Grath suggested a revolt "among 
sober and balanced students" to 
make the liberal arts colleges a 
place where problems of human 
existence can be better dealt with. 

The only proposal which seems 
to have great pertinence at Muh- 
lenberg is Point Three which sug- 
gests courses more relevant to the 
outside world. The College's new- 



Dean seeks communication 



!•<••> I 
intellectual community is a funda- 
mental agreement among scholars 
about the meaning of words, a 
community of utmost understand- 
ing through clear communication. 

Says Secor, the students, as well 
as the rest of the College person- 
nel, must be able to discriminate 
between important and less im- 
portant and less important and so 
on. Here is one area where the 
Dean feels that the Muhlenberg 
student has had little success. To 
illustrate: the junior key pro- 
posal The Dean advises that once 
an issue is wom out. one must 
look to another area of concern 
instead of wasting valuable time 
prodding the dead. "One must 
have the capacity to take his own 
act and community with less than 
ultimate seriousness." 

Anti-fraternity 

By now many of the students 
have heard rumors that the new 
Dean is anti-fraternity, even going 
so far as to have openly worked 
against fraternities on other cam- 
puses. In the Dean's own words, 
"In me you will not find a friend 
to fraternities." This is in keeping 
with his plan to build this, and 
every other, college into an intel- 
lctual community. Secor chal- 
lenges, "I can't think of ways fra- 
ternities can make contributions to 
the community. They continue to 
stress exclusiveness . . ." and are 
thus an obstacle to the necessary 
communication needed in the in- 
tellectual community. Much to the 
relief of many, Secor added that 
at Muhlenberg he has not been 
aware that fraternities are worth 
the fuss of taking action against 



them. 

Probably the most simple and 
yet most poignant remark made by 
the new Dean was "It's easy to 
talk big — another thing to de- 
liver." Dean Philip Secor does 
talk big and it is inspiring to hear. 
But his advice is well taken. We 
are ready for action. 



ly initiated Visiting Professor pro- 
gram and Artist in Residence pro- 
gram seem to be advances in this 
direction. 

McGrath also urged that the 
United States should re-evaluate 
the space program, Vietnam situ- 
ation and riot problem. He ob- 
served that liberally educated per- 
sons are better equipped to make 
the value judgments needed to 
make these decisions. Technical 
knowledge not give the "stability, 
meaning and satisfaction" that is 
needed • solve world problems. 
Only liberal education can fill the 
void. 

Dr. McGrath was U. S. Commis- 
sioner of Education from 1949 to 
1953 and Is the author of the book 
Education — The Wellsprirut of 
Democracy. Presently he is the 
director of the Institute of Higher 
Education, Teachers College, 
Columbia University, and Chan- 
cellor of Eisenhower College. 



Arcade invites 
creative arts 

Students interested in the crea- 
tive arts may submit entries to 
the Arcade, Muhlenberg's artistic 
magazine, for the first semester 
issue. The works should be sent 
to Box 212 or placed in the Arcade 
office, room 16 of the Union by 
November 13. 

Entries may include original 
poetry, short stories, essays, plays, 
sketches, wood cuts, photographs, 
musical compositions, or any other 
creative work. 

Gene Ginsberg, editor of the Ar- 
cade, said, "The purpose of the 
magazine is to allow any student 
or faculty member to develop his 
creative talents and to share these 
talents with the 'Muhlenberg fam- 
ily'." 

At weekly meetings held Mon- 
days at 10 a.m. in the Arcade office 
the staff reads, discusses, and 
chooses the entries for publication. 
Anyone interested in the sym- 
posium may attend. The first issue 
of the Arcade will be published 
before Christmas.

Centennial celebration 
tenters on History 



There will be no dancing in the 
streets as Muhlenberg celebrates 
the centennial of its naming this 
year. However, a number of pro- 
grams associated with the Centen- 
nial Celebration will commemorate 
the end of the first one hundred 
years of Muhlenberg's existence 
under the college's present name. 

Many of the events scheduled 
for this semester will be in con- 
nection with the publication of Dr. 
James E. Swain's history of the 
college, A History of Muhlenberg 
College 1848-1967. (From 1848 to 
1867 the college was known as 
AUentown Theological Seminary.) 
On October 20, the Allentown 
Alumni Club will give a testi- 
monial dinner for Professor Emer- 
itus Dr. Swain. 

The Board of Associates will 
give a celebration dinner to honor 
the publication of Dr. Swain's 
book on November 15 in the 
Garden Room. The principal 
speaker for the event will be Max 
Frankel, White House correspon- 
dent of the New York Times. 
Frankel was previously at Muh- 
lenberg in the spring of 1966 as 
the moderator of a foreign affairs 
debate between Sen. Wayne Morse 
and Sen. John Stennis. Dr. Swain 
will be the honored guest of the 
dinner celebration. 

From October 7-28, the Student 
Art Committee will trace the his- 
tory of Muhlenberg College pic- 



forms for Danforth Graduate 
Fellowships and Fulbright 
Grants may be obtained in Dr. 
Dierolfs office. The deadline 
for Fulbright applications is 
October 1 and for Danforth Is 



torially with a photographic ex- 
hibit of the college's early years. 

However, for the Centennial 
Celebration it appears that more 
than anything, the book is the 
thing. 



Fetterhoff 
promoted 

Clair F. Fetterhoff, assistant to 
the treasurer at Muhlenberg Col- 
lege since 1965, has been named 
treasurer of the liberal arts college 
by the board of trustees. 

He will succeed Howard M. 
MacGregor who held the post for 
20 years. MacGregor, who re- 
linquished his position on the ad- 
vice of his physician, was named 
assistant treasurer by the board. 
He and Fetterhoff assumed their 
new assignments July 1. 

Fetterhoff, a 40-year-old Tower 
City, Pa., native, came to Muhlen- 
berg from the Philadelphia ac- 
counting firm of Tait, Weller and 
Baker. While there, he was in 
charge of Muhlenberg's audit for 
10 years. He also supervised the 
audits of the Lutheran Church in 
America's Eastern Pennsylvania 
Synod and Board of Publication, 
the Mary J. Drexel Home in Phil- 
adelphia and the Good Shepherd 
Home here. 

He served in the Naval Air 
Corps in World War II. After his 
discharge, he attended Bucknell 
University. He completed account- 
ing studies at the Columbia Insti- 
tute School of Accounting, Phila- 
delphia, in 1951 and acquired his 
CPA certificate in 1957. 



Council urges 'culture' 
explosion for College 



An enriched cultural program Is 
one of the major aims of this year's 
Student Council. This will be ac- 
complished through the organiza- 
tion of a coffee house on campus, 
an expanded Festival of the Arts, 

Junior class 
selects V.P. 

Members of the executive coun- 
cil of the Junior class are in the 
process of electing a new vice- 
president for the class. Ron Miller 
and Ron North were nominated 
for the office during Monday's ex- 
ecutive council meeting. 

The election was made neces- 
sary when Al McVay, class vice- 
president, transferred to another 
school. According to Article 1, 
Section 2 of the By-Laws of the 
class constitution, "In the event of 
a vacancy in the office of vice- 
president, secretary, or treasurer, 
their position shall be filled by 
members of the executive council, 
elected by the council members 
themselves." 

The election is under the super- 
vision of Student Council. Voting 
is by ballot among the members 
of the Class of '69 executive coun- 
cil. 

Other class business discussed 
during Monday's meeting included 
plans for Junior Prom, and results 
cf the booksale which handled 
about $1500 worth of books and 
resulted In a class profit of about 
$190. 



and an arts-film festival consisting 
of seven Friday night programs 
presented in conjunction with the 
Union Board. 

Four, rather than two, Big 
Names will also be held this year. 
The Four Tops will appear in con- 
cert October 7, with Dionne War- 
wick and Jackie Vernon scheduled 
for November 18. Performers for 
the two second semester programs 
have not yet been decided. 

Council hopes to extend library 
hours, gain student representation 
on faculty committees, and obtain 
key privileges for junior women. 

Community relations will be en- 
larged with work done this year 
in the Negro, as well as Puerto 
Rican, communities of Allentown. 

For the first lime, the course and 
teacher evaluations will be made 
public. Previously, the reports 
were issued only to the faculty. 

A student discount program in 
Allentown is tentatively being 
planned with Cedar Crest College, 
whereby college students would be 
granted reduced rates from local 
merchants. 

Gross stated that, as in past 
years, "Every student has a defi- 
nite responsibility and obligation 
in taking part in changing Muhlen- 
berg College. No stone will be left 
unturned until we feel we have 
done something worthwhile." 



Oriental life expert Fahs 
initiates professor program 

Muhlenberg has acquired Dr. Charles B. Fahs as its first Harry C. Trexler Visiting Pro- 
fessor. He returned to the United States this summer after a five-year tour of duty in 
Japan as director of the U. S. Information Service. More recently, Dr. Fahs served as 
minister for Cultural Affairs at the American embassy. 

His activities in Japan, which included advising the ambassador, representing the United 
States at public ceremonies, speak- 



ing to Japanese audiences, and 
promoting the cultural exchange 
between our two nations, were the 
culmination of over 30 years of 
interest in the Far East. 

Dr. Fahs majored in political 
science and international affairs at 
Northwestern University. As an 
undergraduate he was encouraged 
by his professors to specialize in 
Oriental studies. Moreover, 
through his maternal grandpar- 
ents, who were missionaries in 
China, he was brought into close 
contact with this area of the world. 
Dr. Fahs notes that his association 
with Oriental studies in various 
clubs and international organiza- 
tions at Northwestern was an ad- 
ditional impetus to his interest. 

A student in Japan during the 
1930's, Dr. Fahs returned to the 
United States during World War 
II to serve in Washington as an 
official with the Office of Strategic 
Services, and later as acting chief 
of the State Department's Division 
of Research for the Far East. He 
taught at Pomona College in 
Claremont, California, and was di- 
rector of humanities for the 
Rockefeller Foundation. 

This expert on Far Eastern af- 
fairs will employ his broad exper- 
ience in a seminar course entitled 
Contemporary Japanese Culture 
this semester. His classes will be- 
gin with an introduction to mod- 
ern Japanese history; later semi- 
nars will emphasize economics, 
politics, literature, arts, and phil- 
osophy. To supplement texts and 
library resources, Dr. Fahs hopes 
to Introduce current Japanese 
periodicals, which are translated 
as a service of the U. S. Embassy 
in Tokyo. In addition to the semi- 
nar course, Dr. Fahs will occa- 
sionally speak in other classes, as 
well as in the assembly this Fri- 
day at 10 a.m., in Memorial Hall.

A greater Muhlenberg . . . 

To quote new Dean of the College Secor, Muhlenberg is 
a "good but not excellent liberal arts college with the oppor- 
tunity to become great." Opportunity? Why that hardly 
describes the magnanimity of the chance this year offers to 
us. It is not enough that Phi Beta Kappa has recognized the 
merit of this good liberal arts college; that in itself might have 
been enough witness to the excellence of education provided 
here. But, no, much more opportunity still awaits, a myriad 
of opportunity in every area of education. 

Introducing Norman Paige: this young tenor is by no 
means a novice. As affiliated artist to Muhlenberg College, 
Paige will live in an apartment above the offices in the Alumni 
House for eight weeks. He will sing. He will interpret his 
singing. He will explain his technique of singing. He will 
lecture in class. He will be Muhlenberg's Leonard Bernstein. 
All free of charge to the Muhlenberg student. At the same 
time Paige will also be performing at the Lincoln Center in 
New York. Once in a lifetime many of us will have this 
opportunity to be affiliated with so great an artist. 

Introducing Charles Fahs: this Visiting Professor is an 
expert on the Far East. As the first Harry C. Trexler Visiting 
Professor, Dr. Fahs will conduct classes twice weekly on 
Tuesday and Wednesday nights. He will speak to us in next 
week's assembly. He will break down the walls of middle 
class American isolationism surrounding this campus. 

Introducing Philip Secor: this youthful Dean of the Col- 
lege is an intellect. He talks with the students. He urges 
courage and leadership. He plans an intellectual community. 
He even says "yes" to student ideas. 

Introducing LeRoi Jones: this militant black man hates 
us. He spits at us. He challenges us. Muhlenberg defends 
our right to hear him, his right to speak. 

No more trouble brewing over the Coffee House. It is 
here. It will break down the communication barrier. It will 
encourage student expression. It will stimulate student 
creativity. 

The library is new not only to freshmen. It has new rooms 
and new lights. It encourages study. It is a reason to have 
longer library hours. 

Foreign students smile out from strange faces with strange 
sounding names. They talk with students. They talk to 
students. They, too, break down the wall of isolationism, the 
barrier of communication. 

Here is opportunity for excellence, Muhlenberg. Oppor- 
tunity knocks but once. 



Was all the filth necessary 

LeRoi Jones' appearance at assembly last Friday was not 
a happy event. Anyone who has not had his head buried in 
the ground or turned in another direction this summer could 
have anticipated to some degree the harshness of Mr. Jones' 
remarks. However, the substance of his poetry could not have 
failed to strike the audience painfully regardless of one's posi- 
tion on Black Power. Like it or not, Black Power is what's 
happening, baby. 

The College should be proud that at Muhlenberg many 
views can be heard. Dr. Earl J. McGrath, yesterday's convo- 
cation speaker, called for "less protection" of the student as 
part of his "new vistas" for liberal education. 

Many vocal opponents of Mr. Jones' considered the reading 
of his poem "Newark Before Blackmen Conquered" offensive 
because of language used in the context of the poem. It is 
highly ironical that these "offensive" four letter words were 
without exception Anglo-Saxon. There was no mistaking 
exactly what he meant; everyone of Anglo-Saxon back- 
ground, and many of those who are not, understood the impli- 
cation of these words. If they had great impact, they were 
intended that way. Mr. Jones did not speak in an African 
dialect. He spoke to his audience.

Allentown, Pa., September 21, 1967 



From School 

The purpose of assemblies is not to couse needless arguments — surely we have enough 
already — but to present, for our benefit, a viewpoint different from that prevalent at our 
basically homgenious school. Despite the fact that we are there for our eight credits, it is, 
as can be, an educational experience. 

Any sort of current events background will tell you that LeRoi Jones would not de- 
scribe the subtle discrimination against upper class Negroes; no, Jones is one of the angry 
young men trying to represent the sub-class Negro. Jones is not a disinterested analyst 
coldly viewing the scene, not a suburbanite who ignores the problems of the city. His 
speech was emotional, it had to be, he was portraying anger, contempt and hatred. That's 
the way life is to him, tough, coarse and violent. 

I do not think he came here to convert Us to black militancy. He wants no part of our 
morality and knows that when it comes to the guts of a matter the Negro will stand alone, 
just as every other group stands alone in the end. But I listened trying to understand 
the feelings of men who have been chattel for years and are now exploding, literally 
exploding. 

Jones described Newark; the medical college pushing more Negroes into an already 
overcrowded slum. He described Newark, the mayor, of all the people, disregarding a 
qualified Negro for a governmental job. He described Newark, the ethnic separation, the 
mistrust, the betrayals. He described Newark; his people being shot by machine guns mount- 
ed on tanks. Can there be any doubt of his anger, his militancy. 

These were his emotions and apparently it angered some. But if you were a Negro and 
lived in Newark, wouldn't you be filled with violent emotions ready to follow a leader 
who offered a choice to get revenge on the oppression? Is Jones wrong? No, he just told 
it like it was. Is he right? No, he just told it like it was, to him. 



Letters To The Editor 



People power 

To the editor: 

Mr. Leroi Jones's cry of "black 
power" was very shallow. He was 
called a "social critic," but he 
failed to understand how the Sys- 
tem works. "Black power," as pro- 
claimed by Mr. Jones, is an empty 
dream, the product of minds mad- 
dened to righteous wrath, but a 
misdirected wrath. No one can 
deny that the black man has been 
wronged. The slaughter by the 
Newark police is a recent example 
of the brutality of "white power." 

But Mr. Jones failed to realize 
that not the white man but the 
white Establishment exploits the 
black man. In the same way, the 
established power — the System — 
exploit the poor white man. Mr. 
Jones shouldn't call for black pow- 
er — that is what the System 
wants. As long as black and white 
are divided, the System shall last. 
Indeed, the System itself started 
this division. 

A real social critic doesn't cry 
for "black power." nor for "white 
power," but for "people power." 
For the people must unite to vote 
the System out of power.

PAX for peace 

To the Editor: 

Last year a student group called 
PAX was organized on campus. 
The word pax is a Latin word 
meaning peace. Thus, PAX is 
primarily concerned with peace. 
But what is peace? In a negative 
sense, peace is the absence of war. 
Those associated with PAX are 
concerned about the war in Viet- 
nam and seek ways to end it. 
Some of us maintain a position of 
pacificism and oppose all wars; 
others of us oppose only certain 
wars which are considered wrong 
or unjust. Some of us base our 
position on Christian love; others 
work from a 'non-religious' hu- 
manism or other secular point of 
view. Nevertheless, we are united 
in our opposition to the Vietna- 
mese War. Once again our inter- 
pretations of the origin of the war 
may differ, as may our opinions of 
how best to disengage. There is no 
PAX party-line; PAX is a loose 
association of students who work 
together as interest and conscience 
allow. No one speaks for PAX; 
each one speaks for himself and 
commits himself only to what 
projects are of special Interest to 
him. No one is bound to support 



every project; each one chooses 
according to interest and consci- 
ence. 

But perhaps we have now dis- 
covered a positive content to 
peace. Peace among men requires 
mutual toleration, an unwillingness 
to resort to violence, to impose 
one's particular position on others, 
a commitment to approach prob- 
lems with an open mind, relying 
on persuasion to obtain whatever 
agreement is possible. 

Although PAX was organized in 
the latter part of last semester, it 
can point to a record of some ac- 
complishment: considerable con- 
troversy was created on campus, 
although some of it was unfor- 
tunately bitter; a debate/discus- 
sion was held on U. S. involve- 
ment in Vietnam; money was rais- 
ed to aid civilian victims of the 
war in Vietnam. This year we 
would like to continue to stimulate 
discussion about Vietnam and 
other areas where the peace of 
mankind is threatened. Lectures 
and debates could be planned in 
which both sides could be present- 
ed. More money ought to be rais- 
ed to help civilian vicUms of the 
war in Vietnam. There is much 
else that could be done; sugges- 
tions are welcome. 

If you would be interested- in 
joining with us in our efforts for 
peace, please contact me. 

Signed, 

Herb Lorentzen,

Council will consider the proposi-

GrOSS weight 

To the Editor: 

After careful, painstaking re- 
search it has been shown that first 
semester freshmen have usually 
received their lowest grades dur- 
ing this period of their lives. 

(This, of course, does not occur 
in all colleges — usually small, 
close-knit colleges with many tra- 
ditions; a college such as Muhlen- 
berg.) 

Seeking a cause for this, I have 
studied varied aspects of the fresh- 
man's life, and one of the most 
startling results was the fact that 
the fres"hman's poorest work Is 
done during the period when he 
is required to wear a Little gray 
and red hat. 

The conclusion then is obvious: 
the added weight upon a fresh- 
man's cranium is too great. 

Therefore, having the highest 
regard for the advancement of 
education, I propose that future 
freshmen be required to fill their 



Spirit of '71 

To the editor: 

Wednesday if you passed by the 
Union early enough you could 
have been one of the chosen few 
to view a rare phenomenon on 
our campus. The act in itself was 
nothing great but the meaning 
behind it should have been heart 
warming to those who really care 
about Muhlenberg College as a 
living institution not just a pile 
of bricks and mortar. 

The act to which I refer is that 
which was committed by some 
members of the freshman class. I 
mean some people actually got 
caught up in the spirit and true 
meaning of Freshman Orientation 
and took the time to make signs 
and stick them up on the outside 
columns and entrance way of 
the Union. Well this to me was 
really something. Kids doing more 
than they are told to do or doing 
something resulting from their 
emotions. 

People like Ray Whispell and 
Kenny Moyer should love this act- 
ion because maybe this will de- 
velop into a renewed spirit in 
the fans at our games and there- 
by help our (not their) team to 
success. 

This spirit once released doesn't 
have to stop there. By some 
chance the spirit could leak into 
the classroom and students would 
question and take an active inter- 
est in their studies. 

Funny but this can't really hap- 
pen at Muhlenberg; anyway not 
until some things are changed. 
Why? Well I began by saying that 
you had to be up early to see the 
signs on the Union — the reason 
being that they were removed not 
by the janitors but by the direc- 
tor himself, in a manner most de- 
fiant showing contempt for any 
such outlandish display of feeling.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Pasolini's 'Gospel' 
vibrant, immediate 



by Kathryn licit/. 

"The Gospel According to St. 
Matthew," the powerful film pro- 
duced and directed by the Italian 
communist writer - poet - director, 
Pier Paolo Pasolini, was shown 
this past Sunday evening by the 
Muhlenberg Christian Association. 
It was the opener for MCA's fall 
program schedule. 

The most immediate and most 
acute reaction to the film is a 
sense of "being right there," of 
being allowed to glimpse the sim- 
plicity and the stark reality of the 
life of Jesus of Nazareth two thou- 
sand years ago. The film lacks 
the usual glosslng-over with senti- 
mental ideals and romantic per- 
sonalities, and presents only the 
straightforward history as it is 
written. No words are spoken 
other than those from the actual 
Matthew text. 

On-the-spot reality 

"Pasolini's use of rugged Sicilian 
landscapes, hill towns, costumes of 
coarse, unfinished material and 
peasant faces without make-up 
reflects a poetic and penetrating 
vision of the Holy Land during 
the First Century where society 
was essentially pre-agrarian." 
Bands of laughing, carefree, shab- 
bily-clad children playing around 
crude, baked-mud houses, herds of 
goats blocking narrow city streets, 
fishermen, and merchants going 
about their everyday tasks, all add 
to the mood of immediacy and 
reality. 

In this setting arises the Christ. 
He becomes part of the very real 
human drama of His society, and 
at the same time portrays a vision 
of a newness, a richness of life 



Club teaches 
universal lingo 

by Elizabeth Alexander 

Somewhere or other you've 
probably heard the word. In case 
you didn't know, it means "hop- 
ing." Esperanto is an international 
verbal communication system (I 
don't wish to start a feud by call- 
ing it a language) designed for 
easily written and spoken uni- 
versal understanding. Contrary to 
popular opinion, Esperanto is used 
in many places in the world. 

Esperanto is very quickly learn- 
ed by anyone who has any Teu- 
tonic or Romance language back- 
ground. For instance, la lnteli- 
genta persono komprenas facile la 
Espcrantan lingvon. 

Ground rules 

On Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 
27, from 4 to 4:30, Dr. Rodney Ring 
will introduce Esperanto and ex- 
plain some of its ground rules. 
This meeting is not an organiza- 
tional one. We wish only to pre- 
sent our subject. 

What other lingo has only 16 
rules with absolutely no excep- 
tions? 

Venu, al la Esperanta kunveno. 

Come to the Esperanto meeting.

This fall a series of informal 
presentations on international

In the eyes of Jesus are reflect-

is overdone. Pasoloni's Christ is

Court to revitalize code; 
proposes new procedures 

by Margaret Gatter 

Although constant re-evaluation and reform are necessary in every aspect of campus 
life, they are especially vital to the Student Court. A static judicial system would be a 
travesty of the ideal of justice. Consequently, those who are concerned with the Muhlen- 
berg Student Court system are at present working with several ideas for improvement. 

The change which will affect the studentbody most directly is_the development of a 
new social code. This code at-" 



tempts to clarify the old "com- 
port" clause and provide a fairer 
basis for judgment by elaborating 
specific social offenses. It has been 
passed by Student Council, and 
now awaits final approval by a 
faculty committee. 

Further suggestions have been 
made for improvement of the sys- 
tem, and the following ideas are 
proposals for action in the near 



future. 

One area of concern is the ap- 
pointment of new justices and In- 
vestigators. In order to bring 
about a smoother transition from 
one year's court to the next, the 
new members will be chosen early 
in March. The new justices will 
attend any trials which occur be- 
fore their installation in early 
May. The new investigators will 



New faculty members join 'Family' 



President of the College, Dr. 
Erling Jensen, has announced the 
addition of 22 new members to 
the Muhlenberg faculty, including 
the new Dean of the College, 
Philip B. Secor, and visiting schol- 
ar Dr. Charles Burton Fans. (See 
related articles.) 

Five persons will supplement 
the foreign language department, 
and others will be added to the 
biology, chemistry, education, 
English, history, physical educa- 
tion, political science, and psy- 
chology departments. 

Far East expert 

Dr. Renville Lund, an authority 
on the Far East, will instruct both 
here and at Moravian College, 
spending three-quarters of his 
time at Muhlenberg. He received 
his B.A. from Hamline University 
and his M.A. from Stanford. Dr. 
Lund obtained his doctoral degree 
at the University of Washington. 

A former professor at Queens 
College in North Carolina, the Far 
East expert also taught at the 
University of Taiwan under a Ful- 
bright Scholarship. 

Derk Visser, a second addition 
to the history department, is an 
assistant professor and will teach 
History of Civilization. Alton 
Slane, who previously taught at 
St. Anthony's High Shcool in 
Trenton, New Jersey, will be an 
instructor in the political science 
department. 

Foreign languages 

Priscilla Rieger will serve as an 
assistant professor in the French 
department at Muhlenberg. She 
expects to receive her Ph.D. from 
Yale University in 1968, and is a 
member of Phi Beta Kappa. 

Pascal Wirz, who will also sup- 
plement the French department 
faculty, is in his fourth and diplo- 



ma year for the license of Hautes 
Etudes Commerciales. 

Heinrich Kelz, who will serve as 
a foreign language instructor, ex- 
pects to receive his Ph.D. from the 
University of Bonn in 1968. He 
has taught previously at Palmer- 
ton High School. 

Paulette Roy, an assistant pro- 
fessor, and Anna Schneider, a 
German instructor, will also teach 
in the foreign language depart- 
ment. 



Three men have been added to 
the physical education department. 
Frank Marino, who received his 
B.S. from State Teachers College 
at Brockport, New York, and his 
master's from Perm State, comes 
to Muhlenberg from Morris Knolls 
High School in Rockaway, New 
Jersey. There he coached three 
championship football teams. At 
Muhlenberg he will serve as an 
assistant professor of physical ed- 
ucation and also as offensive back- 
fleld coach for the Mules. 

A 1967 graduate of Muhlenberg, 
John Piper will be an instructor 
in physical education, as well as 
football defensive line coach and 
wrestling coach. 

Ronald Lauchnor, who graduat- 
ed from Kutztown State College, 



fessor, and Mrs. Steven Seyer will 
serve as biology instructors. 

Formerly of the Lehigh Univer- 
sity staff, Ralph Van Arnum, a 
member of the physics depart- 
ment, will offer the astronomy 
course. 

English instructors 

Jay H. Hartman, Donald L. 
Moore, and Bruce M. Snyder are 
the new additions to the English 
department. Hartman, who pre- 
viously taught at Susquehanna 
University, will teach 18th Cen- 
tury Literature at Muhlenberg. 

A graduate of Wheaton College 
in Illinois (B.A.) and the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania (M.A.) Moore 
is a doctoral candidate at New 
York University. He was formerly 
a teaching assistant at Rutgers, the 
State University, New Jersey.

earned his Master's at NYU, will 
teach Creative Writing at Muh- 
lenberg. 

Iaoona. McEwan 

An assistant professor of edu- 
cation, Angelo Iacono received his 
B.S. from East Stroudsburg and 
his M.S. from Lehigh. Before 
coming to Muhlenberg, he served 
as graduate assistant of intern 
teachers at Lehigh. 

Douglas McEwan, the new 



previously taught biology in the member of the psychology depart- 
ment graduated from Western

will be one year, with the possi- 
bility of re-election. The chief in- 
vestigator, selected by the presi- 
dent of the court, will continue in 
his office until gradutaion. 

Finally, a committee of justices 
will be forced to continue the in- 
terest in reform. It will meet to 
discuss possible improvements and 
will be present at the meetings of 
any group discussing matters re- 
lated to the court system.

Philly Chamber Orchestra 
to open tour at Lehigh 



The Chamber Symphony Or-

by Anshel Brusilow, will perform 
at Lehigh University Saturday, 
September 30, opening the 38th 
season of the University's Com- 
mittee on Performing Arts. 

This performance by the highly 
acclaimed orchestra, will be the 
first stop of a major, national tour 
of 110 concerts. It begins at 8:15 
p.m. in Grace Hall on the Lehigh 
campus and is open to the public. 

The Orchestra performed to a 
capacity audience at Muhlenberg 
last spring, and will play a return 
engagement in Memorial Hall No- 
vember 1. 

Founded as well as conducted 
by Brusilow, the Philadelphia en- 



semble is not yet quite a year old 
but has already earned praise from 
some of the nation's most discern- 
ing music critics. Following its 
world premiere performance in 
October 1966 at the Academy of 
Music in Philadelphia, the Cham- 
ber Symphony played to live audi- 
ences totaling more than a quarter

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Thursdiy, Somber 21, 1967 



Sheer praises frosh 
for spirit, patience 

"I would like to congratulate the freshmen on what, I 
feel, is excellent participation and cooperation on their part 
in making the orientation process very smooth and complete." 

Expressed by Alain Sheer, chairman of the freshman 
orientation program at Muhlenberg College, this statement 
concurred with the attitudes of 
the freshmen themselves toward 
the orientation September 5-9. 

All of the freshmen polled view- 
ed the orientation as "very help- 
ful" because it acquainted them 
with Muhlenberg and made them 
feel like a real part of the college 
without the pressures of classes. 
Especially impressive to freshmen 
were the friendliness of upper- 
classmen and faculty advisers and 
their willingness to orient fresh- 
men to college life. 

Specific events of the program 
enjoyed by freshmen included the 
campus tour and the activities 
meeting. However, some suggest- 
ed that the essay portion of the 
orientation test was unfair and 
that student advisers should have 
better prepared freshmen for the 
test. One student mentioned that 
she did not fully enjoy orientation 
week because she was studying 
instead of meeting fellow fresh-

The Class of '71 completely dominated the Class of 70 at the Soph-Frosh Riot held 
Wednesday night, September 13. It was a black night for the sophomores as the annual 
fracas began at approximately 8. 

For two nights preceding the riot, a public address system was used to harass the 
sophomores. Along with signs to boost freshmen morale, hymns of freshmen superior- 
ity, accompanied by organ music, 



Yet, reflecting on orientation in 
its entirety, the chairman and 
freshman participants found the

an ". . . exceptional degree of en-

Mortimer text 
widely used 

Sixty-four colleges and univer- 
sities in the United States and 
Canada are using a recently-pub- 
lished chemistry textbook written 
by a Muhlenberg College profes- 
sor. 

An additional 13 institutions 
are making arrangements to use 
"Chemistry: A Conceptual Ap- 
proach" by Dr. Charles E. Morti- 
mer, professor of chemistry, in 
their courses. 

The work is designed "to meet 
the realistic needs of today's stu- 
dents . . . who need a practical, 
modern work covering chemical 
concepts and descriptive chemis- 
try," says Reinhold Book Division, 
the publisher. 

An Allentown native. Dr. Morti- 
mer was graduated from Muhlen- 
berg and received his Ph.D. from 
Purdue University. He returned 
to his alma mater to teach in 1950. 

Dr. Mortimer's wife, Dr. Joanne 
S. Mortimer, is an associate pro- 
fessor of history at Muhlenberg.

Letters To The Editor 

some of the finest minds in the I has the passion; indeed, she even 



Supply the boards 

To the Editor: 

I am most pleased to see that 
Muhlenberg College has not com- 
pletely forgotten its obligation to 
the dramatic arts. For, in the May 
1967 issue of The General, men- 
tion was made of the dire need for 
a fine arts center, the hub of which 
must be a theater. Unfortunately 
it is only a mention. Construction 
should have begun years ago. 

As I have said, the hub of the 
fine arts installation should be a 
theater — not an auditorium with 
a glorified lecture platform. Many 
great colleges and universities 
have recently built such theaters 
and Muhlenberg must not be left 
behind. For, in my years at Berg, 
I saw and participated in drama 
which is unexcelled by many uni- 
versities whose physical resources, 
finances and people, far exceed 
those of Muhlenberg. But there is 
another great resource which 
Muhlenberg has: its spirit. Despite 
alleged student apathy this spirit 
and its capacity for accomplish- 
ment have never really flagged. 

To get back to the main point, 
Muhlenberg should have a theater 
which is truly a theater, a fine arts 
center which can be a true asset 
to the college as a whole. Men- 
tion had been made of a national, 
or even international, competition 
among architects for the design of 
the building. Certainly this idea 
has its validity. The structure 
which would result from such a 
competition would unquestionably 
be an asset to the campus, as well 
as exerting a drawing force on

country. It could stand on its own 
as a work of art. 

Yes, this would indeed produce 
a magnificent structure. But 
would it be a magnificent theater? 
The unfortunate fact exists that 
most architects know compara- 
tively little about building theaters 
from the footlights back. If this 
building is ever to be built, if it 
is ever to be more than a dream, 
then now is the time for action. A 
professional theater consultant 
should be called in, now before the 
architect begins his plans, before 
a final site is chosen. For the prob- 
lem of designing a theater build- 
ing is complex ; what is done back- 
stage can, and usually does, affect 
the entire structure. 

Muhlenberg will eventually 
have to decide the extent to which 
she wants to go; will drama, mu- 
sic and art become major depart- 
ments, or will they remain as 
ostensibly one-man departments 
offering a few elective courses? 
Before this decision is made, a 
theater consultant should be called 
in. For the question, and others 
which are related to it, can not 
be answered until the physical 
possibilities are fully explored. 

Robert Edmund Jones, one of 
the most outstanding proponents of 
the New Stagecraft in America, 
once said that all the theater 
really needs is two boards, two 
actors, and a passion. Muhlenberg 



has the actors, though they be 
submerged for lack of an outlet. 
Supply the boards. For the future 
of the American theater as a whole 
depends to a great extent, greater 
than most people imagine, on the 
theatrical efforts of such schools of 
Muhlenberg. Eventually there will 
be a broad-based repertory system 
in the United States. The roots of 
this system have already begun to 
grow. Muhlenberg, if she has the 
foresight and the inclination, can 
play a key role in this development 
system the theater will lag along 
the East Coast. Without this in 
its present state; it will not die, 
for it Is as immortal as the human 
race. With a broad-based reper- 
tory system, playwrights, actors, 
indeed all of the theatrical artists, 
will find a home in which to learn 
and perfect their art. 

Shakespeare's form was given to 
him. Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euri- 
pedes and Aristophanes flourished 
in an established theater. Moli- 
ere's art grew from established 
folk theater. We must now fer- 
tilize out fields so that the seeds 
of genius will not fall on fallow 
ground. Supply the boards.

sung to the sophomores. 
The pre-riot festivities, including 
nightly attacks by egg-throwing 
freshmen, received very little re- 
taliation from the sophomores. 
The highlight of the pre-riot ag- 
gravation was the placing of a 
dink on General Pete's head, fol- 
lowed by three cheers for the 
general himself. 

The brawl took place in the 
quadrangle between Martin Luth- 
er Hall and East Hall. The throw- 
ing of eggs, water balloons, rotten 
tomatoes, and other foul materials, 
heralded the riot which was then 
culminated by the removal of var- 
ious articles of clothing. 

A member of the junior class, 
when asked his opinion of the up- 
roar, replied that the freshmen 
dominated the sophomores two- 
thirds of the time, the sophomores 
making only one of two advances 
over the dividing line. But the 
determining factor was the Class 
of '71's backing the sophomores 
up to the sophomore dorm. At this 
point, the Soph-Frosh Riot was 
called to a halt and victorious 
cheers were raised by the fresh- 



Coffee pad' 
completed 

Muhlenberg's coffee house will 
"hopefully and undoubtedly" open 
within the next three weeks, ac- 
cording to student council member 
Rich Bennett. Located in the 
basement of the math and educa- 
tion building, the coffee house will 
be open nightly from the time 
night classes are let out until 1 1 : 30 
or 12 on week nights and until 
2 on weekends. 

The planned decor of the house 
suggests its intended mood of re- 
laxation and its purpose of pro- 
viding a nightly tension break for 
Muhlenberg students. The room 
is to be painted black with splashes 
of "mod" colors, and provided 
with black leather chairs and for- 
mica tables. Both coffee and coke 
will be served. 

Entertainment at the as-yet- 
nameless coffee house will be var- 
ied and current. It will include 
informal discussions, folk singers, 
poetry readings, and amateur and 
underground movies. 

After last year's unsatisfactory 
attempt at creating the psychede- 
lic, the renovated coffee house 
may provide a needed diversion 
from studying as well as an ex- 
cellent place to talk with fellow 
students.

Jones proposes Negro state

SOCIAL CRITIC FLEES — Students surrounding: LeRol Jones 
were disappointed last Friday as the controversial speaker quickly 
left the campus following his assembly talk. 



College gains foreigners; 
two flee native conflicts 



by Richard Gross 

Opposition to the Smith regime 
in Rhodesia and the war in the 
Middle East brought two members 
of a diverse group of students 
from abroad to Muhlenberg this 
year. 

Victor Saka came to Muhlenberg 
after his freshman year at the 
American University in Beiruit 
was interrupted by the short Mid- 
Eastern war in June. 

Saka attended high school, as 
well as his first year of college, 
in Lebanon, although he is a citi- 
zen of Jordan. He was studying 
for his final examinations in 
Lebanon last June when the war 
began. 

As he was attempting to travel 
back to Jordan on the first day of 
the war, Saka was stopped in Syria 
and drafted into the Syrian army. 
He served in the Syrian army for 
the duration of the war, but saw 
little of the actual fighting. 
New war 

Another war in the Mid-East is 
necessary in order for the Arabs 
to prove that they can win and 
that they are "worth something," 
Saka believes. He stated that he 
wouldn't mind serving in another 
war or even dying, if the Arabs 
were united and were working un- 
der a single leader. 

An engineering student, Saka 
came to the United States because 
he found it hard to study in the 
Mid-East where he was always 
"haunted by the fear of war." He 
learned of Muhlenberg through 
Dr. David Bremer, whom he met 
when Dr. Bremer was on his world 
trip last year. 

A pre-medical student from 
Norway, Thor Christiansen had 
originally applied to St. Olaf's 
College in Minnesota. Because St. 
Olaf did not have room to accept 
Christiansen, they forwarded his 
application to Muhlenberg. 

A thoroughly international stu- 
dent, Christiansen applied to uni- 
versities in several European 
countries, including Germany, Bri- 
tain, and Austria, as well as col- 
leges in the United States. 

Mario Scljas, a native of Vene- 
zuela, came to Muhlenberg un- 
decided upon a major but defi- 



nitely set on playing soccer. He 
is thinking of becoming a veteri- 
narian, however he is a little hesi- 
tant because of the prerequisite 
science courses. 

Before returning to Caracas, 
Venezuela, Seijas spent five years 
in New York while his father was 
studying at Columbia University. 
He first heard of Muhlenberg 
through Chilean friends of his 
parents, who are living in Allen- 
town. 

Rhodesian returns 

Returning for his second year 
at Muhlenberg is Sam Makhurane, 
who hails from Rhodesia. Last 
summer Makhurane alternated be- 
tween working at the Good Shep- 
herd Home and waiting at the 
Casa del Blu in Allentown. 

Makhurane originally came to 
the United States on a one-year 
travel grant for church workers 
from the Lutheran World Federa- 
tion. After accepting an offer to 
study at Muhlenberg, Makhurane 
received a letter from Rhodesia 
ordering him to return home. 
He refused, had his passport re- 
voked, and has since traveled un- 
der a British passport. Subse- 
quently, he has strongly opposed 
the Smith regime. 

Lucy Chen's father's experiences 
in France initiated her interest in 
French, in which she Is majoring 
at Muhlenberg. Miss Chen com- 
pleted high school at the Taipeii 
American School on her native 
Taiwan. She became interested in 
Muhlenberg through a friend at 
Swarthmore College. She is enter- 
ing her sophomore year and hopes 
to complete her college education 
in the United States. 



/'»» MP ' 
through concentrated Negro com- 
munities. 

If these projected manoeuvers 
are materialized as they stand, 
some 23,500 Negroes will be ren- 
dered homeless. Jones sees in 
steps such as these White Man's 
hope that the Negro, once "tem- 
porarily" uprooted, will re-locate 
himself in another area, preferably 
outside of Newark. He added, not 
exactly pointlessly, that in these 
construction plans, not a single 
Roman Catholic school is slated 
for extinction. 

Jones, speaking from his own 
personal vantage point as a Negro 
actually involved in the fighting, 
gave a vivid description of the riot 
— the cops, caught between the 
identical poles of fear and hate; 
the black ministers, carrying 
" 'Cool-It' signs, made up for them 
by God;" the looting, first of the 
liquor stores for scotch; the story 
of an event he witnessed from the 
jail window, concerning the shoot- 
ing by the cops of an automobile 
of Negroes — culminating in the 
unforgettable picture of one of the 
black women stumbling out of the 
car, clutching her bleeding breast, 
hit by a white cop's bullet; and, 
of course, James Rutledge, riddled 
with 39 bullets — a "constant image 
in the black man's mind." 

Jones has a sort of plan to end 
such strife as the riot. His plan 
hinges upon acceptance of separa- 
tism — a separatism which has al- 
ways been, and will always con- 
tinue to be; a separatism which be- 
gan with the differences existent

seems to be a last shout of con- 
tempt rather than a cry of the 
anguish of death. The final scenes 
of the movie — the resurrection 
and the ascension — are so hur- 
ried that no time is allowed for a 
sense of joy in the renewal of life. 

It is a movie in which faces say 
as much as spoken words, a movie 
well worth seeing. As Robert Sal- 
maggi of the New York Herald 
Tribune said of the film: "Pier 
Paolo Pasolini . . . without the 
proverbial cast of thousands, or 
an array of box-office stars, has 
dug down to the achingly simple 
core with only the St. Matthew 
text and made a lean, clean, honest

Trustees announce 
gifts to fund goal 

Muhlenberg College's trustees 
were informed that the college has 
received $304,000 in gifts and 
pledges toward its $600,000 an- 
nual fund goal. 

In March the 34-member gov- 
erning and policy-making body of 
the Allentown liberal arts col- 
lege approved an annual fund 
campaign to help "close the gap" 
between what Muhlenberg re- 
ceives in tuition and its $4.6-mil- 
lion operating budget. 

Frank Martin, a trustee who 
heads the board's plans and re- 
sources committee, is chairman of 
the annual fund. For the third 
successive year, Martin announced 
today that he would give the col- 
lege $25,000 this year. 

In his report, Martin told his 
colleagues that the $304,400 for the 
annual fund represents contribu- 
tions from alumni, foundations, 
parents, friends, the Lutheran 
church, and corporations. 

He said to date alumni have 
given $630,300; foundations, $48,- 
600; parents, $11,400; friends, $69, 
600; congregations of the Eastern 
Pennsylvania Synod of the Luth- 
eran Church in America, $120,500, 
and corporations, $24,000.

LeRol Jones 

in a master-slave relationship, and 
will exist eternally as the deffer- 
ences between black and white. 

Finding this separatism natural 
and irrevocable, Jones calls for a 
separate state, where the Negroes 
will have "absolute power" over 
their own lives — power over the 
education their children receive, 
power over the businesses in their 
own districts, power in the govern- 
ment which controls them, etc. 

In Jones' view of twentieth cen- 
tury politics, it is power that "legi- 
timizes anything," and as long as 
American power lies wholely in 
the hands of the white man, only 
white needs are going to be satis- 
fled. And, as Jones pointed out, 
White Power is hardly a benign 
reality; it eliminates competition, 
and that means it eliminates at- 
tempts made by the Negroes to 
obtain some control over their own 
Uves. 

Negro chorus 

With this thought in mind, Jones 
advocates the collectivization of 
Negro force for the Big Put-Down 
of the White Man. He wants to 
gather the many single black 
voices into a unison chant directed 
at the White Man: a big "Fuck 
you, fuck you all." And he wants 
that chorus, the words of which 
sound so crude, so downright of- 
fensive to our white (lily-white) 
ears, to sound forth soon. 

Jones was, in short, no joy to 
hear. However, his description of 
being a Negro in a white nation 
must be reckoned with, for he is 
the one who sees what we cannot, 



who lives where we would not, 
who is forced to eat what we 
could not. 

His presentation, in an artistic 
sense, of what he had to say was 
faultless — Jones is a writer sensi- 
tive to words and the power which 
lies in their combinations, and he 
is able to re-create rhythms of 
speech which few white men can. 
He is, to Negro literature, close to 
what Charlie Parker is to Negro 
jazz. 

Solutions? 

But his proposed solutions — 
what about them? Are black pow- 
er and black nationalism, to the 
point of creating a state within 
the United (sic) States, the only 
workable solutions to the prob- 
lem? 

We, who represent for the most 
part, the white middle-class, 
whose rights" and "freedom" go 
unquestioned, are not the ones in 
the slums, waiting and rotting 
while we wait. Until we have 
some answers, some solutions, we 
whites would like the blacks to 
wait some more — but, as ever, we 
would be comfortably resting on 
top of them. 

And, now, our rest is being dis- 
turbed, and not just in Newark. 
Suddenly the features of the Negro 
are becoming more distince, and 
we are seeing in their black faces 
the reflection of the hate and 
apathy which we have continually 
turned towards them. It's a hor- 
rible image, and anyone who saw 
and heard and understood LeRoi 
Jones should never be allowed to 
forget it.

Fraud, coercion mold Viet Nam election 



by Trail Van Dinh 
CPS 

Politics in South Vietnam in the 
recent years have always had ele- 
ments of a tragi-comedy. 

As the main theme of the play 
is "democracy," the interested 
audience "American," the actors 
have to wear a mask to suit the 
purpose. The mask is "elections." 
Balloting would take place, over 
80 per cent of the people would 
vote. Washington would call it a 
success until the stage collapses 
leaving dead bodies and broken 
furniture on the scene. 

For the seventh time (two Pres- 
idential elections in 1955 and 1961; 
four legislative elections in 1956, 
1959, 1963, 1966) since Vietnam 
was divided temporarily by the 
1954 Geneva Agreements, the tired 
people of South Vietnam went to 
the polls. On September 3, from 
7 a.m. to 4 p.m., 83 per cent of 
5,853,251 voters proceeded to 8,824 
polling places to cast their votes 
to elect a president, a vice presi- 
dent and 60 senators. The number 
of registered voters had jumped 
from 5,553,251 in one month to 
the present 5,853,251. 

Extra votes 

"We are prolific in Vietnam, but 
not that prolific," said Tran Von 
Huong, a civilian candidate who 
finished fourth. Replied General 
Nguyen Van Thieu, the head of 



Food remains same 
with new director 

Richard Smith, a native of the 
Lehigh Valley, has assumed the 
position of food service director at 
Muhlenberg. Before coming to the 
college, he served as the first food 
service director of the Allentown 
College of St. Francis de Sales in 
Center Valley. Prior to holding 
this post he was the faculty din- 
ing room manager at Lehigh Uni- 
versity. 

Smith has not formed any new 
policies or effected changes for the 
meal plan other than the annoying 
practice of requiring the presenta- 
tion of meal tickets at every meal. 
He does, however, plan to con- 
tinue holding such events as smor- 
gasbords and special theme din- 
ners. A student dining committee, 
which meets with the food service 
director from time to time to dis- 
cuss dining facilities and policies, 
will also be retained. 



state and military candidate, with 
a touching candor: "Some soldiers 
have given two voting cards." 

General Nguyen Ngoc Loan, the 
chief of poUce, often called The 
Saigon Himmler, had declared on 
August 22: "National policemen 
would be stationed inside and out- 
side booths all over the country. 
As the national police are the 
people in closest contact with the 
lowest echelon, there will be police 
telling them where to vote, how to 
vote, and when to vote." (Saigon 
Post, August 23, 1967). 

Captive voter 

The Vietnamese voter is a cap- 
Jive voter: the police stamped his 
registration card and anyone sub- 
sequently searched (a routine in 
South Vietnam) and found with- 
out the election day stamp on his 
card will be in danger of auto- 
matic classification as a Viet Cong 
and subjected to prison or death. 

Even with these precautions, 
the military junta was not sure. 

On the eve of the election day, 
two dailies in Saigon, the Than 
Chung (Sacred Bell) and Sang 
(Light) were closed. Three weeks 
earlier, another daily, the Dan 
Chung (People) was shut down. 
All these despite the fact that offi- 
cially censorship was abolished 
and the Constitution guarantees 
the freedom of the press. 

Several ' officers, among them 
Brigadier General Phan Trong 
Chinh (commander of the 25th 
division near Saigon), and Colonel 
Pham Van Lieu, former chief of 
police, were put under house 
arrest. 

Several students (mostly Bud- 
dhists) disappeared from their 
homes, some imprisoned, some 
liquidated.

Declared General Thieu when 
asked about the closure of the 
newspapers: "Even in a democ- 
racy, one has the right to suppress 
newspapers that aid one's ene- 
mies." 

Discipline over democracy 

Echoed Chief of Police Loan: 
"Democracy is fine for the poli- 
ticians, but me, I favor national 
discipline." (Washington Post, 
September 3, 1967). 

General Ky much earlier had 
been more specific on "democracy" 
and had stated that he "might re- 
spond militarily" if a civilian 
whose policies he disagreed with 
won the election. "In any demo- 
cratic country, you have the right 
to disagree with the views of 
others." (New York Times, May 
14, 1967). And on July 27, 1967 
General Ky repeated "If any op- 
position ticket in South Vietnam's 
presidential elections should win 
by trickery, we will overthrow it." 

Who else in South Vietnam 
could use tricks but the junta it- 
self? General Ky's threat came at 
the time when, at his instigation, 
a "military committee" was form- 
ed to serve as a kitchen cabinet 
for the new military government 
if the Thieu-Ky ticket wins. In 
the most unlikely case of its ticket 
losing, the committee would serve 
to overthrow the civilian elected 
President. 

"Wholesome" election 

All these unnecessary precau- 
tions and threats were taken and 
made even when possible competi- 
tors were excluded in advance 
from the race: 

General Duong Van Minh (Big 
Minh) former chief of state and 
Dr. Au Truong Thanh, former 
Minister of Economy and Finance 
who planned to run on a peace 
platform, were banned from run- 
ning. 

So the stage was all set for the 
September 3 show. Washington 
put the final touch by sending a 
22-man Presidential mission guid- 
ed by former Ambassador Henry 
Cabot Lodge, who had openly fav- 
ored military regimes in South 
Vietnam. The mission members, 
feted by Saigon government and 
the U. S. Embassy, escorted by 
government agents, communicat- 
ing with people by government 
interpreters, toured half a dozen 
polling stations (8,824 in all) has 
passed its verdict: good show. 
"Good, orderly, wholesome," Am- 



bassador Lodge declared. 
Fraud charged 

The results of the elections: 83 
per cent of people voted (exactly 
as predicted by the U. S. Embassy 
in Saigon). The Thieu-Ky mili- 
tary ticket won by 35 per cent of 
the votes. Already seven out of 
ten civilian candidates lodged pro- 
test of fraud with the Constituent 
Assembly which will have until 
October 2 to certify the validity 
of the elections. Dr. Phan Khac 
Suu. the civilian candidate who 
finished third and who is also the 
chairman of the Constituent As- 
sembly complained that in many, 
many areas, his workers had esti- 
mated the turnout at only 10 per 
cent. Lots of complaints to come 
but it is not going to change the 
situation anyway. 

One surprise (to Washington): 
a Saigon lawyer, Mr. Truong Dinh 
Dzu who campaigned on the plat- 
form of peace and anti-military 
junta in the clearest terms pos- 
sible, finished second with 17 per 
cent of the votes. 

Why were Washington and the 
U. S. mission in Saigon surprised? 
If there is any indication at all 
of the mood and desire of the 
Vietnamese people, it is their ob- 
vious • concern about war and 
about the corrupted dictatorship 
of the military. 



General Thieu talked about peace 
and negotiations. But the Viet- 
namese have no voice in this war. 
Lamented columnist Joseph Kraft 
from Saigon: "But as long as Sai- 
gon (read: the U. S. military es- 
tablishment in Saigon) thinks vic- 
tory, it is very hard for Washing- 
ton to move toward settlement. 
And thus the present outlook de- 
spite the new setting created by 
the new elections, remains bar- 
ren." 

Washington and Saigon do not 
think only victory but they expect 
"representative, democratic gov- 
ernment" to emerge even with the 
old cast. 

Trouble ahead 

More to come. There will be 
in the coming weeks a deadly 
struggle between General Thieu, 
No. I, and Vice Air Marshall Ky, 
the No. 2 who will try harder. Ky 
is not going to be a figurehead as 
a vice president who should give 
up both the Premiership and the 
Air Command with the profits and 
powers provided by these two 
functions. But Thieu, cunning and 
less talkative, may strike first. 

In the final act of the show, 
there will be a lone actor: the 
U. S. and its suffocating military 
might against a background of 
dead bodies and burned villages 
of a deserted Vietnam.

I-M rules altered 
to facilitate play 

by Jon Fischer 

The 1967-68 intramural season has begun under new lead- 
ership and with several innovations. Sam Beidleman is I-M 
Director, replacing Charles Kuntzleman, who is now teaching 
at Harleysville, Pa. Trainer Kishline will handle equipment, 
registration and scheduling, and Doug Wenrich has offered 
to be "Student-in-Charge" of the intramural program. Wen- 
rich will help in the scheduling and refereeing of games. The 
intramural program itself will remain the same as last year 
except for two noteworthy changes. 

First, because of the scheduling problems last spring, when 
four sports were being played at once, tennis has now been 
moved to the fall. That means that tennis matches will prob- 
ably begin within the next few weeks. 

The second major change has occurred in point-awarding. 
Instead of five points per man lettering in a varsity sport, each 
team will now receive ten points per letterman, and five points 
if a team member played an intercollegiate sport, but did 
not letter. Also, if an I-M team member letters on two inter- 
collegiate teams during the school year, his intramural team 
will receive a bonus 15 points. If he is a three-letterman, 
playing three different intercollegiate sports, his team will 
receive a bonus of 25 points. Thus, one man, by lettering in 
three different sports during the year, can add 55 points to 
his intramural team. 

This year Mr. Beidleman hopes to have the gym available 
more often for intramural play. As much as possible, outside 
organizations using the gym have been limited to weekends, 
thus preventing frequent postponements and scheduling jams. 

Football has gotten under way, but there is still a need 
for referees for this and other fall sports. Anyone interested 
is urged to contact Mr. Beidleman, Mr. Kishline or Doug 
Wenrich. Officials are paid $1.75 per game. I-M information 
will be posted daily at 10 a.m. on the bulletin board in the 
west end of Memorial Hall. 

New recruitment policy 
strengthens Mule team 

by Joe Scholtes 

At this time of year, Muhlenberg sports fans are asking 
"how's the football team look?" The reply is, "It looks pretty 
good. The players are enthusiastic and are looking forward 
to a successful season." Of course, the same is probably being 
said of every other team 



on the 

Berg schedule. And the same re- 
ply might have been used last year 
to describe Muhlenberg. But the 
reply is probably more accurate 
this year than last. For anyone 
who has seen the team practice 
and scrimmage in the past three 
weeks will testify that at the pres- 
ent time the 1967 team is better 
than any squad Berg has had in 
recent years. 

What is the reason for this com- 
parative improvement and the 
high optimism prevailing among 
members of the coaching staff? 
"Numbers and enthusiasm," ac- 
cording to head coach Ray Whis- 



Club charters 
bridge tourney 

Last year several interested stu- 
dents organized a duplicate bridge 
society. Meeting weekly, this 
group gave the many bridge en- 
thusiasts on the Muhlenberg cam- 
put a place to meet and play in 
a competitive atmosphere. Last 
semester many showed a desire 
for some sort of weekly tourna- 
ment to be continued on a more 
permanent basis. In accordance 
with this a Muhlenberg Duplicate 
Bridge Society will be chartered 
this year. 

The first organizational meet- 
ing will be held on Tuesday, Sep- 
tember 26 in the Union. The pur- 
pose of this meeting will be to 
adopt a constitution which will be 
presented to the Student Council. 

Anyone with the desire to play 
bridge is welcome to join the So- 
ciety. Those not able to attend 
the initial meeting may contact 
Lew Behringer (box 110). 



pell. These are the two most im- 
portant assets the squad now pos- 
sesses. Why? "In order to play 
two platoon football we must 
specialize," Whlspell commented. 
Such specialization is only possible 
with a large squad such as the 
Mules now have. 

Enthusiasm is Important to any 
sport, and the 1967 team is en- 
thusiastic. The leadership of the 
team is in part responsible for this 
enthusiasm, but even more impor- 
tant is the fact that thirty-four of 
the fifty-seven men on the team 
are freshmen. These frosh have 
brought with them a vibrant, fresh 
attitude which has infected every- 
one connected with the football 
program. 

It was a minor change in Muh- 
lenberg athletic policy which is 
responsible for the astonishing 
number of freshmen. For the first 
time since athletic scholarships 
were discontinued, the coaching 
staff was allowed last year to visit 
high schools and scout for football 
material. No financial aid could be 
offered, but the college's academic 
standing provided an excellent 
selling point. This policy change 
has resulted in an increased num- 
ber of student athletes, whose 
presence will be noticed on all 
Berg teams this year. 

Another change to notice this 
season is the use of the I-forma- 
tion when the Mules are on of- 
fense. This change was made for 
two reasons, according to Coach 
Whispell. First, "to provide more 
advantageous blocking" and, sec- 
ond, "to take better advantage of 
our available talent." With the 
new formation, the Mules can be 
expected to score more points than 
they did last season. 



Harriers seek 
enthusiasm, 
fan support 

Cross country isn't an easy sport. 
There's no break between periods 
to stop to rest. There's no time to 
sit down for a drink of water. 
There's no halftime to discuss 
strategy with the coach. It's just 
solid, determined, self-disciplined 
running — 5.3 miles worth of run- 
ning. 

Coach Charles Theisen hasn't 
experienced much luck as far as 
winning seasons go in cross coun- 
try during his ten years of coach- 
ing at Muhlenberg. One reason is 
that the demands of cross country 
scare the good runner and block 
him from participating in the 
sport. As an excuse, the boy says 
he has no time and cross country 
would take too much valuable 
study time away. Coach Theisen 
offers two arguements in response 
to this excuse. 

"Often a student becomes men- 
tally tired from being bogged 
down in constant study. No matter 
how much studying he attempts, 
the tired mind will not absorb the 
subject material. The best way to 
relieve this mental tension is to 
participate in physical activity. 

"In cross country, the boy 
doesn't have to wait for others, or 
stop to have the coach lecture 
someone on a mistake. Everything 
is dependent on the runner's own 
disciplining. He runs at his own 
pace. Often a boy can leave his 
room, run the course, and be back 
in his room within forty-five min- 
utes." 

The first of ten meets takes place 
on September 30, when the Mules 
take on Dickinson and Delaware 
Valley in a tri-meet at home. 



Girls' hockey squad 
to pick up sticks 



by Susan 

The most celebrated collection 
of athletes on the Muhlenberg 
campus in recent years, the wo- 
men's Held hockey team, has be- 
gun practice and is hoping to con- 
tinue its winning ways in the 1967 
season. Last year's squad defeat- 
ed seven opponents, losing only to 
Elizabethtown. 

Miss Jean Hecht, who has com- 
piled the enviable record of 48 
wins, two losses, and three ties in 
her career at Muhlenberg, has not 
decided which girls will comprise 
the starting eleven. One of her 
major concerns is strengthening 
the left side of the field, which was 
weakened considerably by the 
graduation of forwards Barbara 
Bondi and Jean Monson and full- 
back Kirsten Kuhnt. Miss Hecht 
added that several freshmen are 
giving upperclassmen stiff compe- 
tition for their positions. 

Asked for predictions on this 



Mensch 

year's schedule, Miss Hecht's only 
comment was that "we'll try our 
best." She did foresee hard-fought 
contests with Lebanon Valley, 
Millersville, and Elizabethtown. 
Muhlenberg will meet its first op- 
ponent, Moravian, on the home 
field September 27. Starting time 
for home games is 4 p.m. 

Players returning from last 
year's squad are seniors Coralie 
Bloom, Kathy Harman, Judy 
Jones, Lyn Vogt, Betsy Weller; 
juniors Merri Gehr, Charlotte 
Greer, Peggy Rogers, Sue Strimel; 
and sophomores Carol Crown, 
Maureen Davey, Jean Kraynak, 
Marylu McCarthy, Linda Roen- 
ning, and Betty Wheat. New mem- 
bers are Sally Barbour, Carolyn 
Barker, Jane Chapman, Kae Ernst, 
Karen Hoffman, Janice Murray, 
Donna Reifenrath, Louise Schneid- 
er, Sarah Schaffer, Ginger Sellew, 
Ronnie Siegel, and Kathy Strimel.

Berg overpowers Haverford 
in preseason scrimmage 

by Peter Helwig 

Muhlenberg football fans got their first taste of the 1967 
squad as the Mules trounced Haverford 28-0 in a hard-hitting 
scrimmage last Saturday afternoon. No score was kept during 
the first half, as each team experimented with different per- 
a controlled scrimmage.

sonell 

both squads running 
plays in groups of ten. 

Ron Henry starred at quarter- 
back, directing to two quick scores 
in the third period, the second of 
which came on an 82-yard side- 
line run by sophomore Joe Di- 
Panni. Paul Fisher engineered the 
last two Muhlenberg tallies, scor- 
ing the final one himself on a 
fourth down situation from seven 
yards out. 

The Mules' passing seemed par- 
ticularly effective throughout the 
second half, although it was the 
ground game that churned out 
most of the yardage. On the first 
drive Henry hit Dave Yoder and 



Mark Hastee two times each on 
well-executed pass patterns, while 
Fisher was more successful in di- 
recting the running attack. Veter- 
an fullback Gordy Bennett, Di- 
Panni, and freshmen Tom Saeger 
and Danny Young looked especial- 
ly sharp in the offensive backfield. 

The Berg defensive unit appear- 
ed even more promising as fresh- 
men defenders help to bolster a 
strong compliment of returning 
lettermen. While the Mules have 
not yet met a significenl test, it 
seems difficult for those close to 
the team to suppress a novel feel- 
ing of cautious optimism.

Varsity athletes prep for fall sports 



Whispell boasts strong grid squad; 
frosh to play large role in '67 plans 

by Jack McCallum 

With last year's dismal season behind, football appears ready to assume its rightfully 
dominant place on the Muhlenberg sports scene. The. 1967 edition of the Mule varsity 
looks to be the strongest in many years and expectations for a highly competitive season 
are high in all quarters. Coach Whispell feels this year's team is the strongest since he 
took over as athletic director 



Mule booters seek .500 mark 
with record crop of aspirants 



The Muhlenberg College soccer 
team awaits the opening of the 
1967 soccer season with a great 
deal of enthusiasm. The Mules 
will be trying to better last sea- 
son's excellent 6-5-1 record and 
finish over the .500 mark for the 
fourth year in a row. 

The squad's optimism is well 
founded, for the two new coaches, 
Don Boyer and Ron Lauchner, 
have ten seasoned lettermen from 
last year's team as well as a good- 
looking crop of newcomers to 
work with. This year saw the 
largest turnout of candidates for 
the team since its inception in 



sity are senior Jeff Schmitt, junior 
Tom Casterina, sophs Jim Roark, 
Dave Senner, Herb Doller, and 
Dave Wilson. 

The squad's complement of 
freshmen is one of the largest ever 
and many frosh are expected to 
air their talents on the varsity. 

Coaches Boyer and Lauchner 
feel the -67 squad is one of the 
most spirited and enthusiastic they 
have seen. The coaches share the 
whole team's optimism, citing two 
factors which will make the dif- 
ference between an average sea- 
son and a great one. 

The first factor is the question-

1943. An overabundance of qual- 
ified kickers necessitated the form- 
ation of Muhlenberg's first J.V. 
soccer team. 

Heading the group of returning 
lettermen are co-captains Lee 
Krug and Tony Rooklin, both sen- 
iors playing in their fourth year 
of varsity competition. Rooklin, 
at 5'8" and 145 lbs., was an All- 
Middle Atlantic Conference goalie 
as a sophomore, while Krug, 6'1" 
180 lbs., was chosen All-MAC 
right halfback last year. 

The rest of the varsity letter- 
men include senior Bob Preyss 
(6'1"-180 lbs.), juniors Mike 
Stoudt <5'10"-180 lbs.), last sea- 
son's leading scorer; Ken Van- 
Gilder <5'10" - 160 lbs.), Ed Gilroy 
(5'10" - 160 lbs.), Pete Moriarity 
(5'11"-165 lbs.), and Rich ZeoU 
and sophomores Tom Derstine 
(5*11"- ISO lbs.) adn Ron Tuma 
<6'2" - 195 lbs.). Junior Al Sheer, 
who received a varsity letter as a 
freshman but missed last season 
due to injury, is expected to add 
depth to the squad.

able strength of the offensive front 
line. The team sorely misses the 
services of last year's co-captains, 
center forward Chuck Price and 
inside right Bucky Buckholz, now 
gradautes. The fact that three of 
five front line positions must be 
filled by newcomers could hurt 
the Mules' scoring kick. 

The other factor is the number 
of injuries to key players. Al- 
ready, several members of the 
team, including starter Rich Zeoli, 
who is out for two weeks due to 
a skiing accident, are on the in- 
jured list. A successful season 
can come about only if the team Is 
operating at maximum strength. 

All factors considered, this 
year's team looks to be one 
of the best ever at Muhlenberg. 
After scrimmaging Eastern Baptist 
and East Stroudsburg, the Mules 
will face arch-rival Gettysburg in 
the opening match of the season 
on Wednesday, September 27, 3:00 
p.m. at home. The team will be 
trying to even up the series record 
with Gettysburg, which now 
stands at 2-3-1.

twelve years ago. 

It's difficult to build a strong 
athletic program at a school where 
no athletic scholarships are given; 
but Whispell and his assistants 
have done an excellent job in at- 
tracting many good-looking pros- 
pects to a school where academic 
standards are high. In- addition to 
this outstanding crop of freshmen, 
19 lettermen from last year's squad 
have returned. > 

Competition fierce 

With the first game still two 
weeks away, Coach Whispell is not 
certain about his starting line-up. 
Competition is fierce at almost 
every position, but Whispell has 
mentioned several sure starters. 
One of these is Charles Barger- 
stock, a rugged 189-pound middle- 
linebacker from Allentown. A 
sure bet at fullback is Gordy Ben- 
net, a 190-pounder from Easton, 
Pa. These two men, along with the 
injured Don Travis, will serve 
as tri-captains. Travis, a 185- 
pound end from Denville, N. J., 
should be ready for action by the 
second game. Walt Reisner, a 175 
pound sophomore, is set to start 
at defensive guard, and Lee Seras, 
a 175-pound senior, will probably 
open at offensive center. The 
quarterback will be Ron Henry, a 
165-pound senior. Frank Church- 
man, a senior, looks like the lead- 
ing candidate for an offensive 
guard slot. Other lettermen com- 
peting for starting offensive posi- 
tions are John Blend, a 235-pound 
senior tackle, Glenn Kratzer and 
Bob Young, two sophomore 
guards; and sophomores Joe Di- 
Panni and Mark Hastie, both of- 
fensive halfbacks. Defensive let- 
termen included Jim

and Bob Van Iderstine at end; 
Sam Tyler and Paul Vikner, tack- 
les; Kerry Geissinger at defensive 
center; Jim Farrell, Dave Yoder, 
and Carl Pletenyik, defensive 
backs. 

Freshman starters 

Freshmen, who form over half 
the squad, have many contenders 
for starting berths. Offensively, 
there are: Paul Borrell and Marty 
Frankenfield at tackle; Mike 
Harakel, Pete Marvel, and Tom 
Saeger at halfback; and Robert 
Truet at offensive end. Vying for 
starting spots on defense are: 
Bruce Kilroy and Paul Vikner at 
tackle; Anthony Marino at guard; 
John Pricher and Paul Werrell, 
defensive end; and Bill Selim, a 
defensive back.

Obviously, much depends on quar- 
terback Henry and his back-up 
men. Henry was the leading pas- 
ser in the Middle AUantic Confer- 
ence as a sophomore, and he 
should be able to do the job. Along 
with Henry's passing ability, the 
Mules' other strong points include 
their size, depth, and spirit. The 
inexperience of the freshmen is 
definitely a weak point of the 
squad, but the presence of several 
steady veterans at key positions 
should foster a strong and stead- 
ily-improving team. 

Coaches Bill Flamish (defen- 
sive backfleld), Sam Beidleman 
(offensive line), Frank Merino 
(offensive backfleld), John Piper 
(defensive line), and Head Coach 
Ray Whispell have been taking 
advantage of the positive attitude 
that has infected the team this 
year. Whispell warns that the Ur- 
sinus Bears, against whom the 
Mules open the season at College- 
ville on September 30, have also 
begun a new recruitment program 
and should provide an early test 
of Muhlenberg's "new look."

Construction stalled 
on Science Building 



Those students returning to 
campus expecting to see signs of 
a glorious new addition to the sci- 
ence building have no doubt had 
their hopes shattered. The new 
structure, obviously, has failed to 
materialize. 

It is probably news to no one 
that the proposed erection of new 
science facilities has been beset by 
problems, foremost of which was 
whether to erect a structure totally 
separate from the present science 
building, or to retain the use of the 
present building and add a new 
wing. In accordance with a feasi- 
bility study conducted by a group 
of architects two years ago, the 
latter proposal was adopted. It 
was anticipated that a bid for con- 
struction would be accepted and 
actual construction would be start- 
ed during the past summer. 

So what happened? It seems 
tliat two major difficulties arose. 
First, if construction had gone on 
as planned, there would have been 
periods when the science building 
could not have been used at all, a 
situation which would have been 
highly unfeasible during the aca- 
demic year. Also, it was discov- 
ered that the cost of construction 
would be much higher than had 
earlier been estimated. 

Currently, a new evaluation of 
the situation is under way to de- 
termine if the addition, which 
originally would have replaced the 
science auditorium, should be 
erected at some other location on 



the building or if it should merely 
be redesigned. A satisfactory solu- 
tion is expected to be found in the 
near future, enabling construction 
to begin in mid-summer of 1968. 
Despite this unfortunate delay in 
getting started, the structure 
should be ready for occupancy by 
the fall semester of 1969, the same 
time that the previously conceived 
structure would have been com- 
pleted. 



Jones' 'power' controversy revives: 
civil rights lawyer to speak on riots 

As a sequel to the controversial LeRoi Jones assembly program, this Friday's assembly 
speaker will be Conrad J. Lynn, a Negro lawyer who has devoted his legal practice to civil 
rights cases. At the 10 a.m. gathering, Lynn will speak on the significance of the Detroit 
and Newark riots. 



As a senior partner in the New 
York City firm of Lynn, Spitz and 
Condon, Lynn is currently engaged 
as defense council for the 12 
Negroes accused of conspiring to 
assassinate Roy Wilkins. In 1958 
Lynn was widely known for his 



NSA passes proposals 
on pot, power, politics 



The twentieth National Student 
Association, during its August 
meeting at the University of Mary- 
land, called on its members to 
adopt a number of far reaching 
proposals. In hotly debated plen- 
ary sessions, the NSA passed legis- 
lation on black power, marijuana, 
student power, the Middle East 
and Greece. 

The NSA passed a resolution on 
black power which defined it as 
"the unification of all black people 
in America for their liberation by 
any means possible." In addition, 
the NSA set up a desk to provide 
black power speakers to white 
campuses to "explain the role of 
white students in black power." 

In accompanying sessions, the 



Congress adopted measures urging 
immediate legalization of mari- 
juana, and further research into 
other hallucinogenic drugs. 

Advocating student power, the 
Congress urged that students 
should shoulder the burden of 
choice in making the rules govern- 
ing dormitory hours, boy-girl visi- 
tation, student fees, etc. At the 
same time, the Congress stressed 
that the administrators rethink 
their own view of student relations 
in order to reopen lost lines of 
communication. 

Muhlenberg's delegates to the 
Congress were Student Body 
President Paul Gross and Student 
Council Open Forum chairman 
Matt Naythons. 




Statistics show brains match brawn 



The Class of '71 has been 
hailed as one of the most spirited 
in years. An attempt should be 
made to define this [much] talked- 
about class. 

There are 376 freshmen at Muh- 
lenberg CoUege, out of 1,470 appli- 
cants. Two hundred thirty-nine 
men are enrolled and 137 women. 
Therefore, the ratio of men to wo- 
men is 1.7 to 1. 

As might be expected, there are 
more freshmen enrolled from 
Pennsylvania than any other 
state. New Jersey ranks second, 
with New York, Connecticut, Mas- 
sachusetts, and Maryland ranking 
third, fourth, fifth and sixth in 
student representation. Other 
areas, in order of representation, 
are: Delaware, Virginia, Rhode 
Island, Alabama, Florida, Hawaii, 
Kansas, Nebraska, Norway, and 
Venezuela. 

More Muhlenberg freshmen are 
of the Lutheran faith than of any 
other religious affiliation. Other 
religious affiliations are Presby- 
terian, Methodist, United Church 
of Christ, Episcopalian, Congrega- 
tional, Baptist, Brethren, Evan- 
gelical, and United 



Protestants at Muhlenberg include 
Jews, Roman Catholics, and Or- 
thodox. 

Muhlenberg College is tradi- 
tionally selective in choosing its 
freshman class. The Class of '71 is 
no exception. There are 127 fresh- 
men who graduated in the top one- 
tenth of their graduating class. 
The majority of the freshmen, 215, 
graduated in the top fifth of their 
class in high school. No freshman 
graduated in the lower half of his 
cl 



Scholastic Aptitude Test aver- 
ages are lower than usual for 
freshmen across the country. 
Muhlenberg freshmen have the 
lowest averages in five years, ow- 
ing to the difficulties found in last 
year's tests. The median verbal 
score among Muhlenberg freshmen 
is 582 and the median math score 
is 614. 

Two hundred thirty-three sec- 
ondary schools are represented by 
the Class of '71, 212 public and 21 
private schools.

FRESHMEN LEARN III! ROPES: Frosh organize for pull In 
the annual Soph-Frosh tng-o-war, which the Class of 1971 easily 



defense in the so-called Kissing 
Case of two North Carolina Negro 
boys, ages seven and nine, accused 
of kissing a white playmate. Des- 
pite his effort the boys were sen- 
tenced to 14 years in a reform 



school. His plea in behalf of the 
boys was printed in pamphlet form 
and widely circulated; when Mrs. 
Eleanor Roosevelt heard of the 
Kissing Case she appealed to Pres- 
ident Dwight D. Eisenhower and 
to Governor Hodges who succeed- 
ed in freeing the boys after five 
months. 

While still in college Lynn join- 
ed the Communist Party but was 
expelled in 1936 for his adherence 
to civil liberties. His first civil 
liberties case called for the de- 
fense of The New International a 
Trotskyite magazine, which had 
been banned by the United States 
Post Office Department. He suc- 
ceeded in having it put back on 
the newsstand. 

Lynn has been to Cuba twice 
since Fidel Castro took over. Last 
spring he went to Cambodia and 
Viet Nam as part of an investigat- 
ing team for the Bertrand Russell 
War Crimes Tribunal on American 
war crimes. 



College image suffers 
in LeRoi Jones aftermath 



As was true in the case of 
avant-garde poet Allen Ginsberg, 
the AUentown community includ- 
ing newspapers, radio stations, and 
alumni and friends of the College 
have reacted unfavorably to Muh- 
lenberg's presentation of Negro 
playwright and social critic LeRoi 
Jones. 

Martha Schlenker, chairman of 
the assembly program, was con- 
fronted by local radio station 
WKAP, which challenged the sen- 
ior coed to defend the language 
used by Jones during his essay 
read before the student body Fri- 
day, September 15. Likewise, in 
the Allentown Call-Chronicle that

Summer spent 
at varied jobs 

by Karen Haefeleln 

Because many of our readers 
spend summer after summer 
working at boring and mediocre 
jobs, the weekly has compiled a 
list of a few of the more unique 
jobs held by Muhlenberg students 
this past summer. Perhaps reading 
about what can be done in a few 
short months will inspire more 
students to use their imagination 
when selecting next June's job. 

One of the most interesting and 
rewarding ways to spend the sum- 
mer months is to work with under- 
privileged children. Sophomore 
Lynn Klein participated in Opera- 
tion Headstart in Reading, and 
junior Jackie Tibbs worked in the 
government's new Summer En- 
richment Program in Washington, 
D. C. Sophomore Renee Waddy 
worked in New York City's gui- 
dance and remediation program 
for children between the ages of 
6 and 13 who have disciplinary 
problems. 

There are also opportunities to 
work for the U.S. government. 
Junior Doris Rieth walked away 
her summer as a female mailman. 

However, these jobs may be too 
tame for some students who wish 
to break the monotony of school 
life with a challenging and more 
exciting summer job. 

The interests of a few boys who 
were questioned seemed more 
morbid in character. Their jobs 
included insect extermination, 
work in'a sewage plant, and grave 
digging. 

While some of the jobs do not 
suit every taste, they do prove that 
anyone with an adventurous spirit 
and a strong will can get a differ- 
ent job — if he only tries.

The Union Board has chartered 
a bus to the football game at 
Ursinus College September 30. 

A bus has also been chartered 
for November 11 to the Metropoli- 
tan Museum of Art in New York. 
Participants, at $3.25 per person, 
are limited to 45. 

"Casablanca," a movie starring 
Humphrey Bogart, will be shown 
in the Union, October 13. A W. C 
Fields short is also scheduled. 

An exhibit entitled "The Young- 
er Years" will be shown in the 
Union from October 7-28, and will 
include photographs of Muhlen- 
berg in past years. Connie Fisher 
has arranged for an exhibit of blue 
and black oils, "Greek Pop Mel- 
ancholy," by Sokales, to be dis- 
played October 28. 

The proposed film festival, co- 
sponsored by Union Board and 
Student Council, will include a 
series of six movies on various 
subjects ranging from art aims to 
psychological chillers. The pro- 
gram is scheduled to start No- 
vember 3. 

Nominations are now open for 
candidates for Homecoming Queen, 
with voting for semi-finalists set 
for October 10. Final voting will 
take place October 20. 

Homecoming Weekend will be- 
gin Friday night, October 20, with 



parties. The Fifth Annual Alum- 
ni-Varsity Soccer game is to be 
played at 10 a.m. Saturday. The 
float parade, revolving around a 
"Younger Years" theme, will also 
start in the morning. At halftlme 
of the Muhlenberg-Dickinson foot- 
ball game, the candidates for 
Homecoming Queen will be pre- 
sented. They will be driven 
around the field in antique cars, 
and possibly led by an old fire 
engine. 

Open house in the girls' dorms 
will last until 5 p.m. At the Home- 
coming Dance, the "Younger 
Years" theme will be continued 
with decorations portraying an old 
city. The New Breed. will be play- 
ing, featuring the additions of 
three trombones, as well as trum- 
pet, guitar, and string sections. 

Union Board will also be hold- 
ing a mixer the night before the 
beginning of Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion. 



Strigga leads Gorla staff; 
to inject 'creative spirit' 

Alan Strigga, a senior psycho- lege annual than has characterized 



logy major from Baldwin, New 
York, has been named editor-in- 
chief of the 1968 Ciarla. Aiding 
the new editor will be Kenneth 
Smith, assistant editor; Paulette 
Kaessinger, senior editor; Terence 
Pike, photography editor; and 
Louis Jacobs, business manager. 

The copy . and sports editors 
have not been chosen as of this 
writing; Dr. Truman Koehler will 
continue in the capacity of ad- 
visor. 

Strigga and his staff have for- 
mulated many plans to produce a 
fine and unique yearbook. The 
American Yearbook Company will 
be the publishers of the 1968 edi- 
tion, and hopes are high that this 
new publisher will stimulate some 
fresh ideas. The new editor com- 
mented on some of the new plans 
and proposals:

Van Eerde' 
students. 

Most would agree that, in less 
than seven years, Dr. Van Eerde 
(she calls herself Mrs. on her 
syllabi; her husband is chairman 
of the Department of Romance 
Languages at Lehigh University) 
has become somewhat of a way 
of life at Berg. 

"Classes," she says in a serious 
note, while discussing the aris- 
tocracy In England during the 
fifteenth century, "are mosaics." 
Her classes, or at least her 
room techniques, are 
artistically perfected. 

"I shouldn't quite say that . . ." 
she smiles wryly, when giving a 



brief, derogatory explanation of 
James II or George HI. But, to 
the delight of her students, she 
does say it and she says it well. 

Dr. Van Eerde, the bulk of 
whose research and publication 
pertains to early seventeenth cen- 
tury English parliamentary history 
and to current African issues, is 
not conservative. The 1965 Ciarla 
is dedicated to her, and very con- 
servatively describes her in terms 
such as these . . . "lover of Bach, 
searching look, a word as accur- 
ate as arrows . . . ephemeral . . . 
force . . . determined . . . Anglo- 
phile . . . aristocrat . . . democrat 
. . . friend." But to those who 
know her, she is really much more. 

She's witty. She's assertive. 
She's understanding. She's de- 
manding. She's the sometimes ab- 
sent-minded professor: "Your as- 
signment sheets are unfortunately 
reposing in my office in the Fac- 
ulty House." 

Dr. Van Eerde is understanding 
in her attitudes towards students 
and their studies. Mrs. Van Eerde 
cares. 

She's exact, although her black- 
board sketches of Britain look 
like a little old lady's shoes, and 
she has to point out Scotland and 
proclaim, "Here it is, all hideous- 
ly out of proportion." She is 
precise. Yet, in her preciseness, 
she allows each student's intellect 
to expand, but never out of pro- 
portion. 

Unfortunately, Dr. Van Eerde 
("Katherine the Great" to history 
majors, when speaking affection- 
ately behind her back), presently 
suffers from the seven-year itch. 
She's been charming Muhlenberg 
since 1961. She has done tours 
with the U. S. State Department 
(intelligence detail, naturally). 
Scripps College. Smith College, 
Johns Hopkins University, and the 
University of Rhode Island. 

Next semester Dr. Van Eerde 
will take a sabbatical leave to 
continue her research. But fall of 
'68 is not far away. So take His- 
tory of Civilization. Fit Intellec- 
tual History into your schedule. 
Take History of England and the 
British Commonwealth (if you are 
chicken, audit it ). But do take 
them. Dr. Katherine S. Van Eerde 
does more than teach. 

P. S. Tell her Elizabeth

the publication in recent years. 
Hopefully, a compromise or a 
compatible blend of journalism 
and art will be the end result 
rather than the chronicle that has 
been produced in the past. 

"Although the book will be pri- 
marily a reflection of "Muhlenberg 
— 1968," it is one of the goals of 
the staff to make a statement 
about the college student of the 
Ws — his reactions to the internal 
and external forces that play upon 
him. 

"There will be increased depen- 
dency on candid photographs to 
carry the message or theme, with 
care being taken not to produce a 
photographic essay. Within the 
limits of the Clarla's budget, some 
use will be made of special effect 
photography. 

"Inadequate knowledge prevents 
me from making any predictions 
as to the arrival of the 1967 Ciarla 
edited by Betty Schramm. How- 
ever, the student body may anti- 
cipate a volume worth waiting 
for, and one that will light the way 
for a more dynamic Ciarla in fu- 
ture years. 

Anyone who is interested in 
working on the staff of the 1968 
Ciarla should contact Al Strigga, 
Box 203. Persons to serve in the 
areas of pictorial arts and layout 
are especially welcome." 



Local pastor 
to speak again 

Dr. Wallace E. Fisher, pastor of 
the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 
Lancaster, will speak at the Octo- 
ber 4 chapel service, at 10 a.m. 
Dr. Fisher visited the Muhlenberg 
campus in 1961 and again in 1964. 

Having been graduated from 
Gettysburg College, Phi Beta Kap- 
pa, and having received his bach- 
elor of divinity and his M.A. de- 
grees from the Lutheran Theolo- 




gical Seminary, Philadelphia, and 
the University of Pittsburgh re- 
spectively, Dr. Fisher also studied 
at the University of Pennsylvania. 

His alma mater, at which he also 
served as a professor of history, 
conferred on him the honorary de- 
gree of doctor of divinity in 1958. 

Dr. Fisher has preached 
throughout Canada and Europe, 
as well as the United States, for 
Lutheran, interdenominational, ac- 
ademic and military groups. In 
addition, he has written book re- 
views and articles for Lutheran 
and national fraternity magazines.

Religion, coffee perk 
in java house ministry 



The coffee-house ministry is one bers. 



way of getting the church into the 
world. This ministry does not 
preach the usual type of Christian 
evangelism. Instead of the church 
presenting its point of view, urg- 
ing acceptance of it and answering 
questions about it, there are dis- 
cussions about what is important 
in one's life. The coffee-house is 
neutral ground where students, 
Christian and non-Christian, can 
go to be themselves. It shows 
people that the church can be 
sanctuary to talk and that the 
church is concerned for students 
in a de-personalized world. 

The Rev. Robert Brushic, the 
minister who is in charge of the 
the "Unmuzzled Ox" at Cornell 
University, used his coffee-house 
as an example of this new type of 
ministry at the MCA Forum last 
Sunday evening. The "Unmuzzled 
Ox" was started six years ago 
with a group of students who 
wanted to have a place to go to 
get hamburgers and coffee on 
week-ends. The group also saw 
this place as a way to evangelize, 
but "hunger won out over reli- 
gion," said the Rev. Brushic. The 
evangelism did not work and the 
"Ox" has become a place for con- 
versation, poetry, music and food. 

The "Ox" is underwritten by a 
local Lutheran Church in Ithaca, 
New York. At the beginning, there 
was little student or parishioner 
support for the idea of a coffee- 
house. The students wanted to 
keep Christ in the church, and the 
parishioners saw the coffee-house 
as a threat to their way of life 
and objected to the "hippie" clien- 
tele and the allowance of liquor 
"in reasonable quantities" in the 
"Ox." The "Ox" was formed des- 
pite these objections and, since it 
was begun, it has had to expand 
three or four times. There is a 
very loose organization at the cof- 
fee-house. It is run by a commit- 
tee of the church council with stu- 
dents and parishioners as mem- 



The "Ox" opens Friday and Sat- 
urday nights at 9 p.m. Several stu- 
dents put up a sign which signifies 
that the "Ox" is open. There are 
tables and chairs all over, and 
people sit, talk and sing. The Rev. 
Brushic and his assistant are al- 
ways there, and they discuss LSD, 
sex, pot and the student power 
strife, with hippies and non-hip- 
pies alike. The pastor does not 
wear a clerical collar, for he fears 
that it is a barrier to conversation. 
The church is definitely an influ- 
ence at the "Ox," for though it is 
not "religious," there is the under- 
standing that man is sinful and 
that he needs companionship. The 
church is there, it is interested, but 
yet it is not there strictly to con- 
vert. The Rev. Brushic estimates 
that they get about one hundred 
students coming to the church 
regularly or irregularly. The "Ox" 
has also helped students to go to 
seminary or rabbinical school. 
Thus, the "Ox" has a positive re- 
ligious result. 

The "Ox" will be at Cornell as 
long as it serves its purpose and 
as long as the students want it. It 
provides for the student by not 
providing for him, since there is 
no planned program. It provides 
some time when neither the rules 
of the classroom nor the rubrics 
of a liturgy prevail. Instead, there 
is offered an occasional moment 
and setting where a freedom which 
encourages "humanizing" is ap- 
proximated. The "Ox" does not 
drag people to the altar, but 
demonstrates a kind of Christian 
servanthood to its customers.

Scholar finds Asian life 
important for U.S. Studies 



He was introduced by Dean Se- 
cor as an "outstanding revolu- 
tionary" in the area of U.S. foreign 
affairs at Friday's assembly. He is 
Dr. Charles Burton Fahs, this 
year's Harry C. Trexler visiting 
scholar. Dr. Fahs admitted that 
his speech was intended to be 
propaganda, a part of his life- 
long campaign to stir up interest 
in Asia in colleges, universities and 
government agencies here in the 
United States. 

Despite the fact that the conti- 
nent of Asia contains approxi- 
mately two thirds of the world's 
population; that it is becoming in- 
creasingly important to American 
economic development; that it is 
threatening the welfare of all 
peoples through population expan- 
sion and food shortages, and it may 
well be the ultimate proving 
ground for world peace; despite 
all this Asia is still a very minor 
item in American education, stud- 
ies and writing. 

Dr. Fahs pointed out that not 
only is Asia vitally important in 
material concerns but it is pos- 
sessed of three old, yet rich, vital 
and living cultures, the Indian, 
Chinese and Arabic, which can 
contribute greatly to western cul- 
tural and intellectual growth. 
Eastern religions, art forms, mu- 
sic, literature, dance, drama, philos- 
ophy and education are so entire- 
ly different from ours that for our 



own good, not just as curiosities, 
not just to enrich our culture 
but to benefit in all areas of mod- 
ern scholarship we should give our 
attention to Asia. 

The United States has become 
deeply involved in Asia three 
times within the past 25 years, and 
each time our background know- 
ledge and our training of personnel 
have been grossly inadaquate. As 
of three months before Pearl Har- 
bor there were practically no re-

College to host N.Y.C guests; 
concert, sports on agenda 



Approximately 90 young people 
from the Harlem area of New 
York City will be the guests of 
the College on the weekend of 
October 6. 7, and 8, 1967. The visit 
is sponsored by Transfiguration 
Lutheran Church, 74 West 126th 
Street, New York, in cooperation 
with the office of Church Relations 
at the College. 

The group will be made up of 
senior high school students and 
their chapcrones, led by the Rev. 
George H. Brand. The pastor of 
the church, the Rev. James E. 
Gunther, secretary of the Harlem 
Interfaith Administrative Commit- 
tee of City-Wide Coordinating 
Committee Against Poverty, 110 
East 125th Street, New York, initi- 
ated the visit and is coordinating 
the plans with the Rev. George 
Eichorn, director of church rela- 
tions. The group is scheduled to 
arrive on campus on Friday eve- 
ning, October 6. 

They will be greeted by their 
hosts and hostesses and have a 



light meal in the Union upon their 
arrival. The Saturday schedule 
will find them being introduced to 
college life through orientation 
lectures and opportunities to visit 
the various academic departments. 

They will attend the soccer game, 
visit the dormitories and be the 
guests of the College at Big Name 
Entertainment in the evening. On 
Sunday they will attend the 11:00 
a.m. Chapel Service. Following 
the Service, they will be intro- 
duced to the worship life of the 
campus and the church-related 
concept of education. Also, on 
Sunday they will be provided an 
opportunity to sec some of the City 
of Allentown. The dorm councils 
have agreed to make inquiry of 
dormitory residents concerning 
their willingness to act as hosts 
and hostesses for the members of 
the group on this weekend. 

If you are interested in partici- 
pating in this manner, please con- 
tact the office of church relations 
for further information. 



Ski club plans to hit slopes 



Approximately 70 ski enthusi- 
asts were in attendance at the 
first monthly meeting of the Muh- 
lenberg Ski Association last Tues- 
day night. A brief outline of the 
program for the forthcoming year 
was presented, and a color film 
describing ski events in Colorado 
was shown. 

The MSA, a new organization 
on campus last semester, is getting 
on its feet quite well once again 
this year and achieving an even 
more prominent spot in the cam- 
pus life of the Muhlenberg stu- 
dents. Membership dues are $2.00 
for the entire year, and upon pay- 
ment of this fee each member re- 
ceives a membership card which 
entitles him to reduced rates on 
all of the ski trips, including trans- 
portation, rentals, and lift tickets. 



A very exciting schedule for the 
organization this year is highlight- 
ed by Saturday and perhaps week- 
end trips to Pennsylvania ski 
areas, including Elk Mountain, Big 
Boulder, and Camclback. Plans 
for a semester break trip are also 
ncaring completion, and members 
will receive special newsletters 
describing the prices, as well as 
the ski areas and accommodations 
available. 

A membership of approximately 
200 is expected by the .time the 
skiing season approaches this win- 
ter. Non-skiers and beginners are 
especially invited to attend meet- 
ings and join the club, Many in- 
teresting color films have also been 
ordered, and speaking engage- 
ments with well-known skiing 
peronalities are being arranged. 



to drop in 1936. During World War 
II we had no training programs 
for occupation forces in the East, 
Russia did have, and this has been 
the source of much trouble since 
then. There has been, until very 
recently, a desperate lack of diplo- 
matic concern for S. E. Asia. All 
our interest and activity was 
handled through the diplomatic 
channels of the European colonial 
powers. 

Fahs stressed that involvement 
is not wrong, it is inevitable. "The 
most powerful nation on earth 
can not escape contact with the 
largest continent on earth." We 
can't avoid involvement but we 
can be much better prepared for 
it for the good of the United 
States and of the World. 



Council claims 
regs ignored 

The September 21 meeting of 
Student Council was primarily 
concerned with one issue— fresh- 
man orientation. Al Sheer an- 
nounced that the evaluation of this 
project would take place this week. 
Ken Elam and Rich Bennett point- 
ed out that freshman "regs" were 
being ignored. Parlicularly down- 
ing the freshmen boys, Bennett 
slated that they should be forced 
to "wear coats and ties for the next 
three months." 

Quickly coming to the defense 
of "his" class, Bob Roeper, fresh- 
man president pro-tempore, added 
that many of the freshmen had 
been misinformed concerning the 
length of time necessary to wear 
"regs." Finally, Matt Naythons 
suggested that the topic be 
dropped for further examination 
"until a better perspective can be 
reached after the heat is off." 

Other topics discussed included 
the opening of the coffee-house, 
now called "Java Grounds" — 
the name submitted by Jim White, 
a member of the Class of '70; Big 
Name and the fact that compara- 
tively few tickets had been sold 
for "The Four Tops;" and a list 
of groups from which the next Big 
Name will be chosen. 

Projects organized 
by Womens Council 

Plans and projects for the com- 
ing year were discussed at Mon- 
day's Women's Council meeting. 
Of special importance is the up- 
coming investigation of judiciary 
procedures. These will be revised 
in accordance with the Student 
Court, and this should be particu- 
larly helpful in the future for 
campus appeals. 

Arrangements have been made 
for the women to enter a float in 
the Homecoming parade as they 
did last year. Other projects to 
be continued include coke hours 
and the doughnut sales. The first 
such sale will be held in the dor- 
mitories next Thursday. 

A test file, like the one in the 
library, is now being compiled. 
For the convenience of the women, 
it will be located in Prosser Hall. 

Two matters of policy are again 
being investigated. The revoca- 
tion of the "open door policy," de- 
feated last year, is again being 
sought. Also, a committee has 
been formed to study the coed 
dress regulations. 

Other areas of women's council 
concern include committees on 
newsletters, constitution, dormi- 
tory council, handbook, and junior 
keys. 



MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Thursday, September 28, 1967 




Stop the mail! 



By taking the liberty to print in full certain quotations of 
Negro playwright LeRoi Jones who appeared beaded and 
bearded at the September 15 assembly, the editors of the 
Muhlenberg weekly have, so they say, jeopardized the repu- 
tation not only of this publication, but also of "this fine liberal 
arts institution." The aftermath of this attack on the weekly 
is that, for many of you readers, this is the first issue you 
have received this year. Your copy of last week's supposed 
"scandal sheet" lies folded and addressed in a dirty mailbag 
locked in the office of the editor. 

It is with resentment and disillusionment that the editorial 
board has withheld the weekly in question from the United 
States Mail. By printing in full Jones' remarks, it was not 
the intention of the publication to be sensational nor was it 
an attempt to produce a smut sheet to be ogled by naive 
Allentown citizens. It was the intention to present without 
stigma or shame a firsthand account of the essay addressed 
to us whites by black power militant LeRoi Jones, to present 
his account in the words he used. To insert dashes in those 
words which the public found undesirable would have been 
to add a disrepute to these words which the speaker did not 
intend. Further more, Jones' employment of four-letter terms 
was not meant to be obscene; to delete letters from the same 
words in the newspaper report would be to give them the 
unproposed reference to obscenity. 

Unfortunately, much of the Allentown community have 
buried the real issue of Jones' essay beneath quibbling, even 
ranting, about his means of address. Likewise unfortunate 
is the fact that instead of attacking Jones' for his vernacular, 
the community has attacked Muhlenberg for allowing the 
angry young poet to find a platform here. We of the weekly 
are disgusted by this display of misdirected criticism and 
therefore have refused to allow the first issue of the weekly 
to reach the hands of such a small-minded citizenry and, 
thus, be party to the pettiness of this situation. We are truly 
disillusioned by the attitude of our elders. 



Fro: 



School 



Just a mirage . . . 

The Narcissus complex has struck the Muhlenberg 
Establishment right between the eyes. The administration 
has fallen in love with an image which does not exist in 
reality. The murky wake of LeRoi Jones' visit, however, 
did stir up some reflections of reality with which these beau- 
tiful people are not ready to contend. 

The image the Muhlenberg administration apparently 
wants the College to give the public (alumni and "friends") 
is that of a quiet, picturesque campus with a meaningful 
liberal arts program. Yet, involving oneself in a liberal arts 
program should hopefully cause a face to face encounter 
with controversial issues which cannot be solved in the 
solitude of the ivory tower. 

Black power was such an issue raised by Jones. The 
manner in which he expressed himself was another. The 
violent reaction of the administration towards Jones made 
it clear that the smooth surface of the superficial illusion, 
the Muhlenberg image had been wrinkled. Note well: the 
repercussions came, not from the students who largely appre- 
ciated this encounter with the controversial for what it was, 
but from the Establishment — the administration and the 
Alumni 

In this light the role of the image becomes more obvious: 
it brings in money. By deduction it can then be seen that 
the image is more important than the full liberal education 
because financial considerations are the overriding factor. 

The crux of the problem is this: If there is a real desire 
on the part of the College to be "the best possible liberal 
arts institution," as the President of the College has claimed, 
then there must be a willingness to explore or at least 
tolerate the events that are happening in the world which 
surges in on all sides. Many people talk like Jones; many 
people think like he thinks — maybe very many. If Muh- 
lenberg truly wants to participate in the liberal arts, it must 
accept and study life's most brutal nitty-gritty aspects as 
well as its artistic highlights. These brutal facts of life, 
such as mode of expression in context of hateful racial 
poetry, must be reported and discussed. 

It is foolish for anyone to call for excellence in liberal 
education and then deplore its immediate implications when 
the going gets rough. The liberal arts do not include 
hypocrisy. 



It is hard not to be skeptical today. 

A war is being fought in Vietnam, a stupid war that is perverting American ideals. 
The President says we seek no wider war. And we widen the war. Elected on a peace 
platform in 1964, the President said let the Asians fight their own war, American boys 
should not die in an Asian war. But Americans are dying there. We are achieving vic- 
tory, our massive power is finally beginning to make itself felt we are told. But we don't 
see the light at the end of the tunnel, and American casualties are higher than those of 
the South Vietnamese Army. Free elections were held. Free elections in which candi- 
dates are ruled ineligible by the government which itself is running a funny kind of free 
election. American planes bomb within seconds of paranoid China, for peace. 

The generals and admirals tell Senator Stennis that the war is going well, but it would 
be going great if we could just unleash more force, and experiment with our weapons a 
little more. Secretary McNamara, who should know, says bombing won't bring Hanoi to 
the peace table. 

Confused? Well, we Americans have never been expert in foreign affairs. But at home 
we've got the land of the free, and a way of life that is the best in the world, if not the 
whole universe. Yet conditions are so bad, so utterly hopeless for people who live in 
slums that violence is their only answer. Labels on merchandise have to be read with a 
grain, no several grains, of salt. A product is Totally New because it has a new label. Even 
the hippies who were to be real human begins are, generally, fake. They were mostly 
vacationing middle class college kids. 

It is not the problems that are discouraging; the world supplies every generation with 
problems. It is the lack of an ideal, of a pillar to turn to that makes today's situation so 
bad. The Kennedy Administration was, once John Kennedy gained control, such a pillar. 
Statements made then were presumed true. Today, a government report is presumed an 
apology for something that happened yesterday, or a cover-up for an escalation that will 
take place tomorrow. 

It's tough to be disillusioned at the ripe old age of 21. They did it. 




Student power emphasized at NSA 

by Matt Naythons 

The National Student Association Twentieth Congress held this year at the University 
of Maryland made considerable headlines and created a vast amount of controversy. The 
Congress provoked a solemn statement from the paragon of liberty Walter Cronkite, that, 
"The NSA has evolved into an organization of unthinkable radicals." 
The legislation that was passed 



was of concern to a number of the 
nation's students. If the legislation 
does nothing else, it will provoke 
Uiought in the Establishment. This 
in itself is good. 

The Congress acted as a clear- 
inghouse for ideas. The give and 
take of ideas provided as much for 
the small college representatives as 
for the delegates from the big uni- 
versities. Small workshops and 
informal discussion sessions con- 
stituted the real "heart" of the 
Congress. They went all day, and 
often through the night and into 
the early hours of the morning. 

Black vs. White; to turn on or 
not to turn on; the new Left vs. 
the Reagan Right; birth control 
clubs on campus; all were incor- 
porated in small intensive brain 
storming sessions. It is difficult to 
accurately describe on paper the 
emotions produced by these ses- 
sions. At the least, they were 
mind-opening. 



Letter To The Editor 

To the editor: 

As the daughter of a Muhlen- 
berg alumnus and a member of 
the Class of '6», I have come to 
respect Muhlenberg as an excellent 
school of the liberal arts. This re- 
spect has been instilled in me since 
I can remember and has become 
even deeper since I entered here 
in the fall of '65. In this same 
period, I had also come to explore 
the city and citizens of the city 
of Allentown and had found both 
to be, as the sign says, "an All- 
American city." But you will no- 
tice I have used the past tense. 
I say "had" because in the past 
two weeks my estimation of the 
city of Allentown and its denizens 
has dropped. Since the assembly 
in Memorial Hall featuring LeRoi 
Jones, the Call-Chronicle and the 
citizens of Allentown have shown 
themselves to possess a most un- 
American attitude. The editorial 
in the Call-Chronicle impUed that 
every Muhlenberg student agreed 
with each profane word used by 
Mr. Jones. This, as any student 
wiU tell you. Is not the case. Mr. 

mot. o, S 




These are the meetings which 
did not make headlines. They re- 
ceived no official publicity. Ideas 
spawned and nurtured in such 
gatherings, however, produced 
more individual thought and dia- 
logue than did the plenaries. 

The beauty of many of these 
"Soulsessions" is that they relate 
to concerned students in all col- 
leges. The importance of black 
power, and legislation to realize 
marijuana (LeMar) is often lost 
on the average Muhlenberg stu- 
dent. Few students, if any, wish 
to go out into the field and work 
towards implementing these ends. 

The discussion groups, however, 
dealt with such common cancers as 
woman's curfews, library hours, 
and hard-headed nineteenth cen- 
tury administrators. 

It is comforting, in a sadistic 
sense, to know that other schools 
are plagued by being situated in 
provincial communities, or have to 
constantly battle an everwldenlng 
"generation"— communication gap 



between student and adminis- 
trator. However, the methods and 
tenacity by which other schools 
overcome these stumbling blocks 
to greater academic and individual 
freedom, became a source of nev- 
er-ending amazement. 

While so much of Muhlenberg 
tends to let unpopular measures 
stand, other student bodies act. 

It is refreshing to speak with 
students from institutions where 
apathy, though certainly not the 
exception, is hardly the rule. 
Where student protests reflect not 
the mood of so-called "irrespon- 
sible activists," but concerned stu- 
dent leaders. 

This concept of student libera- 
tion, or "Student Power" became 
a re-occurring topic among dele- 
gates in plenaries and discussion 
groups. One fact clearly emerged. 
The age of accepted, though un- 
popular enforced "bible belt mor- 
ality" upon the college student Is 
over.

Variety of programs 
scheduled by WMUH 



by Karen Giger 



The campus radio station, 
WMUH, will cater to all tastes 
this year with a variety of musical 
presentations. AM radio, broad- 
casting 24 hours a day, will em- 
phasize rock and roll, while FM 
will feature primarily classical 
music and programs of an educa- 
tional nature. 

The staff's own AM program- 
ming begins at 7 a.m. and contin- 
ues till midnight, when the station 
is switched over to WIBG, Phila- 
delphia. 

Of special interest on FM are 
the three hour classical music con- 
certs from 9-12 p.m. weekdays, and 
the Fuzz Cycle, a free program- 
ming show from 12-1 a.m. Tues- 
days and Thursday. 

Educational programs on FM 
aired include "Beyond Antiquity," 
a series of lectures on the origin 
of man, Thursdays from 7-7:45 
p.m., and three half hour programs 
from the Broadcasting Founda- 
tion of America: "International 
Book Review and Literary Re- 
port," "New Dimensions in Edu- 
cation," and "International Sci- 
ence Report." 

One innovation this year is the 
compiling and broadcasting of the 
station's own newscasts, which are 
presented each night from 6:30 to 
7 and 9 to 9:05. 

All home and away football 
games will also be broadcast. 

A program of plays, stories, and 
music will begin in six weeks for 
the children in Allentown. The 
show is the only one of its kind 
in the Lehigh Valley and tenta- 
tively planned for airing from 5-6 
p.m. twice a week. 

A show for the Spanish speak- 
ing people of the community is also 
being arranged in conjunction with I 
the Spanish-American Center. 

Tomorrow the first of several 
radio dramas enacted and taped 
by Muhlenberg students will be 
presented on the air at 7 p.m. 
"Don Juan in Hell" by George 
Bernard Shaw will be heard to- 
morrow. 

FM radio is all rock on Satur- 
day, interspersed by news and re- 



ports from local high schools. 

Dinner music is played from 11 
a.m. to 1 p.m., with special pro- 
grams planned for that time slot. 
One student will be presenUng a 
program of Rogers and Hammer- 
stein music and Bob Monaco will

possibly discuss the role of com- 
puters on the Muhlenberg campus. 

It is hoped that students who 
are especially well-versed in some 
area will be teaching over WMUH. 
This is an extension of the Muh- 
lenberg Free School which was 
founded last year. These programs 
would include lectures by students, 
and although no credit could be 
issued, tests would be sent to in- 
terested listeners. There is poten- 
tion for an expanded program to 
include subjects not offered by the 
college curriculum, such as cur- 
rent events or film-making. Any 
interested students or professors 
should contact station manager 
Brian Radcliffe, 

Mary Rhoades, a 1967 graduate, 
broadcasts the folk shows and jazz 
is handled by Keith McClellan. 

Program guides, with complete 
listings are available at the Union 
Desk.

relevant campus issues produce 
results. No longer is the adminis- 
tration claim "if you don't like it, 
move on" of ringing consequence 
to the new student leaders. Stu- 
dent power is not the negation of 
rules — it is the creator of a new 
process for the enactment of rules. 
Students who ignore student pow- 
er ignore themselves. They are 
safe, respectable, but emasculated. 

University of Chicago students 
fought and beat a university deci- 
sion to comply with draft boards 
and issue class ranks. Leaders at 
other schools by vocal and respon- 
sible protests have produced wide- 
spread changes from increasing 
library hours to off campus hous- 
ing for Junior and Senior women. 

These discussions induced notes 
of determination in the minds of 
delegates from many schools. 
After hearing other student lead- 
ers speak, it tended to become 
harder for a student to say "it 
can't happen to my school, why 
try?" 

In an effort to aid students in 
activating their campuses, work- 
shops were implemented. Work- 
shops on campus birth control 
clubs were led by students from 
institutions where such clubs are 



a reality. Free university discus- 
sion groups were constructed about 
a nucleus of students who are in- 
volved in free universities on 
their campuses. Similar arrange- 
ments were made for groups con- 
cerned with tutorial projects, stu- 
dent courts, anti-war movements, 
and planning to "Dump Johnson 
in '68." 

The end result of the NSA Con- 
gree was that many student lead- 
ers returned to their campuses 
"turned on" about the problems of 
ghettos, drugs and an unacceptable 
moral code. 



SNACK BAD 

Where the 
Elite Meet 
To Eat 



Chamber recital lauded; 
Muhlenberg artists excel 



by Peter Helwi* 

Last Wednesday evening the 
"College Community" was treated 
to a musical program of consider- 
able merit as student Joseph Gulka 
and Professor David Reed enter- 
tained a throng of about 200 at the 
Student Union in a recital of 
chamber music. 

German Night at the Garden 
Room was an interesting and well 
chosen program of works by Paul 
Hindemith, Johannes Brahms, 
Robert Schumann, and Ludwlg 
van Beethoven. As the audience 
was gradually transported back- 
ward in time from Hindemith's 
Sonata (1939) to Beethoven's Trio 
In B flat major, it became aware 
of the ever-increasing brightness 
and exuberance in each piece. 

Despite its chronological posi- 
tion in the middle of the twentieth 
century, the Hindemith sonata, 
while catching the neoclassical 
spirit of the period, was not radi- 
cally dissonant. The rather trans- 
parent scoring and highly decen- 
tralized tonal structure contribut- 
ed to a lyrical feeling of wander- 
ing formlessness in the first move- 
ment Mr. Gulka's performance of 
the solo clarinet part, although 
somewhat breathy and forced at 
times, was nevertheless extremely 
sensitive and skillful as the work 
progressed. This was particularly 
evident in the third movement 
where short pauses. Intense rhyth- 
mic patterns, and the use of the 
clarinet's low register combined to 
inject a dramatic element into the 
piece. 

Gulka excels 

Brahms' highly sophisticated 
and well-polished Sonata in E flat 
Major was perhaps the highlight 
of the evening because of Mr. 
Gulka's seemingly extraordinary 
involvement in the entire perfor- 
mance of it. It was decidedly 
more fluid and melodic than the 
Sonata (1939), and dynamics and 
rhythms were used more subtly 
and effectively here. The first 
movement treated several moods 
with a distinctively Brahmsian 
controlled furvor. 



In the second a few more blatant 
outbursts of enthusiasm were ap- 
parent, precipitated at every turn 
in Dr. Reed's sensitive piano ac- 
companiment. This technique was 
further exploited in the final 
movement, as the emotional pitch 
rose and fell dramatically through 
the use of highly animated passag- 
es in the clarinet. Gulka encoun- 
tered some difficulty on only a few 
of the most hideous runs and gen- 
erally performed this very chal- 
lenging piece excellently. 

Robert Schumann's Fantal- 
cstucck was remarkable only for 
its lack of any notable distinguish- 
ing characteristics, but it was 
nevertheless enjoyable, if only for 
the pleasing clarinet melodies per- 
formed almost flawlessly by Mr. 
Gulka. 

Trio a success 

An excellent interpretation of 
Beethoven's Trio was the finale of 



the evening as youthful 'cellist 
Walter Lanel joined Reed and 
Gulka. The play of the different 
sonorities against one another was 
particularly striking as the pri- 
mary melodic line jumped back 
and forth among the instruments. 
After a slightly timid first move- 
ment, the 'cello began the second 
with a superb solo which was then 
restated magnificently in the clari- 
net. The balance throughout this 
section was rather good, although 
the resonance of the 'cello was 
sometimes lost in the farthest 
reaches of the concert hall. The 
final movement began with a glit- 
tering virtuoso passage in the 
piano, and was followed by a pre- 
cise contrapuntal duet between 
clarinet and 'cello. The finale was 
very light and gay, perhaps satir- 
ically so, capping an evening of 
sentient musical interpretation.

Letters to the Editor 



MMRMHMMMRMMMM 

/'»» p't' * 
Jones expressed his attitudes and 
his opinions on the so-called "Ne- 
gro revolution," and not those of 
the Muhlenberg community. It 
cannot be denied that, by these 
words, he communicated the full 
impact of his message. Every stu- 
dent at that assembly felt the force 
of his convictions and came away 
with more insight into "Black 
Power" than five mild Call-Chron- 
icle articles on the subject can 
communicate. We now understand 
at least partially how the Negro in 
Mr. Jones' position thinks. This 
does not mean we agree with his 
views. We simply understand 
them and can better deal with 
them. Yet the citizens of Allen- 
town with only the report of the 
newspapers and Jones' speech 
were outraged at the fact that he 
was permitted to air his views. 
How can these citizens claim to 
have an Ail-American city when 
they seem to want to have a "Big 



Brother" of Orwell's 1984 watch- 
ing over the young people of today 
making sure they hear only what 
the citizens consider worth reading 
or hearing? I am sure that the 
majority of the citizens of Allen- 
town don't want this; it is perhaps 
just the vocal, influential few: The 
point to be made and the lesson 
to be learned from this incident 
is that one should have a first- 
hand knowledge of a situation be- 
fore one criticizes and if we are 
not permitted to listen to people's 
ideas (anyone's, not just those of 
LeRoi Jones), we can never get 
this first-hand knowledge and thus 
never have the chance to evaluate 
and then accept or reject ideas. 

I am still proud to be a student 
of Muhlenberg College for here we 
are permitted to get first-hand 
knowledge. I hope that soon I 
can again call Allentown the Ail- 
American city with conviction.

■ YOU WANT THE TRADITIONAL LOOK... LOOK FOR THE TRADITIONAL 

ZOLLINGER HARNED, 6th & Hamilton, Whitehall Mall, Allentown 



MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 




For years, Muhlenberg has not 
been the athletic power house it 
once was. This fact, sad as it is, 
can be attributed to an upgrade 
in academics along with a de- 
emphasis on sports, and the sub- 
sequent elimination of the paid 
athlete. Recruiting all but van- 
ished for over a decade, until rec- 
ently when a change in policy oc- 
curred. In the last few years 
Berg's coaches have spent many 
profitable hours visiting and re- 
visiting local and not so local high 
schools, selUng Muhlenberg to 
scholar-athletes. 

With the increasing emphasis on 
education, more and more athletes 
are being lured by academic repu- 
tations rather than by economic 
lures and big school athletic pres- 
tige. And when academic quality 
' is the topic, Berg's salesmen have 
found that they have had a lot go- 
ing for them. 

New effort in scheduling 

Another effort is being made in 
an attempt to bring about better 
results on the playing field. Muh- 
lenberg is slowly falUng into a 
league of schools with the same 
academic and athletic policies, 
while shedding those opponents 
who have proven to be out of its 
class. 

Yet, even with the pluses pro- 
vided by the concentrated recruit- 
ment activity and the new schedul- 
ing, Muhlenberg athletics are still 
below where they should be, and 
this is principally due to the prob- 
lem of the athlete who places in- 
tramurals first and varsity athlet- 
ics second. There are too many 
football players who should be on 
the track team, too many soccer 
players who also play varsity level 
baseball, too many basketball 
players with football ability, and 
too many student athletes who 
should be competing in one, two, 
or even three sports, but who 
choose instead the easier life of 
intramurals with its limited prac- 
tices and lowered competition. 

New I-M rule enacted 

Yet, year after year, nothing 
could be done to bring these gifted 
collegians out of the shell of I-M. 
That was until this year. Sam 
Beidleman, the new I-M director, 
along with his associates, the team 
managers have adopted a change 
in the intramural system which 
could just about rock intramurals, 
at least the scoring, to the founda- 
tion. As stated last week (re: 
weekly, September 21, 1967), the 
points awarded to the team for 
varsity athletes has skyrocketed. 
Now it is possible for a truly gift- 
ed individual to add as many as 
55 points to his team's total. Team 
and school support seem to be suc- 
cessfully combined in this rule 
which hopefully will strengthen 
Muhlenberg's intercollegiate show- 
ings. 

Yet Beidelman's et Bfl panacea 
has one glaring shortcoming, which 
seems grave enough to nullify any 
potential benefits which might ac- 
crue from this legislation. Intra- 
murals, if you haven't read your 
catalogue or I-M handbook recent- 
ly, were designed so that students 
not capable of playing at the var- 
sity level could find an outlet for 
their athletic talents. 

This new rule subverts the basis 
of the whole I-M program. It en- 
ables a team with the most var- 
sity athletes and an average qual- 
ity of non-varsity athletes to cap- 
ture the I-M title. The I-M trophy 
belongs to the team with the best 
overall group of non-varsity ath- 
letes, as implied by the deflnlntion 
of intramurals. Anything else 
would be a fraud and a 



Hopkins 
captures 
scrimmage 



Thuad,,, S.pt,mb.r 28, 1967 



The Muhlenberg football team 
was outplayed by the hard-hitting 
Blue Jays of Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity here last Friday. In the 
first half of the scrimmage the 
teams appeared to be of equal 
strength, with perhaps a slight 
edge going to Muhlenberg. The 
first half, however, was played 
under controlled conditions; thus, 
it was impossible to get a true 
picture of the two teams' strengths 
and weaknesses. 

The game conditions of the sec- 
ond half provided a clearer pic- 
ture, and it was not a pleasing one 
to the Mules' coaching staff. The 
theme of the afternoon appeared 
quickly when the Mules fumbled 
on the third play of the half giv- 
ing Hopkins possession on the 
Mule 25-yard line. Fumbles were 
Muhlenberg's fatal weakness; on 
four different occasions inept ball 
handling gave the Blue Jays the 
ball. 

Hopkins took advantage of the 
Mules' mistakes, scoring three 
touchdowns and a field goal. The 
Muhlenberg defense, which had 
stood like a stone wall against 
Haverford a week before, gave up 
214 yards rushing, an average of 
eight yards per try. Head Coach 
Ray Whispell attributed the dif- 
ference in the two scrimmagees to 
"a lack of second effort against 
Hopkins, whereas the team had 
a good deal of second effort against 
Haverford." The final score was 
24-16. 

Offensive Coach Frank Marino 
echoed Whispell's words when 
commenting on the offensive 
showing. The Mules gained an 
impressive 243 yards and complet- 
ed nine of 12 passes, yet could 
score only twice. The touchdowns 
were scored by sophomore Mark 
Hastie on a precisely executed 55- 
yard pass play, and by senior Ron 
Henry on a 5-yard jaunt around 
end. 

Johns Hopkins, which scrim- 
maged the University of Mary- 
land's freshman team a week be- 
fore Muhlenberg, was much better 
than the little-practiced Haverford 
team the Mules scrimmaged two 
weeks ago. Hopkins' hard-hitting 
brand of football resulted in in- 
juries to two of Berg's key backs, 
sophomore Joe DiPanni and fresh- 
man Tom Saeger. 



Fraternities lead the way 
as I-M football frays begin 

by Jon Fischer 

The football season is in its second week, and as of Monday night, Phi Kappa Tau and 
the Fugitives ■ have jumped into the lead, each winning the two games they have played. 

Last Wednesday, the Fugitives defeated the Doms, 17-10. Ed Detwiler scored twice for 
the Fugitives, and Lew Behringer scored once for the Doms. Jeff Schueler scored twice 
for PKT to give them a 21-8 vie 



tory over the GDI's. Gary Oesterle 
got the GDI's only T. D. 

SPE and ATO did all of their 
scoring in the first quarter — Bob 
Selbach scored once for ATO, and 
Dave Hendricks and Mike Haleta 
each scored for SPE to give them 



a 13-7 victory over ATO. Denny 
Jeff scored three times for LXA 
as they beat TKE, 19V.0- Earl Sur- 
wit, Lou Orocofsky, and Howie 
Schwartz, each scored for PEP, as 
the Phi Eps shut out the freshmen 
Rokks (formerly Zips), 18-0. 




Muhlenberg prepped for its sea- 
son opener with Gettysburg by 
taking on a tough squad from East 
Stroudsburg. This was virtually 
the first chance for coaches Boyer 
and Rauchnor to see their troops 
under game conditions. Through- 
out the scrimmage the coaches 
substituted freely, trying to get 



PEP RALLY! 
Friday, September 29, 1967 
at 4:10 a pep rally will be 
held on the football field. The 
entire team and coaches along 
with the band, majorettes, and 
cheerleaders will be on hand. 
Highlight of the rally will be 
a cheer contest. Be on hand to 
send the team off to a victor- 
ious opening showing. In case 
of rain the rally will be held

their best combination together. 
Notably missing from the contest 
was co-captain and goalie, An- 
thony Rooklin, who is recovering 
from a shoulder injury. Optimism 
is high for a successful season and 
the continuation of Berg's better 
than .500 



On Monday, the Fugitives won 
their second game, defeating TKE 
14-6. Detwiler, Larry Hoop, and 
Charley Knutila helped the Fugi- 
tives' scoring, and Irv Weinberger 
got TKE's one touchdown. PEP 
and the Doms tied 6-6, with Bruce 
Shiftman and Tim Wida each scor- 
ing once. ATO and LXA tied 
when neither team was able to 
score. SPE tied the GDI's, 13-13, 
and PKT won their second, 39-0, 
over the Rokks. Individual scorers 
of these games were not reported. 

There were more than the us- 
ual amount of safties scored on 
Hagen Field last week because of 
obscure boundaries. Mr. Beidle- 
man says that the field will bo 
marked clearly parallel to Chew 
Street, instead of perpendicular to 
it, and there should not be this 
confusion of boundaries. 

Games scheduled for tomorrow, 
Friday, are: TKE vs. PKT, LXA 
vs. PEP, ATO vs. Fugs., SPE vs. 
the Doms, and the GDI's vs. the 
Zips. 

The tennis schedule has been 
posted, and individual matches 
should be played as soon as pos- 
sible. The first rounds must be 
played by Tuesday, October 3, and 
those results must be given to Mr. 
Beidleman or Mr. Kishline by 
Thursday, October 4. 



Mules confront Bears 

Bears, Col- 



Opponent: Ursinus 

legeville. Pa. 
Head Coach: Richard J. Wattley, 

eighth season. 

1966 Record: 2-5-1, including 0-0 
tie against Muhlenberg. 

1967 Record: First game of season. 
Ursinus did participate in two 
controlled scrimmages against 
PMC and East Stroudsburg. 

Co-Captains: David Di Eugenio 
and Pete D'AchiUe. 

Offense: Ursinus' offense is very 
much improved over that of last 
year, in which they only aver- 
aged nine points a game. The 
entire offensive attack is cen- 
tered around the explosiveness 
of quarterback Pete D'Achille. 
In addition to being a fine run- 
ner, he is an excellent passer. 
D'Achille ranked third in pas- 
sing and total offense in the MAC 
Southern College Division last 
year. Pete Shuman is a capable 
replacement and performs the 
placekicking chores. Greg 
Adams, Joe Corvaia, and Jack 
Mills should be watched closely 
by the Berg defense. All are 
good runners and can 



ball when called upon. D'Achille 
should be doing most of his 
throwing to ends Mike Mangan, 
a sophomore, and Greg Tracey. 
The offensive line is led by 
David Di Eugenio and 200- 
pound tackle Mike Shelley. Ur- 
sinus sticks mainly to standard 
offensive setups. 
Defense: Ursinus' defense was 
quite poor last year, allowing 
277.9 yards per game. This 
year's Une is led by Gary Dolch. 
at 6'3" and 220 pounds, Bob 
Dixon, at 6' and 225 pounds, and 
Tom Rhody, the safetyman. 
Rick Mills, Jack Ketas, and 
Mike Mahalchick will probably 
fill the other line positions. 
Outlook: Barring Inclement 
weather, there will be no repeat 
of last year's 0-0 tie. Both teams 
will be explosive with good 
passing attacks. The outcome of 
the game should be determined 
by the defense. How well the 
defense can detain the opposing 
offense will determine the win- 
ner. The pick here, however, is 
Muhlenberg in a close, high- 



Female l-M's 
in full swing 

Girls' field hockey and tennis in- 
tramurals have been organized 
again this year for those coeds in- 
terested in participating in these 
competitive sports outside of gym 
class. Aside from affording an op- 
portunity to develop the skills 
learned, I-M means added exercise 
and great fun. .] 

As has been done in the past, 
a trophy will be awarded to the 
dormitory which has the most par- 
ticipants in the intramural pro- 
gram throughout the year. For 
each girl who plays in any given 
sport, one point is added to the 
score for her building. Brown Hall 
now boasts possession of the tro- 
phy, after defeating Walz Hall by 
only a few points last year. By 
participating in tennis or field 
hockey, a girl can help give her 
dorm an early lead. 

Tennis has been organized on an 
individual basis. Those who sign 
up will be scheduled to play one 
another at convenient times 
throughout the fall. Each match 
winner will advance to the next 
level until only two semi-finalists 
remain. The final winner will re- 
ceive a charm for her achieve- 
ment. 

Originally hockey intramurals 
had been planned, but lack of sup- 
port forced its cancellation. In its 
place there will be a Soph-Frosh 
hockey clash next Wednesday 
night. 

Scheduled to come later on in 
the year are basketball, volleyball, 
and softball intramurals for those 
wishing to play indoor or spring 
sports.

Tops wail Motown; 
frats to fling parties 



As the first of the College's tra- 
ditional Big Weekends, Big Name 
Weekend will begin this Friday 
evening with fraternity parties 
and culminate in the appearance 
of the Four Tops in Memorial Hall 
at 8 p.m. Saturday night. 

Born in Detroit, as were another 
Motown group the Supremes, the 
Four Tops have been singing since 
shortly after their graduation from 
high school. Under the Motown 
Label, the soul sound of the Tops 
was first released in 1965 with 
"Baby I Need Your Loving," a re- 
cord that rose quickly in best sel- 
ling charts. 

Since their first record hit, the 
Four Tops have had a string of 
eight best sellers in a row, and 
they were hailed by Billboard 
magazine in 1965 for producing "I 
Can't Help Myself" as the best 
selling record of the year. 

At Carnegie Hall, the group per- 
formed before a standing room 
only crowd, and have recently ap- 



peared on the Joey Bishop, Ed 
Sullivan and Tonight shows. Tic- 
kets for the Muhlenberg perform- 
ance are sUll available at the Un- 
ion desk. 

In conjunction with the concert 
weekend, two joint parties will be 
held by fraternities. Because of 
Phi Epsilon Pi's unfinished expan- 
sion project, they will be the 
guests of Alpha Tau Omega this 
weekend for parties Friday night 
and Saturday before the concert, 
and for a house party following 
the Tops performance Saturday 
night. 

Lambda Chi Alpha will be hos- 
ted by Tau Kappa Epsilon for a 
house party tomorrow night and 
parties before and after the con- 
cert Saturday. 

Sponsoring solo parties are Sig- 
ma Phi Epsilon with the usual 
parties both nights and Phi Kappa 
Tau which plans a record party 
following the concert.

Mattachine leader to defend 
circumstance of homosexual 



"The Homosexual Citizen in the 
Great Society" will be discussed 
this Friday morning in assembly 
by Richard Leitsch, a self-termed 
"professional homosexual." Leitsch 
is president of the MatUchine So- 
ciety of New York, a group dedi- 
cated to the improvement of the 
status of the homosexual. 

Mattachine is a name derived 
from the same name which was 
given to a group of sixteenth cen- 
tury jestors who told the truth 
when everyone else lied. One of 
the results of the twentieth cen- 
tury version of the Mattachine So- 
ciety has been the end of police 
department luring of homosex- 
uals. 

Headed by assembly speaker 
Leitsch, the society includes among 
its membership heterosexuals, 
while prominent clergymen, law- 



yers and psychologists 
the Board of Advisors. Leitsch is 
presently engaged in writing a 
book concerning homosexuals for 
Macmillan and Company. 



by Richard Gross 

The address by the noted civil 
rights lawyer Conrad Lynn at last 
Friday's assembly was widely 
promoted as the "sequel to the 
controversial LeRoi Jones" (week- 
ly, September 28). Lynn did in- 
deed provide the epilogue for 
Jones, as the lawyer spent 40 min- 
utes exploring the enigma of 
Jones' tirade of words and 
thoughts which had stunned Allen- 
town. 

Lynn explained that Jones, the 
playwright, had expressed the 
emotions and passions which acti- 
vate the ghetto Negro. This poet 
had given "voice to the fundamen- 
tal anger" which choked and gag- 
ged the people; the lawyer Lynn 
proceeded to discuss the social 
and political meaning of the riots 
in a speech entitled "The Signifi- 
cance of the Newark and Detroit 
Riots." 

Lynn began by describing pre- 
Revolutlonary War riots: the 
stamp building was demolished 
until not a brick was left standing; 
he continued by vividly describing 
how the home of the chief justice 
was gutted and leveled piece by 
piece, and Benjamin Franklin's 
despair on hearing of the riots. 

The disorder in 63 American 
cities this past summer were not 
riots, but like these pre-Revolu- 
tionary War incidents "incipient 
insurrectionary activities," Lynn 
stated. "I am not defending the 
riots or Insurrection," he said, "but 
they are a phenomena with which 
stiU have to deal because in the 
midst of the United States is build- 



ing up a force which may destroy 
democracy as we know it." 

The white majority is satisfied 
with its Great Society, but the 
other one-ninth of the population 
is determined that the rest of the 
people will not enjoy this society 
unless this black minority parti- 
cipates in it. 

The speaker emphasized that 
Negroes have an immediate cause 
for the riots, which is that "white 
people have designated white 
people (the police) to keep the 
black man down." The Harlem riot 
was the forerunner of later riots, 
because Negroes (unarmed) at- 
tacked police for the first time 
during this disorder. 

According to Lynn, the riots in- 
dicated that the older generations

Rodale donates The Ring: 
drawing, sculpture blend 



Muhlenberg's art collection is 
growing. This past weekend Mrs. 
J. L Rodale of Emmaus presented 
the College with a multi-media 
creation by the French painter- 
sculptor Jacques Fabert. 

Entitled The Ring, the work 
in a combinaUon of classical draw- 
ing and contemporary, pop art 
type sculpture. Facing the viewer 
is a six foot panel on which is

Lee publishes sociological article; 
investigates local attitude to Negro 



Dr. George Lee, associate pro- 
fessor of sociology at Muhlenberg 
College, is to have his article, 
"Negroes In A Medium-Sized 
Metropolis: Allentown, Pennsyl- 
vania — A Case Study," published 
in the Journal of Negro Educa- 
tion, a publication in conjunction 
with Howard University of Wash- 
ington, D. C. 



IFC endeavors to revive spirit; 
off-weekend activities planned 



IFC President Howard Schwartz 
has initiated two projects for 
Muhlenberg fraternities which 
show the revolutionary inter-fra- 
ternal spirit so long lacking at 
Muhlenberg. 

One innovation is the idea of 
proclaiming one theme for the en- 
tire school year. This year's topic 
is "Brotherhood Through AcUon" 
— united fraternities working to- 
gether to develop better students 
and a better Muhlenberg by means 
of various projects. 

The first activity is a picnic for 
the vislUng Harlem youngsters at 



Cedar Park on Sunday. This out- 
ing is sponsored by IFC to enter- 
tain deprived children and to 
bolster inter-fraternity ties. 

IFC will not sponsor a dance as 
in previous years because the time 
Is being devoted to the second Big 
Name concert of second semester. 
To compensate for the lack of ac- 
tivities over the weekends, the In- 
ter-Fraternity Council will spon- 
sor a number of mixers on off- 
weekends. 

In answer to much-needed revi- 
sion, stricter policies regarding 
rushing are now in force. 



Work was commenced in 1965 on 
this article. Dr. Lee, working with 
sociology students from Muhlen- 
berg, made over one hundred in- 
terviews in Allentown. The pro- 
ject was done in light of relocation 
of families as a part of AUentown's 
Urban Renewal, and is basically a 
study of the attitudes of the Allen- 
town Negro, as well as his social 
and economic position here in Al- 
lentown. 

It was found that the racial sit- 
uation in Allentown offers more of 
a southern, rather than a northern 
climate to the Negroes. Sixty 
per cent of the families in Allen- 
town originate from the South, 
having come to this area to be near 
relaUves. The city lives in racial 
quiet, and Negro leaders from 
Philadelphia and New York City 
have been unsuccessful in raising 
any racial unrest. The reason for 
this is that the Negroes in Allen- 
town number less than one per 
cent in population and lack or- 
ganization for action. 

Dr. Lee points out in his article 
that the Allentown Negro is living 
a life equivalent to that of the de- 
pression of the 1930's. Only 4.6 



p. cent of the Allentown Negro 
population have professional occu- 
pations, these being teachers, 
ministers, and engineers. The 
national average for professional 
Negroes is 6.6 per cent. Fifty-six 
per cent of employed Negroes in 
Allentown work in labor and ser- 
vant occupations, as compared 
with the national average of 42.5 
per cent. 

As might be expected, Negroes 
regard Allentown as a poor place 
for social and economic opportun- 
ities. Although many Negroes 
move to Allentown in order to be 
near relaUves, few will chance 
coming here for a good job. 

Even so, Negroes in Allentown 
do not feel as oppressed as the big- 
city Negro. Fifty per cent of Al- 
lentown's Negroes are property 
owners, some are landlords. 

Dr. Lee concludes that education 
has provided the best opportunity 
for progress for the Allentown 
Negro. Those who take advantage 
of the educational opportunities 
have made progress. Unfortu- 
nately, most Negroes in Allentown 
seem to lack the motivation to 
acquire educational skills.

Union accoustics 
hinder tenor Paige 

During a brief visit to the cam- 
pus during the past weekend, 
Affiliate Artist Norman Paige test- 
ed the Garden Room of the Union 
in preparaUon for his Wednesday 
evening performance and found 
the room accoustically unfit for his 
Muhlenberg debut. The tenor was 
therefore forced to employ the 
only campus alternative, Uie Sci- 
ence Auditorium. 

At the time of this writing, Paige 
had not yet appeared in concert 
and there is much concern among 
College personnel that the atmos- 
phere of the aged auditorium, in- 
cluding its inadequate seating 
capacity, will be a hindrance to 
the effectiveness of the artist's 
program. 

Paige, a leading singer of the 
former Metropolitan Opera Na- 
tional Company, has recently sung 
at the Lincoln Center in New York 
City.

Lord of Chemistry 3-4 

by Bob Goldman 

This is fhe second in a series of articles concerning Freshman 
professors. 



He walks quietly into the class- 
room, slightly hunched over, puts 
out his cigarette, and begins, "last 
time then . . ." This is Dr. Charles 
E. Mortimer, B.S., 1942, Muhlen- 
berg College, M.S., 1948; Ph.D., 
1950, Purdue University. He is the 
lord of chemistry 3-4, commonly 
known as "freshman chemistry," 
teaches History of Science with 
Mrs. Mortimer (who is an asso- 
ciate professor of history), is the 
adviser of the pre-medical stu- 
dents, and is involved in "a whole 
host" of other activities. 

While many professors prefer to 
teach upperclassmen who have al- 
ready had the fundamental courses

do not have the answer to the 
Negro's problem; the college stu- 
dents of today hold the solution. 

The generation now in college 
will not accept a separation of 
black and white men as the final 
answer. The speaker believed that 
a separatist solution, whether pro- 
posed by the Negro or white man, 
was just an ephemeral phase. 

American society needs to be 
fundamentally reconstructed" by 
black radicals and white militants. 
We must face whatever needs to 
be done; if necessary, to bring 
down the existing social structure" 
to gain that which "most nearly 
fits the ideas we (i.e., the radicals) 
have developed." 

Lynn said that the anti-war 
problem was more fundamental 
than the ghetto problem. In re- 
sponse to another question, the 
speaker stated the Negro had "an 
amused contempt for Martin Lu- 
ther King." King is the spokes- 
man for the black middle class, 
but even that portion of the popu- 
lation is shifting to the left, as in- 
dicated by the members of the 
Revolutionary Action Movement 
(RAM), who are middle class 
people. 



Seminary Dean 
to give sermon 

Dr. William H. Lazareth, dean of 
the Philadelphia Lutheran Theolo- 
gical Seminary and professor of 
Systematic Theology, will be the 
guest preacher at services this 
Sunday, October 8, in the Chapel. 
Dr. Lazareth is a familiar figure 
to Muhlenberg College, having 
been the Institute of Faith speaker 
in 1963, and also having delivered 
the baccaulareate sermon for the 
Class of 1966. 

Dr. Lazareth is a graduate of 
Princeton University and the Phil- 
adelphia Seminary, and received 
his doctorate from Columbia Uni- 
versity. He has served on the 
World Council of Churches, has 
been a Samuel Trexler fellow at 
Tuebingen University in Germany, 
and also has attended Lund Uni- 
versity in Sweden. He is the au- 
thor of several books, including 
Man: In Whose Image and A The- 
ology of Politics. 

Dr. John Oliver Nelson will be 
the speaker at Matins, on Wednes- 
day, October 11. Dr. Nelson is the 
director of Kirkridge, a retreat and 
study center near Bangor, Penn- 
sylvania, and is presently on the 
National Council of Churches' 
Commission on Evangelism. He is 
also chairman of the United Pres- 
byterian Peace Fellowship and the 
Church Peace Mission. 

A native of Pittsburgh Dr. Nel- 
son is a graduate of Princeton Uni- 
versity, the University of Edin- 
burgh, McCormick Seminary, Yat* 
University, and holds an honorary 
Litt. D. from Westminster College. 
He is the author of six volumes, 
the editor of two others, and for 
14 years was professor of Christian 
Vocations at Yale. 

Dr. Nelson has been a leader in 
the Student Christian Movement in 
the United States for many years, 
and is in great demand as a speak- 
er on college and university cam- 
puses throughout the country. Dr. 
Nelson last spoke at Muhlenberg 
in September, 1965. 



Phi Alpha Theta recognizes 
twelve history honor initiates 



Muhlenberg's Kappa chapter of 
Phi Alpha Theta, International 
Honor Society in History, an- 
nounced the initiation of twelve 
new members in a ceremony at the 
Faculty House last Thursday. 
President Ken Entler conducted 
the initiation with the assistance 
of Beth Molesworth, secretary of 
the society. 

Those tapped included Seniors 
Howard Schwartz, Margaret 
Rocheleau, Susan ScheUenberg, 
and Walter Schiff; Juniors Mar- 



garet Boyer, Cynthia Swank, Peter 
Helwig, Joseph Gulka, Susan 
Roelke, .Stephen Grinspan, and 
David Fritchey; and Mr. Earl Jen- 
nison, Instructor of History. 

Following the order of initia- 
tion, Entler outlined plans for the 
year. A tutorial project for fresh- 
man history students and the pos- 
sibility of joint meetings with the 
Moravian and Cedar Crest chap- 
ters were innovations over last 
year's program. 



in a particular subject. Dr. Mor- 
timer prefers to teach freshmen. 
"Freshmen are always most stim- 
ulating to teach." He believes that 
they possess "inquiring minds," 
and "are not yet blase about cam- 
pus routine." He feels that they 
are, generally interested in the 
course, and have not, as yet, ac- 
quired the skills of grade manipu- 
lation. 

Whether explaining buffer solu- 
tions, solubility constants, or redox 
titrations, Dr. Mortimer maintains 
a high level of communication 
with the class. He always seems 
well prepared and his lectures are 
well illustrated. 

The door to Dr. Mortimer's office 
is always open to inquiring stu- 
dents (although he may not be 
there). His usual visitors are pre- 
medical students. As a matter of 
fact, he is plagued by pre-meds 
who are concerned about how one 
bad grade will affect their chances 
for entrance to medical school. 
There are also those apprehensive 
students who insist on asking Dr. 
Mortimer if they have to take 
quantitative analysis, when they 
know that "you can't get into 
medical school without it." 

Culminating Dr. Mortimer's 
achievements are his literary en- 
deavors- In his recently published 
text book: Chemistry: A Concep- 
tual Approach, he has attempted 
to present his ideas in his own 
way. He feels that there is a 
dearth of background material in 
quantitative and qualitative analy- 
sis and ionic equilibria for a mod- 
ern laboratory. He said, "I want 
to give meaning" to the growth, 
philosophy, and mechanics of 
chemistry. With his own textbook, 
Dr. Mortimer can explain concepts 
better and more deeply without 
relying on his notes or concerning 
himself with details or other ideas. 
He began work on the text while 
on sabbatical leave during the 
1964-1965 academic year, and con- 
tinued working on it during the 
subsequent summers. 

Among his extra-curricular ac- 
tivities are extensive reading 
(from Michael Faraday to Ian 
Fleming), trips to New York, the 
theater, and painting (including 
some wall paintings). At present. 
Dr. Mortimer is contemplating two 
future publications and is planning 
a long-term study of John Dalton 
in corroboration with his wife. 

Ergo, the class is over, Dr. Mor- 
timer puts on his tweed jacket, 
lights up a cigarette, and exits in 
his "very comfortable" desert 
boots. If you should see him walk- 
ing around the campus, he's going 
somewhere. 

". . . and we'll take it up from 
there next time!"

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



College celebrates decade of women 



by Karin Gixer and 
Edward 



"The coeds are here. Delayed 
109 years, they Anally arrived on 
campus Sunday, September 15. 
They're bright, they're beautiful. 
And already in the first six weeks 
of college, they're adjusting in fine 
fashion to academic life as well as 
extracurricular activities." 

So ran the headline of the Oc- 
tober, 1957 edition of the Muhlen- 
berr News. And indeed the coeds 
had arrived. For the first time 
since this Lutheran men's college 
was founded, there were girls in 
the student body — over 100 of 
them in the Incoming class of 305. 
Stalwart Muhlenberg was the last 
banner - carrier for the all - male 
tradition of the nation's 30 Luth- 
eran affiliated liberal arts colleges. 

Berg's female invasion caused 
strong repercussions in every as- 
pect of school life. 

Hazing rigorous 

The female frosh were not spar- 
ed the rigors of hazing. With much 
delight, upperclassmen ordered the 
nervous coeds to shout out college 
songs and cheers, as well as scrub 
General Pete and count blades of 
grass. 

According to Mrs. Delores Fede- 
rico, an "on-the-spot" freshman in 
1957, hazing was more strict for 
girls than men since the male pop- 
ulation took great pleasure in 
causing misery for the freshmen 
women. Frosh who violated regs 
dreaded most having to appear be- 
fore a tribunal, whose sole pur- 
pose was to mete out punishments 
to the quavering lawbreakers. 

Ten years ago, instead of the 
now annual volleyball game, the 
girls were subjected to a rigorous 
match similar to rugby. They had 
to carry a medicine ball from the 
middle of the football field to one 
goal post or the other, with no 
holds barred. 

Smoking forbidden 

The first Dean of Women, Heim- 
traut Dietrich, was responsible for 
initiating a strict dress code, as she 
felt it her responsibility to estab- 
lish a precedent for the girls. A- 
mong some of the regulations 
were: 

1. Dresses could not be shorter 
than knee level. 

2. No shorts were allowed on 
campus, even in the girl's lounge. 
Shorts were only acceptable for 
tennis playing. 

3. No shorts or pants were per- 
mitted in town. 

4. No smoking at all was per- 
mitted on campus. 

Curfews required freshmen girls 
to be in by 8:30 p.m. Monday 
through Thursday, while sopho- 
mores and juniors (transfers from 
other institutions) had to be in by 
10 and 11, respectively. Friday 
and Saturday night curfews were 
12 o'clock midnight, with Sunday 
hours set at 10:30. Girls on aca- 
demic probation had to be in the 
dormitory earlier than other mem- 
bers of their class so that they

realized the seriousness of pro- 
bation. 

At the cost of $250,000, West 
Hall was renovated into what is 
now Brown. The entire decoration 
of the building was designed and 
carried out by Mrs. Hazel Seegers, 
wife of the former President of 
the College. She selected color 
schemes and furniture, and even 
sewed drapes herself for many of 



done mostly out of spite and didn't 
last long. 

Dean Claude Dierolf reports that 
one fraternity on campus had a 
policy forbidding any one of its 
members to date a Muhlenberg 
girl. "But next spring, as the sap 
began to flow and flowers began 
to bloom, we saw those same men 
walking hand-in-hand with fresh- 
man eirls."

the public rooms. An old Muhlen- 
berg News drools, "The gals' 
rooms are painted in lush colors; 
turquoise or coral, pale yellow." 
Imagine their reaction to Prosser 
Hall! 

The dorm conversion was the 
topic of some laughter in the '57 
April Fool's edition of the weekly, 
as pictures featured urinals hous- 
ing flowers. 

Previously, Cedar Crest women 
were cheerleaders for Muhlenberg, 
but with the advent of coeducat- 
ion, domestic supplies were used 
for that service as well as for ma- 
jorettes and dance queens. Cheer- 
leading was one of the first activi- 
ties into which women were im- 
mediately accepted, and they 
quickly took over. Mixers with 
Cedar Crest and the use of women 
from that college in dramatic pro- 
ductions ended also with the in- 
ception of girls at Muhlenberg. 

One of the main concerns of the 
girls before coming to the college 
was whether they would be ac- 
cepted by the male population. 
Once again, according to Delores 
Federico, wife of assistant director 
of admissions Joseph Federico, "At 
first the girls were not warmly 
accepted and the boys felt that 
their rights were being infringed 
upon." One alumnus from the 
class of '60 recalls that, "there was 
fear of all tradition ending." 

The boys' dress had to be im- 
proved considerably now , that 
there were girls on campus, es- 
pecially with the advent of dress 
dinners once a week. Many fel- 
lows went to dinner in bright ties 
and scrubby pants but they had 
the required jackets. This was

23rd and LIBERTY 



Dierolf also stated that social 
life was more normally regulated 
throughout the entire year as there 
was no longer a huge influx of 
"foreign" girls to the campus on 
big weekends. 

Comments on the change were 
generally favorable. Dr. Ralph 
Graber feels that girls made "the 
student body more sophisticated 
and the men more polished." 

In a letter from Dr. Franklin 
Clarke Fry, president of the Luth- 
eran Church in America, it was 
stated that, with coeducation, 
"Muhlenberg itself will be less at 
the mercy of the violet changes 



Since they were the subject of 
so much controversy, the first 
classes of girls were tightly knit 
groups. Although no Big Sister 
program had yet been initiated, 
the freshmen looked up to the 
upperclass transfers as big sisters. 
The freshmen did not feel a part 
of Muhlenberg until second semes- 
ter of '57, when they began to be 
more fully assimilated into the 
college. 

In the field of academics a num- 
ber of changes were in order. A- 
mong them was the expansion of 
the elementary education depart- 
ment, under Dr. William French. 
There was also a general strength- 
ening in the social sciences and 
the humanities, especially the Ro- 
mance languages. 

According to Dewey Brevik, 
director of admissions, the aca- 
demic standards at Muhlenberg 
increased substantially with the 
females present on campus, al- 
though there was a rise in aca- 
demic standards for the entire 
student body. 

Scholastically speaking, entrance 
requirements for the women were 
more rugged than for the men be- 
cause proportionately, there were 
more girls looking for fewer spots 
among the freshman class. This 
still exists today. As Brevik ex- 
plained, "the admissions office 
looks for what the women appli- 
cants want to get out of school 
and for those who could have the 
best experience here." From the 
beginning, the College attracted 
girls who scored high in class 
rank and on college boards. 
Life spotlight 

The national spotlight was 
flashed on Muhlenberg when, in 
the October 21, 1957 edition of 
Life magazine a five page spread 
was dedicated to the transition of 



Muhlenberg from an all male 
school to a coeducation institution. 
The article was entitled "Girlish 
Voices Strike a New Note at Muh- 
lenberg." 

Mr. Robert Hervey, a member 
of the class of 1960, the last to 
enter totally male, recalls that the 
Muhlenberg article was slated for 
Life front-page coverage, but the 
Russian launching of Sputnik I 
that week took last minute prefer- 
ence. 

According to Dean of Women 
Anne Graham Nugent, there are 
usually more girls on the Dean's 
List, fewer on academic probation, 
and fewer drop outs. 

Girls were in extracurricular 
activities, too. Woman's Council 
was established in the first year 
and one girl was on Student Coun- 
cil in an observatory capacity. In 
'58, a girl was elected to Student 
Council but for many years there 
was only one woman in that or- 
ganization. Although no girls have 
been Council presidents, three 
have achieved leadership emi- 
nence as weekly editors. Donna 
Schultz, present editor, is the third 
girl to hold this position. 

A pamphlet issued in 1956 quot- 
ed the female enrollment figure 
at potential maximum of 250 girls. 
Todays figure stands at 600. This 
change in scope indicates the tre- 
mendous impact coeducation has 
had on the college. 

And although Dr. Schaeffer has 
had to modify his biology lectures 
considerably with the classroom 
presence of girls, Muhlenberg has 
adjusted remarkably well to this 
fundamental change.

When Norman Paige arrived on the Muhlenberg campus 
he could not possibly realize the impact his affiliation with 
the College would produce. For not only is he bringing 
nourishment to the culturally starved atmosphere of this 
liberal arts community, an obvious and indeed necessary 
result of his residence here, but his unsuspecting act of 
refusing to sing in the Garden Room of the Seegers Union 
is perhaps one of his greatest contributions to the cause for 
the liberal arts here. 

Finding the dining room accoustically unsuitable for carry- 
ing his tenor voice to the audience, Paige has had to resort 
to performing in the only alternative on campus, the Science 
Auditorium. It goes without saying that the auditorium is 
hardly a concert hall, and we find the offering of such a 
decrepit theatre to this accomplished opera singer both 
embarrassing and disgusting. 

Overlooking the glaring ugliness of the auditorium, an 
act which can only be fulfilled when the lights are dimmed, 
one cannot overlook the discomfort of the facilities, a dis- 
comfort to both audience and performer. Ventilation of the 
structure is of the most primitive sort, that being the mere 
opening of windows, and a concert-goer sitting in pew-like 
stiffness in the hard wooden seats finds himself becoming 
increasingly warmer in direct proportion to his growing dis- 
comfort. This stretching and fanning of the audience in turn 
is communicated to the performer standing not five feet away 
from his uneasy audience and he likewise becomes dissatis- 
fied with the conditions. 

Of course when speaking of an audience in the Science 
Auditorium, one is speaking in terms of not more than four 
hundred persons. Considering that the enrollment of the 
College is now approximately 1500, and also that the public 
is invited to the Paige concert-lectures, we find the seating 
situation for the concerts an absurdity. The threat of standing 
room only, especially standing room in that dilapidated 
inferno, will certainly add to the already prevalent apathetic 
attitude concerning the arts on this campus. 

Furthermore, we must recognize the distateful exhibit 
afforded the Zorach sculpture in the lobby of the Union. A 
three dimensional work should be available to the eye of the 
observer from every side, an impossible situation in the case 
of Caprice when one notes that the showcase sits against the 
wall — and next to a thermometer and the bulletin board! 
This is hardly an esthetic setting. Nor is the painting of 
Washington done justice hanging in the hallway of the same 
building. But then there really is no wall which can accomo- 
date a work of this size, for this painting requires a space 
wherein the observer may move sufficiently far away from 
the piece in order to appreciate its entire composition. And 
the new contribution The Ring sits alone in the lounge stick- 
ing out of its sterile surroundings like the proverbial sore 
thumb. 

So once again the cry arises for a fine arts center on 
campus, designed to fulfill the artists' needs. But this time 
a voice of an artist is heard among the others.

From School 

There are certain universal "bads." One of the most notorious is hypocrisy, the art 
of practising what one is condemning. 

In government, for example, officials are entrusted with the protection of their constit- 
uency. If an official allows lobbyists to pay his debts, he owes the lobbyist a favor and 
he can no longer act in the best interests of the people he is representing. The official is 
a hypocrite — he claims to act for the people, but he is acting only for his own personal 
benefit. This is obvious. 

Some officials have scruples against taking favors; these people take their responsi- 
bility seriously. These people are loners. They believe in their principles and are willing 
to eschew popularity or personal wealth of it compromises their principles. They set them- 
selves apart and they buttress themselves against the easy way. They may be considered 
weirdo, but they have a clear conscience, a force not to be underestimated. This, too, is 
obvious. 

But when hypocrisy is discussed, it is always the other guy and the powers that be 
that are classified as hypocrites. Some people think honesty applies only to politicians. No, 
integrity applies to all relationships; that is, it should apply to all relationships. Among 
the biggest hypocrites are the studs who think that expensive taste and sophisticated (or 
pseudo-sophisticated) etiquette alone will achieve success. Because there is nothing sub- 
stantial under this superficial veneer, they are hypocritical; change a situation and they 
change personalities. 

Those who can do anything because they have no idea of right or wrong are also hypo- 
critical. When accused of this, they can develop a rationalization that would flabbergast 
themselves, if they could ever be distinterested and view their own actions (without as- 
suming that their own actions are, by definition, good). Opportunism — taking advantage 
of a situation, totally ignoring other people's feelings and emotions — is not the exclusive 
property of politicians. 



Student freedom affirmed by council; 
choice of assembly speakers upheld 



Student freedom was the main 
concern of the September 28 meet- 
ing of Student Council. 

Much of the early discussion 
dealt with the Leroi Jones as- 
sembly and the unfavorable com- 
ments concerning it made by the 
Allentown community and the 
alumni. 

The question of guest speakers 
is not only the problem of Friday 
assemblies, but also enters into the 



selections for Open Forum and the 
Festival of the Arts. 

It was decided that a resolution 
will be drawn up definitely estab- 
lishing and reaffirming student 
freedom to bring In and listen to 
outside speakers such as Jones. 

A definite statement from the 
athletic department will also be 
called for, denning the regulations 
pertaining to beards and long hair 
for the men's gym classes. 



Penn editorial incites donor; 
businessman stops grant 



PHILADELPHIA (CPS)— A re- 
tired businessman has withdrawn 
a $250,000 bequest to the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania because of an 
editorial in the student newspaper 
calling for the resignation of the 
university's president. 

James Miller Clicker, who at- 
tended the Penn Law School, ob- 
jected because the newspaper has 
"played it hard on the ears" in its 
treatment of the president. 

The paper printed the editorial 
last spring and reprinted it this 
fall. It suggested that President 
Gaylord P. Hamwell had accom- 
plished a good deal in his 14 years 
as president but it was time for 
him to step down in favor ol a 
younger man. 

Clicker said he heard excerpts 
of the editorial on a local radio 
station and that it offended him 
and his wife deeply. 

He told members of the Dally 
Pennsylvaniaii staff that having 
excerpts from the editorial "broad- 
cast to 30 million people" was the 
wrong way to handle the situation. 

dicker suggested that the news- 
paper staff ought to consult alum- 
ni, particularly wealthy alumni, 
before taking such editorial stands. 
"Penn will pay for this," he added, 
saying he would give his money to 
another Philadelphia school, in-

"When you speak over the radio, 
every 'nigger,' everybody else, 
hears the whole damn thing," he 
said. "All kinds of garbage mop 
this up and all the Communist 
types love it." 

dicker said he didn't particu- 
larly like Harwell but that he 
wouldn't have done what the paper 
did. He said he had met the presi- 
dent six or seven times. 



Rich Bennett gave his report on 
what would have to be done if the 
coffee-house is to be opened. It 
was inspected last week by the 
housing and fire marshalls of Al- 
lentown. 

The coffee-house could be open- 
ed temporarily for 30 days with 
minor alterations. However, ma- 
jor reconstruction, costing be- 
tween $7,000 to $10,000, would be 
required to have a permanently 
opened house that would pass all 
the fire and housing regulations. 

It was decided that the coffee- 
house should be opened for a trial 
period of 30 days to see if student 
support would warrant a full-time 
house. 

Elam reported that the tutorial 
program has been set up with 
three sessions a week. This sched- 
ule involves an extra day of bus- 
sing. The Chaplain offered one 
Sunday's collection to help pay for 
the extra bus, and it was decided 
to accept his offer. 

Pete Nagel reported on the Big 
Name situation. The ticket sales 
for "The Four Tops" have reached 
the halfway mark, meaning the 
council will at least break even. 



750 turn out for pep rally; 
'ridiculous affair' kills spirit 



The 1967 Football Pep Rally 
was an appalling and ludricrous 
flop. Pep rallies are meant to in- 
still spirit and pride in a school. 
This pep rally, held last Friday 
afternoon on the football field, did 
exactly the opposite — it destroy- 
ed spirit. 

"Nobody cares.". Well,, not quite. 
There were 150 students who did 
care and who cheered as best they 
could. But that leaves 1300 stu- 
dents who either did not care, or 
who were previously engaged. 
And how many students are pre- 
viously engaged at 4 p.m. on a 
Friday afternoon? 

Oh, yes, someone mentions 
"there were parties and dances to 
prepare for that night And 30 
minutes taken away from that 
preparation would really hurt. 
After all, social life is important." 
Social life is important to football 
players too, yet, for five weeks 
they had been sacrificing some of 



this life in preparation for the 
football season. All they expected 
of the remainder of the student 
body was a 30 minute show of 
support. 

Of course, athletics are sup- 
posed to be de-emphasized at Berg. 
So why should students (and fac- 
ulty and administration) attend a 
pep rally? Simply because ath- 
letics provide the only area (other 
than the abstract phrase "academic 
excellence") where all members of 
the college community can unite 
and act as one. 

All other aspects of college life 
tend to divide. Fraternities, dor- 
mitories, clubs, and organizations 
divide students into cliques and 
groups. There is nothing wrong 
with division if the groups do come 
together at times in a spirit of one- 
ness and unity. If unity is not 
present, what is? A "nobody 
cares" attitude. And lethargy. 
And apathy. And Muhlenberg.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



MCA discusses role 
of Christians in war 



War and peace, a Christian's 
concern in the secular world, a 
civilian's guilt and responsibility 
in time of war, and, of course, the 
Vietnam issue. These were some 
of the ideas in the minds of those 
who attended an MCA student- 
panel discussion on the topic of 
"War and Peace and Christian 
Concern and Involvement" last 
Sunday evening. 

The members of the panel were 
Lynn Anderson, Goldie Alexander, 
and Jane Deutsch, all of whom 
attended the Lutheran Scholastic 
Association National Convention in 
Boulder, Colorado this past sum- 
mer. The topic of this conven- 
tion was "War and Peace" and it 
was conducted in student and in- 
ternational discussion groups, de- 
bates, movies, and lectures featur- 
ing various speakers. Jane Deutsch 
spoke of Dr. Hagen Staack's Lu- 
theran, not fully pro-war, but not 
pacinstlc views, while Lynn An- 
derson presented Dr. Charles Y Od- 
er's Mennonite, pacifistic view- 
piont and Goldie Alexander pre- 
sented Dr. Byron Johnson's view- 
points on economy and the reality 
of war. These three men were the 
convention's featured speakers. 

Many questions were raised by 
Muhlenberg students and the stu- 
dent-panel discussion was de- 
signed in anticipation of this, being 
dominated not by the panel, but 
distributed equally among those 
who had something to say. The 
discussion was lively and thought- 
provoking as a consequence. 

Students expressed agreement 
with or disapproval of the Viet- 
nam war. Some felt it to be a 
totally un-Christian war and, thus, 
unjustifiable on grounds of con- 
science. But then, what can be 
termed a "just" war? It was 
brought out that Martin Luther 
would have called a war which in- 
jures civilians unjust. If so, can 
any war today be considered just? 
Some said that it might ... let the 
civilians move out. Others argued 
that it could not, that too many 
civilians were involved in bomb- 
ings, attacks, etc. 

The concept of Christ entered 
into the discussion, and some 
found in the fact that He permitted 
the crucifixion to take place, a 
justification for pacifism. If the 
Perfect One did not allow inter- 
vention for perfection, how can 
we? But can we stand by and al- 
low our neighbor to be injured? 
Have we no responsibility towards 
him? A Christian analogy was 
again made. In the temple, Christ 
was angry not because He was be- 
ing wronged, but because the poor 
were being misused. Is not selfish 
anger just as great a sin as an 
unjust war? 

Then too, our - government's 
policy of conscientious objection 
was thoroughly discussed. And 
where does the Church belong? 



Should it take a stand upon a war 
issue? Many felt that it should, 
but others felt, as one panel mem- 
ber stated, that "the position of the 
Church on a given stand should 
act, not as a final decisive judg- 
ment, but as a guideline to one's 
own conscience." 

The economist had suggested 
that an international Peace Corps 
be sent to Vietnam, but some stu- 
dents found this to be totally 
irrelevant What could it do? If 
the Vietnamese governments were 
allowed to straighten themselves 
out, they would have no use for 
such a Peace Corps. 

In the student-panel discussion, 
there were many varying opinions, 
but all seemed to agree that, what- 
ever the stand, there had to be a 
conscience guide for it, and that 
the responsibility of the decision 
still remains with the individual. 
Some suggested education as a 
means of ending war, but, clearly, 
there were no real solutions pre- 
sented. Some suggested the good- 
ness in the nature of man, and the 
love for the enemy, as Dr. Yoder 
had suggested at the convention. 
Others found this unrealistic, and 
were more ready to accept Dr. 
Staack's views of the basic sinful- 
ness of man, and because of this 
sin, the existence of war. 



SPE, PEP chase Katies 
as l-M football continues 

PKT took over sole possession of first place this week when PEP squeezed out a 13-12 
victory over the Fugitives. Both SPE and PEP are close behind Phi Tau, each having won 
three games and tied one. 

In games played Wednesday, September 27, LXA and the Fugitives tied 12-12. Denny 
Jeff and Bob Hedden each scored for Lambda Chi, and Larry Houp and Larry Miles got 
two touchdowns for the Fugitives. 



SPE shut out the Rokks 13-0 as 
Mike Haleta got 12 for Sip Ep and 
Dave Hendricks picked up an ex- 
tra point. ATO shut out the GDI's 
25-0 as Jack DeVries, Bob Shan- 
non and John White each scored, 
and Bob Selbach picked up an 
extra point. PKT beat the com- 
muter Doms, 26-0, with Jeff 
Schueler and Jim Strangfeld do- 
ing the scoring. Finally, PEP beat 
TKE 7-8 with Lou Orocovsky 
scoring for Phi Ep, and Herb 
Ochitel scoring once for TKE. 

Last Monday, LXA suffered its 
first defeat, 12-0, against PKT, 
with Jeff Schueler getting Phi 
Tau's two touchdowns. PEP won 
their second close one when they 
beat the Fugitives. 13-12. ATO 
picked up their second win of the 
week with a 21-6 victory over the 
Rokks. Jack DeVries, Jeff Monroe 
and Bob Shannon scored for ATO. 
SPE beat TKE 28-6, with Dave 
Hendricks, Mike Haleta, John 
Mancinelli, and Don Hogan scoring 
for Sig Ep, and Herb Ochitel scor- 
ing for TKE. 



Booster groups provide 
entertainment, spirit 



Now that all the thrills and ex- 
citement of another football sea- 
son are finally upon us, it seems 
only fitting that some attention 
should be given to two of the 
team's most enthusiastic boosters 
— the cheerleaders and the ma- 
jorettes. Both groups receive in- 
struction during the first weeks of 
classes, culminating with try-outs 
to select the regular and alternate 
squads. The cheerleaders, cap- 
tained by Pegge VonKummer and 
Cindy Rundlet, will be following 
the team to all of its games and 
attempting to instill even more 
spirit into the Muhlenberg fans as 
they cheer the team to victory. 
The regular squad consists of Judi 
Fries, Mary Daye Hokman, Linda 
Knocke, Jamie Malatack, Peggy 
Reinhart and Marilee Whitman. 
Their fine appearance at Ursinus 
last Saturday indicates a colorful 
and successful season ahead. 

The majorettes, captained by 
Judy Oakley, have four regulars 
returning this year, including 
Lynn Major, Sue Scenber, Carol 
Mack and Gail Smith. Janet 
Gregory and Mary Ann Evans 
complete the squad. The major- 
ettes' first performance at the Pep 
Rally last Friday demonstrated 
that with greater concentration on 



precision and twirling, many ex- 
citing half-time shows will be a 
part of both the home and away 
games for the remainder of the 
season. The majorettes will be 
getting new uniforms sometime in 
October and, in order to finance 
this project, they will be selling 
red and gray Muhlenberg shakers 
both at the games and in the 
dorms for $.25 each. 



"Der Deutsche Vereln" Is 
having a short organizational 
meeting on Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the 
Student Union. Refreshments 
will be served. All students 
with any Interest In the Ger-

Thundty, October 5. 1967 



Sportside 

by Larry WrlUknon 



St. Louis wanted the pennant. 
They wanted it so badly that they 
made a league of their equals Into 
a pack of hounds chasing a shadow 
and getting nothing but second 
place for their trouble. They 
wanted it so much that they didn't 
let injuries to their best (and some 
say their only) pitcher, Bob Gib- 
son, or to their most consistent 
player, Curt Flood, even slow them 
down. They won the pennant with 
a staff of minor league profession- 
als and major league amateurs. 
They won it with a transformed 
Roger Maris and a revamped and 
satisfied Orlando Cepeda. 

By comparison the American 
League was a shambles. It almost 
seemed as if nobody even wanted 
it at all. The city of Boston was 
confused. For normal Bostcmlans, 
September and October were 
months used in preparations for 
the coming of the Celtics, the city's 
only sports team (in the past). 
Detroit wasn't much different. 
Fall months were for football and 
the Lions', and the weather, which 
more than anything eliminated the 
Tigers, testified to that fact. 
Race tight 'Ul end 

Nine games ago the race was 
tight One game separated all four 
contenders with Minnesota and 
Boston sharing the lead at 87-66, 
with Detroit and Chicago not far 
off at 86-67. For the last nine 
games the pressure was really on 
as proved by the fact that the best 
record among this elite group was 
5-4. 

To many, Chicago looked the 
best, due mainly to their strong 
pitching which should, as the old 
maxim states, beat good hitting, 
especially when the heat is on. 
But the White Sox were the first 
to fade, not even able to play .500 
baU against the likes of the Kansas 
City Athletics. 

Neither could the powerful 
Twins maintain an even pace down 
the stretch. Minnesota, most re- 
cent pennant winner of the con- 
tenders with the most series ex- 
perienced players, just could not 
win when they had to, even with 
all the "money" players they sup- 
posedly had. They couldn't make 
the big play when they had to and 
their season came to an end when 
Carl Yastremski, everyone's MVP, 
threw out Bob Allison on Sunday. 

Weather beats Tlx ers 

Detroit, unlike the two afore- 
mentioned losers, did not beat 
themselves. The weather beat 
them to it. Postponement after 
postponement caused the schedul- 
ing of back-to-back doubleheaders. 
With the long, high scoring games 
of Saturday, Mayo Smith's en- 
tire pitching staff virtually had 
to pitch with one day's rest. This 
was most apparent when the Tig- 
ers blew a 6-2 lead on Saturday 
late in the game, and did likewise 
to a 3-1 pad in Sunday's 162nd 
contest. Smith tried to force a 
playoff by patching together nine 
innings from starters Mickey Lo- 
lich and Denny McLain and who- 
ever else could pick up his arm. 

Boston could only manage five 
wins in the last nine games, but 
that's just what they needed to 
win. They saved their wins for 
when they needed them, getting 
superlative efforts from John Lon- 
borg and Yaz (4 for 4 in Sunday's 
finale). Boston managed to sneak 
through with something the 
mathematicians did not even con- 
sider, a one-team playoff. 

Now Boston's 100-1 Red Sox 
must meet the well rested and con- 
fident SL Louis Cardinals in what 
might be the most anti-climatic 
World Series in history. 



Booters 
impressive 
with 2 wins 

by Peter Helwig 

An experienced and aggressive 
Muhlenberg soccer team dominat- 
ed the action from start to finish 
as they hustled to a 3-2 victory 
over Franklin and Marshall Col- 
lege last Saturday. The Mules had 
to overcome deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 
in beating F & M for the first time 
since 1948, and did all their scor- 
ing in the second half on two goals 
by Mike Stoudt and one by Ron 
Tuma. 

The Diplomats took an early 
lead after fending off a determined 
Berg offensive thrust on a perfect 
penalty kick into the right corner 
of tiie goal. During the rest of 
the first period the Mules applied 
constant pressure but could not 
manage anything more devastating 
than a few long-range pot shots. 
Offense stalls 

The second period followed a 
similar pattern as Tuma and Lee 
Krug kept the ball in the offensive 
half of the field to no avail. A 
few questionable judgment calls 
by the officials, all going against 
the Mules, compounded their diffi- 
culties in finding a scoring com- 
bination. 

The breaks continued to go the 
other way as a Berg score opening 
the third period was voided due 
to a violation by one of the of- 
fensive linemen. The Mules now 
began peppering the opponents' 
goal, and finally Tuma put his 
head on a comer kick for a goal 
tying the game at 1-1. Thirty sec- 
onds later Stoudt stole a pass from 
a Dip lineman, passed to Tuma, 
and then took the ball back to 
put the Mules ahead 2-1. 

Dips even score 

At this point victory seemed 
certain as goalie Tony Rooklln had 
been called on to make only a very

F & M attack grew more deter- 
mined and, after making a daring 
one-on-one save, Rooklln was fak- 
ed out of the goal and the game 
was tied, 2-2.

halfbacks Al Sheer, Pete Moriar-

rest of the game. The Mules fired 
shot after shot at the agile Diplo-

mlssle from Stoudt found home. 
Muhlenberg kept the heat on and 
totally outplayed the opponents to 
preserve a well-deserved 3-2 win.

Penalties, fumbles, and interceptions overshadowed brilliant individual performances by 
Dave Yoder, Ron Henry, and Ursinus' Joe Corvaia and deadlocked Muhlenberg in this 
year's opening game at Ursinus last Saturday, 6-6. 

Both teams spent the first quarter testing their opponents and only Charlie Werrell's

sprint to Berg's 31, which was nul- 
lified by a penalty, highlighted the 
period. But Ursinus, who domi- 
nated the first half, managed to 
finally tally early in the second 
quarter. 

After Lee Seras' punt was 
downed on the home team's ten 
yardline, the Bears started to 
move with three consecutive first 
downs, which brought the ball out 
to midfield. On the next play 
quarterback Pete D'Achille hit 
Corvaia with a pass down to Berg's 
ten yard line. Corvaia carried 
again to the live and Bob McDon- 
ald took it to the two. Once there, 
D'Achille on a short count sneaked 
in for the score. Pete Shumah's 
extra point attempt was wide and 
the Bears led 6-0 at the half. 

With the start of the second half 
the Mules displayed the offensive 
punch they had lacked in the first 
two periods and took the kickoff 
and marched 57 yards for a touch- 
down. 

Freshman Randy Uhrich gave 
Henry and company good field po- 
sition by returning the kickoff to 
the 41. Sticking to the ground the 
Berg eleven was confronted with 
a fourth-and-two situation on the 
49. Coach W hi spell decided to 
gamble and Yoder, the teams' 
mainstay all day, plunged for the 
yardage. Busy number 27 carried 
the ball four straight times and 
when the dust cleared the Mules 
were on Ursinus' 13. From there 
Henry carried to the eight and 
Yoder down to the four. Henry 
faked to Gordy Bennett up the 
middle and then swept into the 
end zone himself for the equalizer. 
But the score remained tied as the 
Mules extra point try was wide to 
the left.

and mounted a threat of their own. 
Marching to Berg's 21 ostensibly 
by a long pass to Corvaia, the 
Bears' drive stalled as Walt Reis- 
ner got in the way of one of 
D'AchiUe's aerials and the Mules 
took over on their own 38. 

An offsides penalty against Ur- 
sinus and three carries by Yoder 
moved the ball to the 43 in Bear 
territory. Bennett hit for a first 
down, but Yoder's fumble on the 
next play gave the ball back to 
Ursinus.

PMC Hosts Mules on Saturday 

MULES FACE RUGGED CADETS 
OPPONENT: Pennsylvania Military Cadets, Chester, Pa. 
HEAD COACH: Ed Lawless, first season. 

1966 RECORD: 2-7, including a 28-15 loss to Muhlenberg. 

1967 RECORD: 0-2, losing to Dickinson, 15-13. and Western 
Maryland, 14-7. 

OFFENSE: PMC ranked as one of the favorites in the MAC 
Southern College Division but at this time is 0-2. One 
reason for a winless season thus far may be attributed to 
PMC's lack of offensive punch. They have scored just three 
touchdowns in two games and set up both Dickinson touch- 
downs with fumbles. The offensive is built around the 
running of shifty wingback Rick Head and halfback Dave 
Mancini. Both only weigh 160 pounds but have good moves 
and excellent speed. Pierce King is the fullback. BUI Mac- 
Queen directs the PMC attack at quarterback. He throws 
well on occasion and will direct most of his passes in the 
directions of Spike Pleraon at split end and Hill Creamer 
at tight end. The offensive line is of comparatively small 
size. Mike Gallagher is the center, Frank Mustacelo and 
Fred Brutsche are the tackles, and Ed Dinakl and Paul 
Garrett are the guards. It's an offense of plenty of punch 
and just could break loose against the Mules. 

DEFENSE: The PMC defense is led by its two big tackles, 
235-pound Ed Johnson and 220-pound Pete Panels. Also 
on the line are ends Jimmy Hull and Mike McCulIough, 
both at 185 pounds. Coaoh Lawless will incorporate a fifth 
lineman whose position is known as "Cadet." His job will 
be to line up against the opponent's strongest side. Bob 
Walsh will probably man this spot The defensive backfleld 
is fast, strong and experienced. It's led by 6'3", 200-pound 
middle guard Tom Manley and safety Joe Ptoelll. The other 
linebackers are Bob Chang and Frank Glorno. The defensive 
halfbacks will be Rollle Watson and Ed Baxter. 

OUTLOOK: PMC remains a favorite in the MAC race and is 
hungry for a victory. Their offense has failed to move 
in its first two games. The defense to rugged and if Muh- 
lenberg couldn't move against a smaller Ursinus line, they 
won't budge PMC either. It probably will be a long after- 
noon for the Mules in Chester. 



McDonald made it first and goal 
on the five, but offsides moved the 
ball back to the ten. Corvaia car- 
ried for eight to the two, but illegal 
procedure pushed the charging 
Bears back to the seven. Two in- 
completed passes ended the threat 
and the Mules took over on their 
seven as the final period began. 

At this point the Mule team 
moved up the field mainly on the 
running of Henry and two passes 
to Mark Hastie and Ted Dick. But 
the drive ended when a gamble on 
fourth and short yardage failed. 
The Berg defense held and when 
the Mules got the ball back they 
really started to move. But an 
errant pass by Henry put the 
home team back on the attack. 

Two 15-yard penalties and a run 
by Corvaia had the Bears knock- 
ing on the door again at the Mules 
17. But two offensive holding calls 
pushed Ursinus back to the 37 and 
nullified a perfectly executed 
double reverse. D'Achille was then 
hit attempting to pass by the 
strong Berg rush, and the score 
board read third and 45. 

Neither team was able to move 
the ball and an exchange of punts 
gave the Berg eleven the ball 
with less than a minute remaining. 
Berg gained possession on the 46 
as Hastie and Yoder successfully 
executed a reverse on the punt re- 
turn. After an incompleted pass 
intended for Hastie, Henry 
dropped back to pass and the 
aerial was deflected. Luckily Uh- 
rich was in the right place and he 
snared the loose ball and scam- 
pered 21 yards to the home 33. 
Muhlenberg faked a field goal and 
Henry threw to Bennett who car- 
ried inside the twenty as time ran 
out-

President delivers 
statement on Jones 



(The following is a public 
statement made by College 
President Erling Jensen on 
the appearance of Mr. LeRoi 
Jones as the assembly speaker 
at Muhlenberg College on 
September IS, 1967.) 
The speakers for the Friday as- 
semblies at Muhlenberg College 
are arranged by the students. This 
is the direct responsibility of Stu- 
dent Council, and such is a part 
of the total program of Muhlen- 
berg CoUege. The student who is 
of the assembly pro- 
receives suggestions for 
speakers from both students and 
faculty, but it is the responsibility 
of the chairman to make the final 
arrangmeents. 

A given assembly speaker, or in 
fact the entire assembly program, 
is only a part of the college pro- 
gram of visiting speakers. Last 
year there were 44 guest speakers 
on campus, including 18 guest 
preachers, as well as many other 
programs including drama and 
musical productions. 

Mr. LeRoi Jones was a "Black 
Power" advocate, and as such had 
deal to say about the 



Press bocks 
free thinking 

(note: This item appeared in 
the "My Question is . . ." col- 
umn of the October 11, 1967 
issue of The Lutheran.) 
Q. Extremely controversial speak- 
ers are brought to assembly pro- 
grams at Muhlenberg College. Last 
month it was LeRoi Jones and last 
year there was Allen Ginsberg. 
Why should a church college in- 
vite speakers who don't believe in 
God, who talk against our beloved 
country, and whose writing is 
pornographic? 

A CoUege students are in the 
process of becoming adults and 
they should be rapidly developing 
in judgment and discrimination. 
Their college won't help them to 
mature if it exposes them only to 
ideas and personalities which have 
conventional approval. Ginsberg 
and Jones are prominent person- 
alities in present-day American 
culture. Hearing them and sizing 
them up ought to be a valuable 
experience for alert youth. 



Negroes, the power structure, and 
the problems of the ghetto. Mr. 
Jones was born in the ghetto and 
was involved in the Newark riots. 

The ghetto and all the problems 
relating to It, including Black 
Power, is certainly the most im- 
portant social problem facing our 
country. The students on college 
campuses, including those at Muh- 
lenberg CoUege, must be able to 
hear about, and discuss, these im- 
portant issues that are of such 
great concern throughout the en- 
tire country. To hear someone who 
has experienced the life of the 
ghetto and aU the problems relat- 
ing to it is certainly quite mean- 
ingful. Our students must be ac- 
quainted with these problems, 
since they are the ones who wUl

Volume 88, Number 4, Thursday, October 12, 1967 Muhlenberg College, Allentown, Pa. 

Faculty committee deliberates; 
4-1-4 plan considered feasible 

Is Muhlenberg College composed of students of adequate caliber to allow successful 
operation of an Interim Program? This is probably the most significant question posed by 
the Academic Policy Committee last Friday when they discussed various aspects of the 
program as presented to them by students of the Academics Committee of Student Coun- 



College impresses 
Harlem students 



Last Friday evening approxi- 
mately 50 high school students 
from New York City arrived on 
campus. The students came to 
Muhlenberg under the sponsorship 
of two groups: the Transfiguration 
Lutheran Church in New York and 
"Harcap" or Harlem College Ad- 
missions Program, a group related 
to Columbia University and the 
Harlem Inter-faith Community 
Action Committee. 

Student cooperation among the 
women students was praised by 
the leaders of the program. A 
close relationship was established 
between the women and their 
visitors in the dorms. Hostesses for 
the weekend who acted as guides 
for the students received a great 
deal of gratitude 

The Rev. Eichom expressed the 
feeling that the program was not 
as successful in the men's dorms, 
perhaps due to a lack of organiza- 
tion or some other reason as yet to 
be evaluated. The twelve boys 
were housed in two large study 
lounges in Martin Luther HaU, 
rather than in individual rooms as 
in the women's dorms. 

Yet the reactions of the New 
York guests, who ranged in age 
from high school freshmen to sen- 
iors and who came from private, 
public, and 



Oi 

seemed to be very favorable. Some 
of the students who were aca- 
demically inclined conceived a 
clearer idea of coUege and their 
future, while others were able to 
ascertain that coUege was not for 
them. 

They were particularly im- 
pressed by the food, which they 
consumed in quantity, TV, the 
dorm life, campus activity, the 
game room and of course, the con- 
cert. One of the girls commented 
Friday night on arrival at the 
Union, "If I had this snack bar at 
home, I'd never go hungry." 

Some of those involved in the 
program expressed disappointment 
over the academic side of college 
Ufe that was presented. On Sat- 
urday, the students visited various 
departments to talk to coUege stu- 
dents and faculty members, but 
received course descriptions, 
whereas general comments about 
the subject matter itself might 
have interested them more. 

Several Muhlenberg students 
expressed dissatisfacUon about the 
weekend selected. Big Name 
Weekend. A more "average" 
weekend might have enabled 
guests to have time to visit with 
the students and might have aUow- 
ed them to get a more realistic 
view of college. 



cil. It is this question that must 
ultimately be answered before any 
effort is expended to initiate this 
new curriculum. 

The Interim Program, also called 
the 4-1-4 plan, is essentiaily a 
curriculum and calendar change, 
that will permit the student to en- 
gage in a unique learning exper- 
ience. This plan consists of two 
fourteen-week semesters, the first 
from September to December and 
the second from February to May 
during which students take four 
courses. In the month of January 
each student limits himself to one 
course of his choice, either depart- 
mental or interdisciplinary in na- 
ture, in his major field or in an- 
other area of interest to him, con- 
ducted on or off campus. 

From this explanation it be- 
comes evident that there are un- 
limited ways in which a student 
may spend the interim period. 
However, this period can only be 
an asset to one's education if a 



considerable amount of initiative 
and Imagination is forthcoming 
from the student. If such initia- 
tive imagination, enthusiasm and 
interest are mandatory character- 
istics of a participating student, 
can it then be denied that the cali- 
ber of students at Muhlenberg 
must be carefuUy evaluated before 
such an innovation can be further 
considered? 

Students on the Student Council 
Academics I Committee in the past 
three semesters have done exten- 
sive research regarding the estab- 
lishment of the interim program 
on other campuses. Members of 
this committee were invited to 
present a summary of this gath- 
ered information to the Academics 
Policy Committee. Discussion was 
mostly directed towards the ad- 
vantages and disadvantages of the 
program and the interim course 
possibilities.

Council considers 
haircuts,Jones,l-M 



At the October 5 meeting of the 
Student Council, a statement by 
the athletic department was re- 
leased to settle the recent debate 
on men's haircuts. While Athletic 
Director Ray Whispell encourages 
the men to shave and keep hair- 
cuts short, teachers cannot refuse 
to admit a student to gym class 
because of long hair or a beard. 

Also in reference to athletics, the 
council decided to let the issue of 
the new intramurals regulations 
rest until there was some concrete 
evidence of how the system was 
working. Mike Weitz pointed out 
that the point distribution under 
the new system should not differ 
drastically from that of previous 
years. 

Several meetings were announc- 
ed by various committee heads. 
All freshmen and sophomores who 
are considering the Junior Year 
Abroad Program are invited to 
meet October 26 with students who 
have already studied under this 
program. A meeting of the Class 
of '68 will take place October 16 
at 10 a.m. to discuss plans for Sen- 
ior Ball. 

Paul Gross read a statement by 
President Jensen concerning the 
LeRoi Jones assembly. Although 
President Jensen does not appre- 
ciate Jones' language or sugges- 
tions, he thinks that the students 
of Muhlenberg are mature enough 
to give a value judgment on the 
context of Jones' speech. President

The purpose of the East Asia

Dr. Thomas stated, was to enrich

Sidney Hook, Professor of Phil- 
osophy and Head of the All-Uni- 
versity Department at New York 
University, will be Muhlenberg's 
visiting scholar for the fall semes- 
ter. Called by many "one of the 
Leading philosophers of his genera- 
tion," Hook's lecture on Thursday 
night October 19 at 8:15 in the 
Garden Room will be "Challenges 
to Liberal Education In a Mass 
Society." At the Friday morning 
assembly, also to be held in the 
Garden Room, the author of The 
Hero in History will speak on "In- 
telligence and Human Rights." 

Hook, one of America's most 
liberal thinkers and proline writ- 



ers, was educated under John 
Dewey, in the traditions of 
pragmatism and Instrumentalism. 
Among his writings are The Meta- 
physics of Pragmatism, from 
Hegel to Mary, Education for Mod- 
ern Mao, and a biography of John 
Dewey. 

Besides the Guggenheim Fel- 
lowship, which he has been award- 
ed three times, Hook has also been 
the recipient of a Ford Travelling 
Fellowship. He has served as pres- 
ident of the American Philoso- 
phical Association and, in 1966, 
he was a Regents Professor at the 
University of California. 



Jensen remarks clarify speaker policy 



from pcf, 1 

be participating In the decisions 
and the proposed solutions that 
hopefully will solve this very ser- 
ious problem. The fact that 1800 
were in attendance Indicates the 
interest on the part of the students, 
as well as others. Our enrollment 
this year is about 1500. 

What was the reactions to the 
presentation by Mr. Jones? I have 
talked with many students and 
faculty members about this. The 
general reaction was, "We appre- 
ciated the opportunity of having 
this educational experience, but 
we do not believe that the solu- 
tion proposed by Mr. Jones is the 
correct one." This is of course 
greatly simplified, but it was the 
general reaction. The presenta- 
tion of Mr. Jones was discussed 
quite thoroughly in a great many 
classes, in offices, in the snack bar 
— in fact, in all areas of the col- 
lege community. The students 
have shown a great deal of matur- 
ity and responsibility in making 
an evaluation of the presentation 
by Mr. Jones, an evaluation I 
would expect. 

Some objected to the language 
used by Mr. Jones. Others felt 
that the language was necessary 
for him to express his true feeling 
about, and experiences in, the 
ghetto. I personally thought the 
language used was undesirable, 
and not necessary. It is impossible 
to determine In advance the exact 
language that will be used by any 
given speaker. 

One purpose of a college educa- 
tion is for the students to gain the 
ability to make value judgments 
in all areas of life. This should 
come through his course work, his 
interaction with other students and 
with the faculty, and in fact, 
through the total college exper- 
ience. During his college years, a 
student should be exposed to var- 
ious points of view on many sub- 
jects. Students have the oppor- 
tunity to discuss all subjects with 
fellow students, with faculty 
members, Inside and outside the 
classrooms, as weU as at 



meetings held on campus. We be- 
lieve that the conditions and the 
atmosphere at Muhlenberg Col- 
lege are such that the students will 
be able to make value judgments 
for themselves. This Is the place 
where students should have a rea- 
sonable exposure to different 
viewpoints and ideas. It is impos- 
sible to Isolate our young people 
from the Ideas and concepts being 
discussed widely across the coun- 
try, on and off college campuses. 
It is certainly preferable that these 
ideas and concepts be discussed in 
the proper atmosphere, and in con- 
text 

The students at Muhlenberg are 
the products of our homes and of 
our congregations. They are a fine 
group of young people. Their seri- 
ousness and sense of responsibility 
is shown in many different ways in 
the academic and in the extracur- 
ricular programs of the college. 
They have an intellectual curiosity 
and want to explore and evaluate 
ideas. I have a good deal of con- 
fidence that, given the opportunity, 
our students In general will make 
good value judgments in various 
aspects of their lives. This has 
been demonstrated in many cases 
on the campus of Muhlenberg Col- 
lege. 

Muhlenberg College does not 
advocate the views or thoughts of 
any particular speaker who ap- 
pears on this campus. It does not 
advocate the views of Mr. LeRoi 
Jones, any more than it advocated 
the views of Fulton Lewis III 
when he appeared on our campus 
some time ago. The main point Is 
that the college community should 
have a reasonable exposure to the 
current events relating to our so- 
ciety, and' to offer this exposure 
under conditions, and in an atmos- 
phere, conducive for the individual 
student to arrive at a proper value 
judgment for himself. It seems to 
me that the atmosphere and In- 
fluence of a Christian college com- 
munity should best be able to ex- 
ert a wholesome influence on the 
student in the process of arriving 
at value Judgments. 



Five eoUeges 

Participating professors cams 
from five Lutheran-affiliated col- 
leges: Muhlenberg; Gettysburg 
College; Writtenberg University, 
Springfield, Ohio; Augustana Col- 
lege, Rock Island, Illinois; and 
Gustavus Adolphus College, St. 
Peter, Minnesota. There were two 
faculty members from each of the 
five colleges. The Board of High- 
er Education and Church Voca- 
tions of the Lutheran Church of 
America financed the project. 

The ten professors visited Japan 
for seven weeks, Taiwan for one 
week, and Hong Kong for one 
week. Dr. Lee also visited Korea. 
Results of trip 

Presidents and deans of the five 
colleges met with the ten profes- 
sors at Wittenberg University last 
week to discuss the results of the 
project. Members of the group 
made recommendations to the ad- 
ministrators concerning the future 
location of projects, proportion of 
student and faculty for trips, 
methods for selection of students 
to participate in future trips, and 
possibilities for financial subsidy. 



The first presentation for 
the International Kaffee 
Klatseh will take place tonight 
at 8 p.m. In Ettlnger 209, 
where Karen Hamm, a sopho- 
more, will offer a program on 
Czechoslovakia. Karen spent 
the summer In Czechoslovakia, 
traveling with the "People to 
People" program and living 
with a Czech family during 
her stay in the country. She 
will show slides and lead an 
Informal discussion on her 
travels In Czechoslovakia and 
other European countries. All 



students are invited to 
this program. 



Each faculty member had an 
independent project, related to his 
field, for investigation during the 
trip. Dr. Thomas studied the 
changing employer/employee re- 
lationships in large Japanese In- 
dustrial firms. Dr. Lee gathered 
more recent Information to add to 
his doctoral thesis, "Japan-Korean 
Diplomatic Relations — 1945- 
1965." Independent projects con- 
ducted by other members of the 
group Included studies in the fields 
of art, history, geography, physics, 
and comparative religions. 

To carry out their studies, the 
professors interviewed educators 
and various church and govern- 
ment officials. Dr. Thomas com- 
mented that such trips in the fu- 
ture would enable both faculty and 
students "to concentrate on the 
kind of educational facilities that 
can only be gained In the countries 
themselves." 



Muhlenberg 
hosts Prosser 

Dr. Harrison Prosser, the gen- 
tleman who contributed money for 
the construction of both Walz and 
Prosser women's dormitories, will 
be among the fans al the Lebanon 
Valley - Muhlenberg hockey game 
this afternoon. Following the 
game, Dr. Prosser will join the 
students at the weekly served 
dinner. 

Since Prosser is the builder of 
the two more recent women's 
residence halls, his presence on 
campus at this time Is significant 
in that the College is also cele- 
brating the tenth anniversary of 
coeds at Muhlenberg. President of 
Women's Council Betsy Weller 
spoke for the Muhlenberg women, 
and the rest of the College, when 
she expressed her pleasure at be- 
ing able to entertain Dr. Prosser 
and again thank him for his con- 
tributions to Muhlenberg.

Tops fire 'room of gloom' 
despite millenial hold-up 



by Aaron 



and then there was music 

— mass Motor-City contagion in 
concert. 

Previously, a short, turgid, mid- 
dle-aged disc-jockey, reputed by 
many to be Ernie Steigler's image 
and publicity man, tried to assuage 
a hypo-militant audience annoyed 
with several Detroit city boys who 
had exceeded their "late minutes." 

But Anally those moments of an- 
ticipation and choleric were set 
aside. At 9:32, four entertainers 
immaculately attired in black 
velour and patent leather made 
their way onto a prefabricated 
stage and exploded with one of the 
most sensational acts ever set off 
at Muhlenberg. 

"Levi" Stubbs and the Tops 
created something auspiciously 
strange inside Memorial Hall that 
Saturday night. It all started way, 
way up in section C when three 
"soul brothers" «. . . reached out" 
for drummer Efrem West and the 
drive-drive psyche bom down- 
stage. Catapulting abruptly to 
their feet, they "funky-broadway- 
ed" with so much happening emo- 
tion that they came close to bring- 
ing down the west-side bleachers. 
Suddenly they were seen! Thumbs 
went up, five-finger signs flared 
everywhere, the floor shook, 
bleachers tottered, and the cork 
exploded off the seamless bottle of 
conservative apathy that had en- 
veloped Muhlenberg for so long. 

People swarmed everywhere — 
upstage, downstage, onstage, danc- 
ing in the aisles and atop one an- 
other. Levi "slipper skin" with a 
fast-closing crowd that was mes- 
merized, infatuated, and drunk 



Paige concert 
draws praises 

by Donald Peek 

Last Wednesday evening, Nor- 
man Paige of the New York Opera 
Company, the first of Muhlen- 
berg's Affiliate Artists, proved 
himself a welcome and exciting 
addition to the College's cultural 
programs for this year. The re- 
cital, which he gave in the visually 
woebegone Science Auditorium in 
lieu of the accoustically wretched 
Garden Room, left a large and di- 
versified audience highly enthusi- 
astic in praise of this young tenor. 

The program Paige presented 
was well-chosen, and showed his 
voice to advantage in a variety of 
periods of song — the classical 
Italian, German Lieder, oratorio, 
opera, and the American folk song. 
Paige met the various require- 
ments of each group with con- 
siderable success. 

The Italian group was rather 
slow starting, and the first two 
selections, "Che Fiero Costume," 
and "Come Raggio di Sol," were 
both marred by uninteresting 
tempi, and a slight straining for the 
top note*. By the time of the third 
song, however, Paige had warmed 
up both vocally and dramatically, 
and the piece, Gluck's "O Del Mio 
Dolce Ardor," was a real show- 
piece for the tenor's impressively 
well-controlled meazza voce, full- 
bodied forte, and barely audible 
pianissimo. The last song, "Danza, 
Danza Fanciulla," was performed 
with gusto, and won a loud round 
of applause from the audience. 
Paige's acting abilities brought 
i amount of drama to 



with the Motown 



The other tured that John Blend truly has as 



Tops kept a flawless dance routine 
going so well that it seemed like 
this mass contagion would never 
cease. Yet, unhappily for a great 
man, it did. 

Backstage, the Four Tops exhi- 
bited the same affable, light-heart- 
ed personalities they projected in 
concert. Levi spoke almost entire- 
ly for his "boys." The perfor- 
mance was half over now, and his 
silky, yellow chemise, open at the 
top, revealed a shiny Saint Chris- 
topher metal with the name "Levi" 
engraved on the back. He said he 
was sorry to see the Supremes 
"split the scene, man," but the 
girls would still "press a disc or 
two once in a while." I asked him 
what he thought about the reac- 
tion he was getting out there, and 
Levi just shook his head, puzzled- 
like, and said "Man, we can't un- 
derstand what took'm so long . . ." 

Indeed, the Four Tops made a 
point or two last Saturday night 
Because of them, many conjee - 



much talent off the gridiron as on. 
But, more seriously, the Tops 
proved themselves to be smooth, 
professional entertainers. Their 
act was a success and the audience 
attested to it. They came to en- 
tertain, and, in this case, for any- 
one to criticize some of Stubbs' 
inaudible lyrics and monologues 
is both unfair and irrelevent. They 
showed us that despite the sudden 
departure of Motor City's Cinder- 
ella girls — Mary, Florence and 
Diane, Motown is still "on top." 

Despite Gracie Slick and her 
frequent "little white pill mortar 
barrages," the field tactics of the 
illusive Sergeant Pepper and even 
the ominous weight of Cass Elliot, 
the Four Tops represent the last 
bastion of Motown. 

They do distinguish themselves 
as the bulwark of a musical insti- 
tution that has seen fatter and 
better days. Without them, Mo- 
town's now fading star might have 
fallen a long time ago. 



Nature of laughter 
key to Vos book 



by Barbara Dunenkamp 



"In case you're wondering, this 
is really a serious book written 
unseriously about the unserious 
treated seriously." So Nelvin Vos 
describes his new book. For God's 
Sake Laugh!, in the opening sen- 
tence of his introduction. 

How does Dr. Vos himself feel 
that he in some way accomplishes 
his objectives? The last thing he 
would like to be said about his 
second published volume (which is 
only 75 pages long) is that it is 
definitive. He maintains that he 
writes suggestively. He is "more 
interested in seeing a synthesis 
than in making distinctions," and 
notes that his method in For God's 
Sake Laugh endeavors to do this. 

There are, however, limitations 
when one is writing about laugh- 
ter, and Vos noted that only a 
small number of published works 
have tried to deal with the subject. 
"Laughter, like anything else im- 
portant, can't be put in a box; 
therefore, not in a book either." 



Muhlenberg's past pictorially shown 
latest Student Union art exhibit 



in 



by Lois West 

"Muhlenberg's Younger Years," 
the new art exhibit presently dis- 
played in the Union is part of the 
centennial celebration at Muhlen- 
berg. 

"Muhlenberg's Younger Years" 
holds something for everyone. For 
those people who are traditionally- 
minded, there are portraits of the 
Muhlenberg family in the section 
titled "The Muhlenberg Name." 
Henry Melchior Muhlenberg Is the 
patriarch of the Lutheran Church 
in America. He had three sons, 
all of whom were clergymen, 

Peter Muhlenberg is well-known 
by students from his statue in 
front of the library. He is the most 
famous of the sons, due to his dra- 
matic speech to his Virginia con- 
gregation. "There is a time for all 
things. A time to preach and a 
time to pray. But there is also a 
time to fight, and that time has 
now come." After this speech, he 
cast off his clerical robe and re- 
vealed the military uniform he was 
wearing. This scene is pictured in 
a photograph of the 1848-1948 
Centennial series, celebrating the 
founding of the Allentown Semi- 
nary Academy. 

Frederick Augustus Conrad 
Muhlenberg was a member of the 
Continental Congress and the first 
speaker of the House of Repre- 
sentatives. Gotthilf Muhlenberg is 
best known as an educator and a 
scientist, and was the first presi- 
dent of Franklin College, now 
Franklin and Marshall College. 
There is also a portrait photograph 
of Frederick Muhlenberg, the 
great grandson of Henry Melchior 
Muhlenberg and first president of 
Muhlenberg College. 

The pictures of alumni and past 
faculty hold the most interest for 
those whose relatives attended 
Muhlenberg. Some familiar names 
appear In the pictures, such as Et- 
tinger, Trexler, Kistler, and Haas. 
Possibly the most interesting 
photographs of people are those of 
the athletic teams. Notice the 
football team of 1899. The players 
have long hair parted down the 
center, and there is even a beard- 
ed member! This is a far cry from 
the short hair (preferably crew 
cuts) and shaven faces of our pres- 
ent athletes. 

For those who have an archi- 
tectural inclination, there are 
many pictures of past and present 



edifices. The pictures of the form- 
er main campus offer a contrast to 
Muhlenberg today. The main cam- 
pus was very sunny and barren in 
comparison with the large, shady 
trees we presently enjoy. The sci- 
ence building, library, Ettinger 
building, and Berks (i.e. East) 
Hall look much like they do now. 
The main exception is that the li- 
brary has the clock now instead 
of the Ettinger Building, and the 
tops of the towers on Berks Hall 
are gone today. Brown Hall has 
no balcony, since this was added 
only after the arrival of co-educa- 



tion in 1957. The greatest contrast 
is between the old Student Union 
and our modern J. Conrad Seegers 
Union. 

From observation, the most pop- 
ular series of photographs is that 
of the 1947 "Ad" Building fire. 
Justification for the popularity of 
these photographs stems either 
from the dramatic and awful as- 
pects of a fire. 

The exhibit was prepared by the 
Union Board Art Committee. All 
photographs were donated by the 
Alumni Ofilce, Publicity Office, li- 
brary, science building, or faculty. 



And Dr. Vos then "hovers around 
it, swoops into it, and peeks into 
it," but one cannot get into it be- 
cause of the nature of laughter — 
"it is too close to our humanity." 




NELVIN VOS author of For 

God's Sake Laugh. 

The author suggests that For 
God's Sake Laugh should be read 
like a joke book — a little bit at 
a time. 

A talented and prolific writer, 
Nelvin Vos is now working on his 
third book, Versions of the Absurd, 
which will deal with the theater 
of the absurd, concentrating on 
Ionesco and Albee. Now in its final 
stages, the book should be finished 
within a month. 

His first work was Drama of 
Comedy: Victim and Victor. Auto- 
graphed copies of For God's Sake 
Laugh are now on sale in the 
bookstore.

Comment 



Protective mother . . . 

There is another side to the "in loco parentis" conflict of 
which the student is not always aware. In acting as educator 
and mother, the alma mater accords a certain amount of 
protection to students. The college, acting as parent, is usually 
much more lenient in dealing with illegal activities by stu- 
dents than the law would be. Penalties for underaged drink- 
ing are treated much less severely by the college (a few weeks 
of social probation) than the law and police would treat such 
an offense. The most harsh penalty the alma mater doles out 
in almost any case is to throw the student out of the family. 
By making a clear cut with the traditional "in loco parentis" 
students would lose this somewhat dubious protection that 
the college affords its children. This protection seems to be 
the benefit for putting up with the parent-like rules the alma 
mater places on the student. 

By eliminating "in loco parentis" the buffer between the 
law and the student would be broken down. Strangely 
enough, the student would be forced to "be under the full 
force of the law and its enforcement agencies just like other 
people on the outside of the college family. 

In acting as a parent, the college often finds itself in 
untenable positions, such as protecting narcotics users from 
police action. In addition, the college must act as parent to 
a large number of students with widely differing backgrounds. 
At a time when the role of the parent is nebulous in American 
family life, the college is hard pressed to find equitable stan- 
dards for students. Student protest against numerous arbi- 
trary rules (curfews, dress regulations, haircuts) are the 
results of the college's inability to act as mother to this 
unwieldy family in a significant manner. Can the college 
actually instill in the student a sense of maturity by setting 
up this artificial and often unworkable system? 

Ending the "in loco parentis" tradition would force stu- 
dents to assume their existential responsibility for their ac- 
tion. However, it is much more comfortable to deal with the 
alma mater than the harsh reality of the law, which can be 
more oppressive than the college. However, should the college 
student get preferable treatment in society; or, more to the 
point, does he want and expect it? 



Speaker policy . . . 

Why does College President Erling Jensen issue a policy 
statement after every controversial speaker appears on cam- 
pus, as in the case of Allen Ginsberg and now LeRoi Jones, 
and not before the academic year begins? 

When this statement is handed down after each public 
uproar, it appears as if Muhlenberg is trying to make amends 
with the irate public, is trying to make excuses like a naughty 
child. If a general policy were presented in statement form 
prior to the beginning of each year's visiting speaker program, 
reminding people of the inherent rights of freedom to speak 
and freedom to listen, rights which extend to beat poets and 
angry Negroes, there would be no need to answer the criticism 
which floods the school. That criticism would be recognized 
merely as the practice of the right to dissent. 

Of course, when alluding to a controversial speaker, the 
term controversial refers, in the case of Muhlenberg, not to 
the issue behind the verbal presentation, but to the mode of 
speech employed by the personality to convey his ideas to 
the audience. The fact that Dr. Jensen writes a public state- 
ment in defense of the students' right to hear such "vile 
language." is somewhat superfluous in a country which guar- 
antees freedom of speech.

From School 

It is sometimes worthwhile to flee from Muhlenberg and wander around anonymously; 
wandering does wonders for a perspective. I went to Manhattan and I think only Holden 
Caufield would have recognized me. 

I took a bus from Irvington, New Jersey to the Port Authority Building in New York. 
Skirting the city of Newark, I looked out the windows and remembered that a short while 
ago chaos reigned and I could have been in the middle of a riot. Those people walking past 
the bus probably were rioters. It's eerie. 

From the Port Authority I walked uptown along 8th Avenue with the intention of 
visiting the New York Coliseum. For' those poor souls who don't know much about the 
city the Port Authority Building is on 40th Street and 8th Avenue; the Coliseum is on 59th 
Street and 8th Avenue. In between 40th and 59th Streets, along 8th Avenue, is a world 
that few of us see. The majority of stores are small, honky-tonk bars and dives. This area 
is half way between the Bowery and Harlem and you don't have to know anything about 
New York to realize that. Drunks and derelicts are the only people there; you will not 
find the man who reads Playboy on 50th Street. There was a person sprawled out, dead 
drunk, in the middle of the street. I walked around him. 

The Cohseum is an exciting place to visit because you can see almost anything there. 
No show was in progress but one would open in a few days and the necessary displays 
and exhibits were being installed. Although the main doors were locked, I walked through 
an open side door, near the parking lot. Inside I saw a ferocious argument between a 
worker and a derelict who had been sleeping in the bathroom. Finally, the worker ordered 
the drunk out; the drifter feebly mumbled an incoherent excuse, and was quickly evicted. 
Forcefully. 

I talked my way past a guard and was soon watching the workers unload the exhibits. 
The intricacies of unloading or loading are worthy of an advanced seminar here. A man 
from one union has jurisdiction of the crates on the truck, but he can't and I mean can't, 
touch a crate on the floor because that is another man's, another union's, jurisdiction. This 
is a description, not a judgment; these people earn their money that way and I am not 
begrudging them their wages. There are four to five separate unions involved and a sim- 
ple operation is accomplished as if it were an Apollo space launch. 

Psychology I couldn't compare to listening to the workers talk. Their concerns, their 
thoughts, their desires are so totally removed from ours that I wonder about our education. 

This was not an exercise in creative writing. It's true. And it happens every day. 



In loco parentis' struggle rages 
as students sever 'tie that binds' 



by Boaemarie Moretz 

Last week a special commission 
at Cornell University recommend- 
ed that the university relinquish 
its role as buffer between students 
and police authorities, and in es- 
sence, advocated an abandonment 
of the controversial "in loco paren- 
tis" clause. 

According to College Press Ser- 
vice, the Cornell commission 
recommended that the University 
"restrict its disciplinary authority 
over students solely to acts of mis- 
conduct damaging to its (the uni- 
versity's) educational objectives." 

Marijuana users, particularly, it 
was noted, were apprehended by 
local law enforcement authorities 
with the aid of the university. 



"This means that a student who 
gets arrested for being drunk 
downtown won't have his case 
turned over to the university," ex- 
plained David Radin, editor of the 
Cornell Daily Sun. "He'll have to 
go to court. It ends the privileged 
position of students." 

The commission itself was set up 
last spring after student unrest re- 
garding administration policy. 
"The administration's aid to law 
authorities included allowing one 
state agent to pose as a student in 
order to investigate marijuana use 
on campus, and turning over 
names of students suspected of 
marijuana use to local authorities." 

The "in loco parentis" clause has 
had effects on other campuses as 




(7 



well. The student council of the 
University of Michigan recently 
declared itself independent of the 
administration and now operates 
on its own funds. The students, as 
the New York Times reported, are 
now "responsible for enforcing the 
rules, a vital factor in developing 
maturity." 

Last spring the Lehigh Univer- 
sity Brown and White noted that 
"parental control belongs with 
parents . . . although it is certainly 
necessary for the university to 
protect its own interests and repu- 
tation, its responsibility does not 
extend to promulgating and en- 
forcing a strict moral code which 
it claims is for the students' own 

The "Big Brother" aspects of 
the once kind and protective Alma 
in such cases, would be 
along with "In loco 
parentis." "The 
shown their good faith," 
Brown and White, "it is time for 
the university to show its." 



Letter To The Editor 

To the editor, 

Allentown, Pennsylvania Is my 
hometown. Contrary to the opin- 
ion of many students at Muhlen- 
berg CoUege I believe that this 
city, in most respects. Is an "Ail- 
American" City. I believe Allen- 
town and surrounding communi- 
ties have a lot to offer In the way 
of educational, cultural, and so- 
cial resources which many towns 
and communities from which 
Muhlenberg students come do not 
have. I am proud of this convic- 
tion. 

Before judging the people of Al- 
lentown or any community, stu- 
dents should consider every aspect 
of life in that community. I am 
not Judging-. I have lived in this 
area for twenty-one years, yet I 
question my position to render 
judgment. 

Recently, as In times past, Muh- 
lenberg students have said that the 
Allentown community is an ultra-

put another game in the win col- 
umn. Upsala was the victim of the 
second 7-0 performance our girls 
have given this year. 

Several factors contributed to 
what Miss Jean Hecht described 
as a "slow" game. The field at East 
Orange was rocky and quite dry. 
The temperature that day (October 
5) was in the eighties. Although 
Upsala has improved since last 
year, the improvement was not 



enough for them to defeat Muhlen- 
berg. 

The highly touted freshman 
class has upheld its Image on the 
hockey field. Freshmen Sally Bar- 
bour (center forward) and Sarah 
Schaffner contributed one and two 
goals, respectively, to give Berg a 
half-time edge of 3-0. Each of 
them scored again in the second 
half. Charlotte Greer scored her 
second goal of the season from the 
center-halfback position, and Sue 
Strimel pushed one into the cage 
when she substituted for Sally 
Barbour. 



Albright chaplain to speak 
at service here Wednesday 



The Rev. William R. Marlow, 
chaplain of Albright College, 
Reading, will be the speaker at the 
Matins service, Wednesday at 10 
a.m. in the chapel. The Rev. Mar- 
low, a native of Baltimore, Mary- 
land, served in the United States 
Air Force during World War II 
before graduating in 1949 from Al- 
bright College. He next served for 
three years in India under the 
Board of Missions of the Methodist 
Church. 

Graduating in 1956 from the 
Yale Divinity School, the Rev. 
Marlow spent the following three 
years as pastor of a rural parish 
before taking his present post at 
Albright College in 1959. The 
Reverend also served as prison 
chaplain at Lewisburg Federal 
Penitentiary during the summer of 
1960. 




Faculty considers 4-1-4 



from pagr I 

Among the advantages mention- 
ed was the fact that the interim 
program allows students to explore 
intensely varied fields of interest 
within or outside their major 
fields. It encourages creativity and 
independent study. Thus a greater 
responsibility is placed upon stu- 
dents for at least a portion of their 
education. 

Disadvantages were also consid- 
ered. It was of great concern to 
faculty members that the interim 
period would reduce the number 
of electives, especially for science 
majors, during the four years. It 
was also feared that if a student 
were to reduce the number of 
courses taken in a semester, re- 
search would too frequently be 
eliminate*!, a uura major oojec- 
tion that arose was the possibility 
that interim courses, being intense 
studies in a particular field, would 
necessarily be limited in scope and 
would therefore not contribute to 
a liberal arts education. 

Since the extent of necessary 
alterations is so vast one can only 
anticipate obstacles equally as 
vast. I therefore feel that those 
people whose responsibility it is to 
give this program fair considera- 
tion can only do so by weighing 
the disadvantages in relation to the 
advantages. It is true that disad 1 - 
vantages alone might make the 
program appear untenable but it 
is also possible that advantages far 
excede unfavorable aspects. And 
It Is the responsibility of every 
member of Muhlenberg to become 
acquainted with the program since 
the energy needed for its estab- 
lishment can only be generated by 
an academic community where a 
minimum of ninety percent of its 



members are enthusiastic about 
the innovation appeal to the stu- 
dents to exhibit an interest in the 
Interim Program that will con- 
vince faculty and administration 
we are capable of the responsibil- 
ity the program consigns to the 
individual. We can be realistic in 
our approach to the program, and, 
at the same time optimistic. 



Mules' home opener Saturday 

OPPONENT: Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen, Annville, Pa. 
HEAD COACH: William D. McHenry, seventh year. His record 
at Lebanon Valley is 26-20. 

1966 RECORD: 2-6, including a 20-12 victory over Muhlenberg. 

1967 RECORD: 1-1, winning over Drexel, 18-16, and losing 
to Juniata, 24-8. 

CO-CAPTAINS: John Fasnacht and Pete Glrafla. 

OFFENSE: Lebanon Valley lost its big ground gainer in John 
Fasnacht. Fasnacht had gained 134 yards against Drexel 
before fracturing his ankle in the fourth quarter. He gained 
over 1,000 yards in his first three years. With Fasnacht 
out, LV's offense is hurting. It must now rely on the passing 
of quarterback Bruce Decker. He has improved a great 
deal over last year, averaging 50% of his passes completed 
thus far this season. On a given afternoon, he can be hard 
to stop. His principal targets will be ends Dennis Tulli 
and Gary Teter, a freshman. Takl BoboUs is a former 
flanker converted to halfback, and may also have passes 
thrown his way. Terry Light will fill in for Fasnacht. Light 
is small and shifty with excellent speed. Tony DeMarco 
will be the fullback. On the line will be Ton! Sxirsho and 
Pete Glrafla as tackles, Tom Falato and Rich Basta as guards, 
and Rick Snell as center. 

DEFENSE: Lebanon Valley's interior line is not especially large, 
but they compensate for this with speed and quick, tough 
action. Working out of a 5-2 defense will be Carl Woehrle 
and George Morse as ends, Pete Giraffa and Steve Branden- 
berg as tackles, and Kevin Kane as middle guard. The 
linebackers will be Jerry Beardsley and Jack Howie. In 
the defensive backfield will be Gene SehafTer and Joe Torre 
as cornerbacks, with Gary Gunther and Greg Scott as 
safeties. 

OUTLOOK: The Mules still haven't put together two consecu- 
tively good halves in a game. Their offense has failed to 
jell when needed, and last week the defense was weak. 
But that aU might change this week. The injury to Fasnacht 
is a tough blow to the Dutchmen. With the running attack 
definitely weakened, Decher will have to rely on passing 
and hope for a good day. The Mules defensive backfield 
is going to have to stop LV's passing in order to insure 
Muhlenberg's first 1967 victory.

Harriers lose 
first matches 

The Mules' cross-country log 
took another drop downward last 
week when they lost to Elizabeth- 
town and Lehigh. Stiff competi- 
tion, injuries to key players and 
a complete lack of fan support 
have been determining factors in 
each of the four losses so far. At 
Friday's meet, the Mules were able 
to field only four runners against 
Lehigh, one of the strongest teams 
in the conference. 

Against Elizabethtown last Wed- 
nesday the Mules dropped a 15-45 
contest. Ralph Miller took indi- 
vidual honors for Elizabethtown 
with an excellent time of 26:39. 
Doug Henry led the Mule runners 
with a time of 30:46, good for 
seventh place. Right behind Henry 
was Ralph Grimes in 31:03, and 
Glenn Seifert in 33:09. 

Against Lehigh last Friday, 
Ralph Grimes led the Mules with 
a time of 32:49, good for only sev- 
enth place. Doug Henry finished 
ninth in 33:21. However, Bill Suc- 
cor and Steve Haas of Lehigh tore 
the home course apart with times 
of 29:08 and 29:32, respectively. As 
five runners are needed by each 
team to constitute an official meet 
there was no score in this meet. 

With four of their roughest op- 
ponents out of the way, the Mules 
season looks brighter. In addition, 
the Mules' ace, Tom Miller, is sup- 
posed to be in top shape for all 
the remaining meets. 



Letter To The Editor 



from pagt 4 

conservative one. LeRoi Jones' 
appearance on this campus several 
weeks ago, so they said, brought 
this conservatism to its climax. 
Newspaper editorials, radio com- 
mentary, and private and public 
discussions concerning this situa- 
tion seemed to verify the fact that 
the Muhlenberg students were 
partially correct in their judg- 
ments. 

But let us now note that at least 
one Allentonian is not conervative 
in his views towards this partic- 
ular incident The President of 
Muhlenberg CoUege has probably 
come under many cross pressures 
because of this incident. Yet, In

the second group of songs, the 
Schubert Lleder, and there seemed 
to be a very direct communication 
between the singer and the au- 
dience. Of special note were the 
spirited "Der Musensohn," and the 
sensitively handled "Der Neugier- 
ige." The last selection, "Unge- 
duld," was another rousing num- 
ber, sung with drive and ringing 
high notes. 

In the next group, the difficult 
Bach aria, "Seht Was die Llbe 
Tut," was fairly well done — a 
dramatics recitative, and tortuous- 
ly long runs which showed off 
Paige's formidable breath control. 
Handel's "Every Valley Shall Be 
Exalted," from the Messiah, was 
beautifully performed; the rou- 
lades were smoothly executed, and 
the tone quality was even from 
the bottom to the top of the tenor's 
range. 

As for the aria from La Boheme, 
well, what can be said? To end 
the piece with a falsetto pianissimo 
after the ringing fortissimo of the 
climax on a high C, was truly a 
stunning achievement. The "Ser- 
enade" from PagUaect was sung 
with the expected humor and lyric 



quality, and was quite delightful. 

The last group, American folk 
songs, "Wayfarin" Stranger," 
"Captain Kidd," and "Billy Boy," 
were all well done, making this 
group enjoyable and easy to listen 
to, and to watch — for Paige's act- 
ing ability and his marvelsously 
relaxed stage presence commended 
the eyes of the audience almost as 
much as their ears.

be a difficult job. He has to con-

is forced to sacrifice an economic

Muhlenberg has a soccer team, 
undefeated, untied, etc. They're 
4-0 with new coaches, new players, 
new desire, and oh yeah, some old 
players. They've given Muhlen- 
berg its first 4-0 male sports team 
since Schwartzwalder's last Tobac- 
co Bowl squad. And what's more, 
more and more Bergers are finding 
out about these battling booters 
and are going out to see if they 
are for real. Many are so pleas- 
antly surprised, that they come 
back for more, only to find stand- 
ing room only. SRO at a soccer 
game. Yes, here at Muhlenberg. 
No kidding. 

The last in the current growing 
list of victims were the flower 
children from Swarthmore last 
Saturday. Coming off of last year's 
superlative season and bringing 
their national ranking with them, 
the visiting mop tops were out- 
classed from start to finish, even 
though the scoreboard gave them 
the edge, at halftime. Shelling the 
opponent's goalie for most of the 
game, the Mules powerful offense 
dominated the action. Shot after 
shot after shot, and pretty soon 
the score was 3-1 and it was all 
over. Number four. Undefeated. 
Offensive strength 
"High powered offense," "shot 
after shot" — these are the by- 
words of the Mules that have 
spelled victory for them this year. 
Using a versatile 4-3-3 alignment, 
Muhlenberg has relied heavily on 
their three middle men who must 
take on both defensive and offen- 
sive responsibilities. Ron Tuma, 
Tom Derstine, and co-captain Lee 
Krug have been so effective in 
their pivotal positions that Berg is 
able to have seven man offensive 
penetration as well as a six man 
defensive backup. Up front to 
supply the real scoring punch are 
some superlative feet and heads 
on the bodies of Ken Van Gilder, 
freshman standout Bruce Fechnay, 
Ed Gilroy, and team scoring leader 
Mike Si i unit, who is now sidelined 
for several weeks with a leg in- 
jury sustained in Saturday's vic- 
tory over Swarthmore. 

At the other end of the Meld, 
Pete Moriarty, Bob Preyss, Bill 
Appel, and Al Sheer have kept co- 
captain Anthony Rooklin's goal 
tending duties to a minimum, and 
have gotten the ball up field so 
often that the Berg booters have 
been averaging almost three times 
as many shots as their opponents. 
Touch opponents 
And who are these opponents? 
They must really be good if Muh- 
lenberg is 4-0 against them. Well, 
as a matter of fact they are pretty 
good. Muhlenberg is beating teams 
they haven't beaten in years, teams 
who always have good soccer 
teams. The victory over Lehigh 
was the first since 1956. The 
Swarthmore defeat was only the 
Garnet's second ever to a Muhlen- 
berg team. Before this year the 
Mules had never beaten F & M in 
a series that dates back to 1948. 
And the teams get tougher as the 
year get older. Moravian is 3-0-1. 
Wilkes was last year's league 
champs. Havcrford has yet to be 
on the short end of the score 
against Berg. Lafayette is a big 
college team with big college op- 
position. 

The 1967 soccer team has given 
Muhlenberg a chance to root for a 
winning team. It is a refreshing 
group of men, whose drive and 
solidarity equals the sum of their 
Individual talents. They know 
what they want, and somehow 
they seem to be getting it. See it 
for yourself. But remember, it's 
standing room only, and standing 
is the only way to watch the excit- 
ing 1967 Muhlenberg soccer team. 



PMC tops grid team 
on comeback drive 

by Pete Helwig 

Muhlenberg's highly-touted football squad spent another 
Saturday afternoon of charging at windmills last week as 
PMC Colleges put on a fantastic show of hustle, desire, and 
dirty line play to overtake the Mules, 28-24. Berg not only 
surrendered an 18-7 halftime 



bulge, but also failed in all four 
point - after - touchdown conver- 
sions. 

Gordy Bennett was perhaps the 
outstanding Berg player, tallying 
three times and coming up with

Despite an early injury to high scoring standout Mike 
Stoudt, Muhlenberg's amazing soccer team remained unde- 
feated by coming from behind to beat nationally ranked 
Swarthmore by the score of 3-1 on Saturday. 
Things really started out poorly

GORDY BENNETT sports 
across PMC coal for one of his 
three touchdowns to momen- 
tarily put the Moles ahead, 18-7. 

countless smaU but vital bursts 
from his fullback position. Randy 
Uhrich, who has performed well in 
the halfback slot in the absence 
of injured Joe DiPanni and Tom 
Saeger, led the Mules with 60 
yards in 12 carries, including a 
41 -yard gallop to set up the first 
Muhlenberg score. 

The Mules failed on their first 
conversion as Ron Henry was 
tackled on a roll-out, and trailed 
7-6. But seconds later Walt Reis- 
ner blocked a Cadet punt deep in 
enemy territory and romped into 
the end zone to put the Mules in 
front, 12-7. Henry, now com- 
mitted to the two point conversion 
after missing the first, threw the 
ball about five feet in back of his 
top receiver, split end Mark Hastle. 

The Cadets soon began a coun- 
teroffensdve, but Jim Heldecker 
pounced on a fumble at the PMC 
38 to stop them cold. Henry then 
hit Hastie for 14 yards and, three 
plays later, faked to Bennett and 
strode around left end himself for 
the touchdown. The pass into the 
end zone was wide, and the Mules 
had to settle for an 18-7 margin. 
Cadets close gap 

PMC began the second half with 
a thrust deep into Muhlenberg ter- 
ritory as reserve quarterback 
Steve Pahls drove his team quick- 
ly to the Berg 25. After complet- 
ing a crucial fourth down pass to 
Joe Mossa on the 15, Pahls left 
the game and Bill MacQueen came 
in to hit end Charlie French for 
the score. The kick was wide and 
PMC trailed, 18-13. 

Randy Uhrich and Dave Yoder 
now dropped back to take the 
kickoff for the Mules, but the ball 
skipped past Uhrich to the nine 
where he smothered it with a flock 
of Cadets in pursuit. This proved 
to be a crucial turning point as 
Berg could not move the ball and 
John Harding's punt carried only 
to the 34. 

Defensive back Paul Werrell 
momentarily saved the Mules, 
breaking up a PMC drive by pick- 
ing off a Pahls pass. But Muh- 
lenberg was stalled again as Paul 
Fischer, running the Berg offense 
with the agility of a large red fire 
hydrant, couldn't get the club off 
the 



Things were getting pretty rug- 
ged on the field as PMC was called 
for a personal foul which brought 
them back to their own 42. Sud- 
denly Pahls, seeing his receivers 
covered, ticked off 52 yards down 
the left sideline leaving many be- 
wildered Mules in his tracks. On 
the next play Pierce King shot 
through the disspirited Berg line 
for six yards and a touchdown. 
Ray Pepper's placement was good, 
and the Cadets regained the lead, 
20-18. 

Mules bounce back 

At this point the Mules were 
about ready to pack up and get 
started on Big Name weekend fes- 
tivities, but Harding boomed a 
punt off the outstreched hands of 
a PMC safety and Hastie covered 
the ball at the Cadets' 24. 

Henry was pressed back into 
service and rushed for eight yards 
before Bennett fumbled his way to 
a first down on the 14. Henry then 
ran wide and was crunched to the 
ground after making another first 
down inside the five. Then after 
faking to Bennett and 1 keeping the 
ball for no gain, he called the same 
play but gave the ball to his full- 
back who romped through a gap- 
ing hole to make it 24-20. 

The Mules couldn't mount an- 
other offensive and soon found an- 
other threat materializing on their 
own 42. Pahls passed to halfback 
Bill Deni for ten yards, and pick- 
ed up an additional 15 on a person- 
al foul. Then Pahls threw an excel- 
lent fake and found Deni on the 
left sideline for the score and the 
ball game, converting for two 
points and a 28-24 lead with about 
three minutes to go. 

Tom Saeger saw limited action 
late in the fourth quarter and 
looked fairly strong. Coach Whls- 
pell hopes he'U be at near full 
strength for the home opener with 
Lebanon Valley this 



for the Mules as the Garnet tal- 
lied in the first few minutes as 
their center forward Bob Fraser 
dribbled through Berg's last line 
of defense to score on a solo shot 
to put the visitors ahead early 1-0. 
But the worst was still to come. 

Later in the initial period this 
year's leading scorer Mike Stoudt 
was felled by an injury to his left 
leg that may sideline him for some 
time. From there on the team 
went out with the renewed spirit 
and desire that has characterized 
this year's team to "win the game 
for Mike." And that's just what 
they did. 

Berg controls game 

Controlling the game for the first 
half the Berg booters did every- 
thing but put the ball in the net. 
Finally with eleven minutes left in 
the third period Ed Gilroy headed 
in a pass from Lee Krug to tie the 
game at 1-1. Just minutes later 
the booters tallied again as Ron 
Tuma's 30" yard shot was deflected 
into the goal by Swarthmore's 
fullback, giving the Mules a 2-1 
lead that they never relinquished. 

Muhlenberg then put the game 
out of reach as Gilroy scored his 
second goal of the contest on a 
freakish sort of play. All game 
the Mules front line of Bruce 
Fechnay, Ken Van Gilder, Ken 
Rittle (subbing for Stoudt), and 
Gilroy had badgered Swarthmore's

goalie and finally it paid off. Over- 
conscious of the Berg men around 
him, the Garnet goalie continually 
took his eye off the ball, causing 
him to loose possession in the goal 
area. After several attempts to 
capitalize on this had failed, Gil- 
roy pushed through the final and 
game clinching goal with just un- 
der five minutes left in the game. 

Defense stands tight 

Outstanding for ttie victorious 
troops was goalie Anthony Rook- 
lin, who had to make but twelve 
saves all game. Helping Rooklin 
out were Berg's fine group of 
back fleldmen who kept the ball 
in Swarthmore territory for most 
of the day. These stalwards in- 
cluded Bill Appel, Pete Moriarty, 
Tom Derstine, Bob Preyss, and co- 
captain Lee Krug. In addition to 
these, the offense was led by 
Tuma, Van Gilder, Gilroy, and 
Fechnay who continually peppered 
the goal with shots and it was just 
a matter of time until they started 
to fall In. 

The victory is all the more im- 
pressive when one realizes that 
this is the same Swarthmore team 
that was nationally ranked and 
finished with a remarkable 9-1-1 
record last year. In fact this was 
only the Garnet's second defeat in 
their last thirteen games against 
Muhlenberg. 

The booters also turned in a fine 
showing at Lehigh on Wednesday, 
when they notched their third vic- 
tory, 4-2. Berg turned back the 
neighboring Engineers on two 
goals by Van Gilder, and single 
scores by Fechnay and Gilroy.

on Wednesday and then Ursinus 
at home on Saturday. Come out

Phi Kappa Tau 
of the tougher intramural squads 
last week to role their win streak 
to seven. Both SPE and PEP, 
close behind PKT, each suffered 
its first defeat. PEP lost to Phi 
Tau, 15-0, with Tom Burkholder, 
Howie Van Gilder, and Spence 
Miller doing the scoring. Then, 
ironically, SPE lost its first in a 
surprise victory for PEP, 13-12. 
Bruce Shiftman, replacing injured 
quarterback Rodge Rockower for 
PEP, threw a short pass to Alan 
Feldman and a bomb to Lou 
Orocovsky, for their two touch- 
downs. Art Feldman picked up 
the extra and game winning point. 
Len Ellis and Dave Hendricks got 
Sig Ep's two touchdowns, but they 
were not able to convert an extra 
point. 

In other games last Tuesday, 
ATO defeated the Dom's, 34-8, 
with Bob Shannon, Jack DeVries 
and Ron Lemezis scoring for ATO. 
Tim Weida got the Dom's lone 
touchdown. Sig Ep shut out the 
Fugitives, 14-0, as Ellis picked up 
a safety, and John Mancinelli and 
Hendricks scored touchdowns. 
The GDI's defeated LXA, 13-7, 
but no details are available. 

On Wednesday, October 4th, 



SPE won its fifth game by shutting 
out LXA 24-0. Mike Haleta, Hen- 
dricks and Mancinelli scored for 
Sig Ep. In one of the closest 
games of the season. Phi Tau 
edged the Fugitives, 19-18. Short 
passes to Larry Houp, and bombs 
to Charley Knutila and Ed Det- 
wiler gave the FugiUves an 18-12 
lead over PKT with less than a 
minute to go. But quick passes 
by Jack Raymore to Spence Miller 
and Bob Bair gave Phi Tau a one 
point victory. Also on Wednes- 
day the Doms beat the Rokks, 7-6, 
but again an incompleted score- 
shee was handed in. 

Last Monday, besides Phi Ep's 
victory over Sig Ep, the freshman 
Rokks and GDI's surprised the up- 
perclassmen. The Rokks edged 
Lambda Chi. 13-12, and the GDI's 
beat the Fugitives 13-7. Also, TKE 
beat the Doms 7-6. Once again, in 
these games, individual scorers 
were not reported. Finally, on 
Monday, PKT zipped ATO 25-0, 
as Raymore threw three touch- 
down passes to Jeff Schueler. 
Spence Miller accounted for a 
fourth touchdown, and Jim 
Strangfeld, who had to leave the 
game with a hip injury, added an 
point to the total. ATO

Jensen remains to fight for 'freedom' 



President Erling N. Jensen will 
not at this time resign as presi- 
dent of Muhlenberg College. This 
statement came after a week of 
confusion and speculation on the 
part of the community and the 
campus concerning stories that 
the president had resigned be- 
cause the Board of Trustees had 
threatened to pass a clearance- 
restraint motion concerning the 
the selection of campus speakers. 

President Jensen made the fol- 
lowing statement to a mass meet- 
ing of the college at 2 p.m. yester- 
day. The six minute statement 
was interrupted three times by 
spontaneous applause from the 
audience who likewise rendered a 
standing ovation for the president 
as he left the Hall. President Jen- 
sen's voice broke during his ex- 
Rally - March 

SUPPORT — The president in 
his defense of the student 
body to invite speakers to the 
campus WITHOUT clearance 
or restraint from the board, 
administration, or faculty. 

REAFFIRM — Your basic 
right to be able to invite ANY 
person of your choosing. 

CLARIFY — To the academic 
and larger community that 
Muhlenberg students REFUSE 
to have their liberties of free 
inquiry and free expression 
SUPPRESSED.

pression of gratitude for the over- 
whelming support he has received 
from the College in his stand on 
academic freedom. 

In view of what has transpired 
on the campus here at Muhlenberg 
College, in the community, and in 
the press since the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of Muhlenberg 
College on October 11, 1967, 1 have 
called this special meeting of the 
total college community for the 
purpose of clarifying the status of 
my position as President of Muh- 
lenberg College, and the status of 
the principle of responsible aca- 
demic freedom. The entire col- 
lege community has the right to 
know my position in regard to 
these two matters. 

I want to preface my remarks 
by stating again that I will not 
violate the integrity of the private 
deliberations of the Board of Trus- 
tees by commenting pubUcly on 
the actions or deliberations of the 
Board at its meeting on October 
U, 1967. 

Dr. Lester E. Fetter, the Chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees of 
Muhlenberg College, has interpret- 



ed the actions of the Board of 
Trustees, at Its October 11 meet- 
ing, to the effect that the Board 
does not have before it a resigna- 
tion from me as President of Muh- 
lenberg College. I accept this in- 
terpretation by Dr. Fetter. 

In view of this I want to make 
two statements: (1) I do not at 
this time intend to resign as Presi- 
dent of Muhlenberg College. (2) 
I will continue to work and do all 
I can to maintain a policy of re- 
sponsible academic freedom for 
Muhlenberg College. This respon- 
sibility is shared by the entire aca- 
demic community. Let me repeat 
these two statements. (1) I do not 
at this time intend to resign as 
President of Muhlenberg College. 
(2) I will continue to work and 
do all I can to maintain a policy 
of responsible academic freedom 
for Muhlenberg College. This re- 
sponsibility is shared by the en- 
tire academic community. 

There is another very important 
reason for calling this special 
meeting. I have been overwhelm- 
ed by the whole-hearted support 
I have received from the entire 



college community in the matter 
of the policy of responsible aca- 
demic freedom. I want to express 
to you my very sincere apprecia- 
tion for this genuine expression of 
concern for the college. You will 
never know what this has meant 
to me as President of Muhlenberg, 
and to me personally. 

I assure you that I will continue 
to make decisions that are in the 
best interests of Muhlenberg Col- 
lege, a liberal arts, church-related 
Institution of higher education, 
dedicated to excellence in all 
areas. 

Muhlenberg College's seventh 
president Dr. Erling Jensen had 
offered his resignation to the Col- 
lege Board of Trustees during a 
trustees meeting Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 11, which reportedly was the 
scene of heated discussion con- 
cerning the College's present 
speaker policy. In spite of re- 
quests by some board members to 
retract his verbal resignation, Jen- 
sen had set August 31, 1968 as the 
effective date of the resignation. 

From local newspaper accounts 
of the meeting, it appears that a

procedures of booking controver- 
sial speakers after the board's stu- 
dent life committee recommended 
that the college administration 
evaluate and even use restraint in 
the selection of speakers by the 
Student Council Assembly Com- 
mittee. The issue of assembly 
speakers had been brought to the 
forefront this time following the 
appearance of Negro playwright 
LeRoi Jones on September 15. As 
in the case of last year's Festival 
of the Arts guest Allen Ginsberg, 
Jones' mode of communication was 
hotly condemned not only by the 
surrounding community, but also 
by alumni of this institution. It 
was felt by these critics that by 
giving platform to such language, 
Muhlenberg was in error. (See 
weekly, September 28.) 

However, the proposed clear- 
ance-restraint motion did not come 
to a vote, and it is reported that

Scholar Hook to talk 
on education, rights 



Sidney Hook, one of America's 
leading philosophers and educat- 
ors who is Muhlenberg's Visiting 
Scholar this semester, will lecture 
at the college this Thursday and 
Friday. 

Hook, professor of philosophy 
and head of the all-university de- 
partment at New York University, 
will speak on "Challenges to Lib- 
eral Education in a Mass Society" 
on Thursday at 8: 15 p.m. The 
next morning at 10 he will dis- 
cuss "Intelligence and Human 
Rights." Both programs will be 
presented in the Garden Room. 

A graduate of the City College 
of New York, Hook received his 
M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in philos- 
ophy from Columbia University 
where he studied under John 
Dewey. 

In 1927 he joined the NYU fac- 
ulty and became a full professor 
in 1939. He has also taught at 
Columbia, Harvard University, the 
University of California and the 
New School for Social Research.

genheim Fellowships for philo- 
sophical research abroad and a 
Ford Foundation Traveling Fel- 
lowship to study Asian philosophy 
and culture. 

He is a past president of the 
American Philosophical Associa- 
tion (Eastern Division) and has 
been elected to the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences. 

A strong advocate of democracy, 
Hook is (Irmly opposed to all vari- 
eties of totalitarianism and has 
been attacked by the press in com- 
munist countries. 

Hook has written a dozen major 
works, including "The Quest for 



Being" and "The Paradoxes of 
Freedom." 

While at Muhlenberg, Hook will 
join the History of Ideas Seminar 
group for lunch. The members of 
the seminar will study Hook's 
Education and Modern Man dur- 
ing their Monday night session.

WASHINGTON (CPS) — Op- 
ponents of U. S. policy in Viet Nam 
are shifting their tactics from pro- 
tests and demonstrations to actual 
attempts to disrupt the war effort. 

The new tactics will be tested 
on October 21 when thousands of 
people will gather In Washington

Valley residents polled; 
college considered asset 



The vast majority of Lehigh 
Valley residents polled in a recent 
survey believe that Muhlenberg 
College is an "above-average to 
excellent" institution that is an 
asset to their community. 

The survey was conducted last 
spring and the results evaluated 
during the summer and early fall 
by Dr. George A. Lee, associate 
professor of sociology. He was 
assisted by 50 sociology students 
at the college. 

Nearly 65 per cent of the 425 
people polled Uve in Allentown. 
The rest reside in Emmaus, Cata- 
sauqua, Fullerton, Bethlehem, 
Quakertown and Kutztown. 

A little over 75 per cent of the 
people rated Muhlenberg either 
above average, very good or ex- 
cellent as an institution of higher 
learning. 

Nearly 90 per cent, or 379 
people, answered yes when asked 
"Do you feel Muhlenberg serves 
the community?" Twenty-nine of 
those polled had no opinion, and 
4 per cent answered negatively. 

The majority do not believe 



that Muhlenberg students are too 
liberal. In fact, less than 7 per 
cent thought so. 

The question "Should the com- 
munity have more control over 
student affairs?" brought this re- 
sponse: Sixty-six people, or 15.5 
per cent, in the sample said yes; 
75.1 per cent said no, and 9.4 per 
cent did not answer. 

Although those polled were al- 
most evenly divided on whether 
or not Dr. Timothy Leary, the LSD 
advocate, and beat poet Allen 
Ginsberg should be invited to 
speak on college campuses, 44.2 
per cent said they would permit 
their children to hear these speak- 
ers, 29.2 said they would not, and 
26.6 per cent failed to answer the 
query. 

The majority of the sample was 
between the ages of 25 and 54 and 
about evenly divided between men 
and women. Almost 19 per cent 
were college graduates and nearly 
nine per cent had attended gradu- 
ate or professional school. Forty 
per cent had high school diplomas. 



for a protest which, for some of 
them, will include an attempt to 
"sit down inside the Pentagon and 
stop it from working." 

Dave Dellinger, chairman of the 
National Mobilization to End the 
War in Viet Nam, emphasizes that 
there will be three parts to the 
demonstration. 

On October 21 there will actu- 
ally be two marches, one from the 
Lincoln Memorial and the other 
from the Washington Monument. 
The two groups will converge on 
the south parking lot of the Pen- 
tagon, where there will be a mass 
rally. 

Jerry Rubin, the full time or- 
ganizer of the demonstration, says 
if there are more than 200,000 
people, there may be two or three 
rallies. 

Dellinger says the list of speak- 
ers for the rally is not yet com- 
plete. 

According to Rubin, hippie com- 
munities from New York, San 
Francisco, and possibly Washing- 
ton will hold a religious ceremony 



Council open letter 

The Student Council, represent- 
ing the Student Body of Muhlen- 
berg College, strongly opposes the 
Faculty decision of Monday, Octo- 
ber 9 to reduce the number of 
weeks of classes from 14 to 13 
for each semester in the next two 
academic years. We also reaffirm 
our position that the Reading 
Week period of 5 week days is 
absolutely essential to oui

in which they will form a circle 
around the Pentagon to drive out 
the evil, which, according to some 
Indian religions, resides in five- 
sided structures. 

After the rally, those who wish 
to will hold a sit-in at the doors 
of the Pentagon. The object will 
be to stop people from entering 
the building. Both Dellinger and 



The Muhlenberg weekly 
will have Its own correspon- 
dent at the Washington March 
this weekend. Feature Edi- 
tor, Karin Glger, will cover 
the highlights and sidelights 
of the March. In addition, 
the weekly will also receive 
news coverage of the event 
through the facilities of the 
Collegiate 



Rubin say that anyone who wishes 
to leave the building will be wel- 
come to do so. 

Rubin says the sit-in will be 
both "symbolic and disruptive." 
The Mobilization doesn't really ex- 
pect to shut down the Pentagon, 
where as many as 10,000 people 
will be working that Saturday. 
"The Movement hasn't yet reached 
the stage where it can do that," 
says Rubin, but Dellinger adds, 
"We hope people will at least have 
to step over our bodies to get into 
the building." 

At a press conference last week 
several reporters suggested that by 
sitting in at the Pentagon the 
demonstrators will be inciting 
violence. "There is no reason to

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY

Gala events planned for Homecoming Weekend 




In the midst of a flurry of acti- 
vity. Muhlenberg is preparing for 
the invasion of the alumni this 
weekend. 

I.F.C. and the cooperating fra- 
ternities have prepared a full 
weekend, starting with the torch- 
light parade Friday night and end- 
ing Sunday morning at 2 a.m. 
when all the girls will turn back 
into pumpkins. 

A good turnout of alumni is ex- 
pected. Many of them have been 
warming up for the fun over the 
last few weekends. A surprising 



number turned up for "The Four 
Tops" and promised to return for 
Homecoming with a friend. They 
were not all members of last year's 
class, either. Some of them, in 
fact, were probably strangers to 
most of the undergraduates. 

Before the torchlight parade 
there will be a testimonial dinner 
given in honor of Professor Emeri- 
tus, Dr. James E. Swain. The 
parade promises to be a colorful 
spectacle if support — in the form 
of able-bodied torch bearers — 
shows up to help the band and the 



Karen Haefclein 



color guard. This event is often 
unsuccessful for the simple reason 
that people lack sufficient interest 
to participate. 

On Friday voting for this year's 
Homecoming Queen will take 
place. Members of the court are 
Judi Fries, Merrie Gehr, Karen 
Haefelein, Nancy Scott and Pegge 
von Kummer. Last year's queen 
was Cindy Rundlet. 

Saturday has a full agenda of 
events as well. At 10 a.m. our 
undefeated soccer team takes on 
the alumni who will be trying to 



avenge last year's 2-1 loss. The 
alumni will be operating with such 
stars of the past as Chuck Price, 
Barry Behnke, Skip Schneider, 
Tom Preston, Bucky Buchholz and 
George Gibbs. A pretty formid- 
able array — however, by noon 
we'll know whether or not they 
have stayed in shape. 

During the soccer game, the 
fraternities, the women and pos- 
sibly the faculty, will be assemb- 
bling their floats nearby in prepa- 
ration for the parade. The fresh- 



men will march with the floats. 
They will parade through the 
West End and return along Chew 
Street back to the stadium. Dur- 
ing the half-time ceremonies of 
the football game the I.F.C. float 
prize will be presented. The pa- 
rade starts at 12:30 and will be 
judged by a team of faculty mem- 
bers. 

The annual dance will take place 
Saturday night, highlighted by the 
crowning of the new queen.

by Judle Blrdsall 

(For God's Sake Laugh bv Nel- 
vin Vos, published by John Knox 
Press, Richmond, Virginia, 70 
pages.) 

Laughter is a combination of the 
heavenly and the satanic in the 
nature of man; it is "the resultant 
explosion when the gap of incon- 
gruity or contradiction is perceiv- 
ed between what is or what could 
be;" it is that unique quality that 
makes man man and wherein "he 
discovers . . . truth about himself 
and his fellows." 

Nelvin Vos, in his very witty 
thought invoking "jokebook," For 
God's Sake Laugh! analyzes the 
central problem of laughter and 
why and how men laugh. He pro- 
pounds to treat the "unserious 
seriously," and does so with re- 
markable perception into man's 
psychological, physiological and

upon laughter 
Sake Laugh! 

social motivations to laugh. 

It is a book with the not improb- 
able fusion of the funny with the 
"serious." His Screwtape II 
(thank you, Mr. Lewis), declares 
to his honorable department direc- 
tor, "One can never make light of 
the light (it cannot endure it), only 
light of the serious, the significant, 
that which all men do: love, copu- 
late, marry, worship, and die," 
(and in that order, necessarily). 

Life is filled with incongruity — 
"There is always the disparity be- 
tween reality and appearance, be- 
tween the claims and the actual 
delivery of the goods, between a 
person's idea of himself and his 
neighbor's idea of him. 

Dr. Vos, associate professor of 
English at Muhlenberg, writing 
from his Christian theological and 
literary background, necessarily 
draws references to and from the 
two fields. The short essay touches 
on everything from children's puns 
to contemporary Negro wit. It 
uses kinds of references that aren't 
usually found under the same cov- 
er. 

For God's Sake Laugh!, is a 

funny book for the simple reason 
that it makes one realize that he's 
laughing for just the reason that 
its author says he will be laughing 
— he's laughing at himself simply 
because man is so ridiculous a 
thing. The trouble is that until it 
is finished, the book doesn't let on 
that its accomplishing its end — It 
does so and then goes away. 

Dr. Vos' book is an appropriate 
sequel to his first work, The Drama 
of Comedy: Victim and Victor 
(John Knox. 1966). It reiterates 
the victim-victor theory, while 
analyzing the principle from a It 
structured scope. 

The purgative power of laugh- 
ter in and out of actual comedy is 
clarified more vividly in the recent 
book. Its essence, however is not 
found in its cathartic powers, but 
rather in its introspective value. 

Dr. Vos says, For God's Sake 
I<augh! should be read like a joke- 
book. Perhaps it should. It amus- 
es, but beware because beneath the 
subterfuge of humor is a percep- 
tive wisdom, and that's ridiculous 
only in that its really serious. 



Student Council protests 
shortening of semesters 



A major issue concerning the 
entire student body was discussed 
at the Student Council meeting 
last Thursday. The Academic Pol- 
icy Committee has considered a 
new academic calendar that would 
reduce the number of class weeks 
from 14 to 13 each semester. 

Also under consideration by the 
committee is the value of Reading 
Week and whether it should be 
continued. Council formulated the 
following statement and sent a 
copy to each member of the fac- 
ulty: 

"The Student Council, repre- 
senting the Student Body of Muh- 
lenberg College, strongly opposes 
the Faculty decision of Monday, 
October 9 to reduce the number 
of weeks of classes from 14 to 13 
for each semester in the next two 
academic years. We also re-affirm 
our position that the Reading 
Week period of five week days is 
absolutely essential to our aca- 
demic program." 

Ken Cressman, a cinematogra- 
pher from Bethlehem, discussed 
the film he will make for and 
during the Festival of the Arts. 
He plans to start shooting the pre- 
liminary footage around April 1, 
carrying into the festival itself 
with the hope of completing the 
film in time to show it at the end 
of the festival. 

Upon the film's completion, 
Council will decide if it should be 
kept exclusively for Muhlenberg's 
use or distributed nationally 
through the efforts of Cressman. 

Pete Nagel, chairman of the Big 
Name committee,, reported that 
Council will make between $2,500

Fobs to speak 
at UN day here 

Dr. Charles B. Fahs, Trexler 
Visiting Professor at Muhlenberg 
College, will be the principal 
speaker at the college's observance 
of United Nations Day Oct. 24. 

For his first public address since 
being named Trexler Visiting Pro- 
fessor, Dr. Fahs has chosen to talk 
about "The U.N. and the Far East." 

Muhlenberg's celebration of 
United Nations Day will be open 
to the public. A reception for Dr. 
Fahs will follow his address. 

Dr. Fahs, who returned to the 
United States in July after a flve- 
year tour in Japan, was Director 
of the U.S. Information Service in 
Japan during the first three years 
at the embassy. He held this post 
concurrently with that of minister 
for cultural affairs. 

During World War II he served 
with the Office of Strategic Ser- 
vices, and at one time headed the 
far east division of that organiza- 
tion's research and analysis 
branch. Later he was acting chief 
of the State Department's division 
of research for the Far East. 

Dr. Fahs, who received his B.S., 
M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from 
Northwestern University, has also 
studied at the Unlvsrsity of Ber- 
lin, Ecole Nationale des Langues 
Orientate Vivantes, and Institute 
des Hautes Etudes in Paris, Kyoto 
Imperial University, and Tokyo 
Imperial University. 

He has taught at the College of 
Chinese Studies, Peiping, and at 
Pomona College, Clafemont, Calif.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Old-fashioned good-time 
describes Parents' Day 



Perhaps it was the beer (birch) 
on tap and the peanuts; maybe the 
magic included a winning football 
game; whatever the exact recipe 
was is anyone's guess, but "Total 
Success" was the outcome of Par- 
ents' Day, fall 1967. 

Even typical Lehigh Valley 
weather did not dampen the spirits 
of the large assemblage of parents 
and students who visited Muhlen- 
berg Saturday for the well-won 
football game and the Union 
Board's lively offering, "Your 
Father's Mustache." 

Some less hardy families decid- 
ed to forego the pleasure of see- 
ing the Mules in A-C-T-I-O-N be- 
cause of the rain, but a surpris- 
ingly large number donned their 
raincoats and came to enjoy our 
14-7 victory over Lebanon Valley. 

In contrast to previous years, 
many parents remained in Allen- 
town Saturday night in order to 
attend the planned evening acti- 
vity. Costumed waiters and wait- 
resses, red and white checkered 
tablecloths, and a band that some- 
how spanned the generations set 
the mood for an old-fashioned 
good time in the Garden Room 
Saturday night. 

There were fox-trots and twists, 



Chapel visited 
by Rev. Diekman 

The Rev. Dr. Paul W. Diekman 
will be the visiting preacher Octo- 
ber 22. He will conduct the Sun- 
day morning worship service in 
the Chapel. 

Dr. Diekman's appearance dur- 
ing Homecoming weekend is ap- 
propriate, as he graduated from 
Muhlenberg College with the class 
of '29. From Muhlenberg, he went 
to Mount Airy Seminary until 
1932. In 1957 Muhlenberg College 
conferred an honorary doctor of 
law degree upon Dr. Diekman. 

Dr. Diekman, a native of Jim 
Thorpe, Pennsylvania, was form- 
erly the president of Midland Col- 
lege. He also was president of the 
Michigan Synod of the Lutheran 
Church of America and a board 
member of Wittenberg College and 
Chicago Lutheran Seminary. At 
the present time Dr. Diekman is 
the vice-president of Wagner Col- 
lege in New York. 



cha-chas and Charlestons, "making 
out" dances and polkas, and par- 
ents and students alike crowded 
the floor for each kind. 

An unusual band in both versa- 
tility and habits, the New Orlean's 
Six took only two breaks during 
the long dance that lasted nearly 
four hours. During the first inter- 
mission the Union Board provided 
a corny, but amusing silent film. 
Roger Spencer and his mother led 
an "old songs only" sing-along 
during the second break. 

Toni Szamski, Union Board 
president, and all members of the 
Board are to be congratulated for 
being instrumental in making this 
the best Parents' Day ever. 



NSA urges student power 
to determine own authority 



by Ed Schwartz 
President of 
National Student Association 

WASHINGTON (CPS) — The 
point should be clear — student 
power means not simply the ability 
to influence decisions, but the abil- 
ity to make decisions. 

The days when two students, 
hand-picked by the administration, 
could sit on a college-policy com- 
mittee for seven months, only to 
endorse a report having little to 
do with student demands, should 
end. Student power involves the 
organizing of all the students, not 
just the elite; it involves the par- 
ticipation of the students, not just 
the elite. 

The educational premise behind 



demands for student power reflects which seems appropriate, with 



the notion that people learn 
through living, through the pro- 
cess of integrating their thoughts 
with their actions, through testing 
their values against those of a 
community, through a capacity to 
act. Education which tells stu- 
dents that they must prepare to 
live tells infants that they learn 
to walk by crawling. College 
presidents who invoke legal au- 
thority to prove educational theory 
— "If you don't like it, leave; it's 
our decision to make" — assume 
that growth is the abiUty to accept 
what the past has created. Stu-

Informality keynote of Prof Bouma; 
tries to mold thought into expression 



by Barbara Dunenkamp 
Although Wuthering Heights 

and the Brontes are the dominant 
images that come to the minds of 
upperclassmen when they think of 
Dr. J. Gysbert Bouma (A.B. 
Brown University, M.A. Columbia, 
Ph.D. University of Pennsyl- 
vania), freshmen may possibly 
only imagine the comments writ- 
ten on their last unsuccessful 
freshman English theme. 

Dr. Bouma, a former Fulbright 
scholar, a member of Muhlen- 
berg's chapter of Pi Delta Epsi- 
lon, and a recipient of several re- 
search grants, enjoys instructing 
freshmen because "they're so won- 
derfully naive." He admires the 
amount of enthusiasm they show, 
and although some do encounter 
problems with their initial college 
English course. Dr. Bouma feels 
"they pick up quickly— they have 
good minds." 

The Camels-smoking professor 
notes the variety of English back- 
grounds manifested in every fresh- 
man class and how this affects 
how well or ill-prepared a student 
will be. "All are unprepared as 
far as mature expression is con- 
cerned," and "all are prepared if 
you say they can . . . spell," he 
stated. To turn "logical thinking 
into logical expression, which is 
the final goal of English 1-2, most 
are ill-prepared." 

Several methods characterize 
Dr. Bouma's way of presenting a 
subject. He maintains a classroom 



situation in which he endeavors 
to be informal in expression, and 
he would like everyone to feel this 
informality. 

Although this professor endeav- 
ors to maintain an atmosphere 




An advocate of the teacher- 
student conference, he encourages 
his freshmen (and upperclass- 
men) to come to discuss a paper 
with him, even for one mistake. 
(It may be that topic sentence!) 

In addition to freshman Eng- 
lish, Dr. Bouma is also teaching 
American Literature and 20th- 
century Poetry this semester. In 
the spring he will offer a novel 
course (his specialty). 



their efforts to intensify the rela- 
tionships between the community 
within the university. 

Let this principle apply — we 
who must obey the rule should 
make it. 

Students should make the rules 
governing dormitory hours, boy- 
girl visitation, student unions, stu- 
dent fees, clubs, newspapers, and 
the like. Faculty and administra- 
tors should advise — attempt to 
persuade, even. Yet the student 
should bear the burden of choice. 
They should demand the burden. 

Students and faculty should co- 
decide curriular policy. 

Students, faculty, and adminis- 
tration should co-decide admis- 
sions policy (they did it at Swarth- 
more), overall college policy af- 
fecting the community, even areas 
like university investments. 

Student power brings those 
changes, and in the latter cases, it 
means that the student view will 
be taken seriously — that it will 
be treated as a view, subject to ra- 
tional criticism or acceptance, not 
simply as "the student opinion 
which must be considered as the 
student opinion — i.e. the opinion 
of those lesser beings in the uni- 
versity." 

Student power brings change in 
the relationships between groups 
within the university, as well as 
change in attitudes between the 
groups of a university. It renders

which will be conducive to learn- 
ing, sometimes an "F" must be 
given on a theme. In nearly all 
cases. Dr. Bouma says failures are 
given because of the inadequacy 
of the topic sentence. 

In reference to themes, Dr. 
Bouma says that students "never, 
never write for me, but write for 
other freshmen. If you feel more 
confident, write for upperclass- 
men."

Brass quintet shines 
in dismal auditorium 



by Peter Helwig 



Muhlenberg's plush science au- 
ditorium was the scene last Fri- 
day as the New York Brass Quin- 
tet staged a very spirited one- 
hour concert before a packed 
house of card-carrying assembly 
enthusiasts. Perhaps in homage to 
the venerable building in which 
they were performing, the group 
began the concert with several 
selections from the Baroque era. 

Following a short fanfare the 
three low voices — tuba, trombone, 
and french horn — introduced Jo- 
hann Pezel's Sonata No. 22, and 
were soon joined by the top voic- 
es, consisting of the first trumpet 
echoed by a second. Unlike the 
classico-romantic sonata, this piece 
was only a single movement and 
followed no structural rules. The 
play of the two groups of instru- 
ments lent a vitality to its per- 
formance which awakened the in- 
terest of many of the slumbering 
souls in the audience. 

J. S. Bach's Contrapuntus No. 1 
from the Art of the Fugue was 
much more rich and complex in 
its contrapuntal structure. The 
opening statement was made by 
the french horn, answered by a 
trumpet, the tuba, the trombone, 
and finally the other trumpet as 
the Intensity grew. Different 
rhythmic patterns were adroitly 
blended as at least one voice al- 
ways had the moving part in this 
extremely fluid composition. The 
piece ended somewhat dramatical- 
ly as the tempo was throttled and 
a few pregnant pauses were in- 
serted in the finale. 



Trumpeter and leader Robert 
Nagel introduced the next selec- 
tion as "a curiosity," and that it 
was. Maurer's Scherzo and Lied 
is one of the very few offerings 
for brass ensemble out of the 
nineteenth century literature and 
had an entirely different Javor 



from the preceding works. The 
trumpets shared the solos in the 
sprightly Scherzo, where a quick 
tempo and a predominance of 
stoccato notes set the mood. 

Suddenly the quintet made a 
rather breathtaking jump into the 
twentieth century, where the rest 
of the hour's obligation was ful- 
filled, much to the dismay of sev- 
eral Phillistines in the throng. 

The group's first venture into 
contemporaneity was relatively 
gentle, however, filling the hall 
with the polite dissonances of I 
classicism in Collier Jones' 
Movements for Five Brass. 
Lenel piece 

Yet this was tame in comparison 
to what followed — two move- 
ments from a 12-tone work by 
Professor Ludwlg Lenel, Quintet 
for Brass. A very striking trum- 
pet solo, underscored by pungent 
chords in the other 4 instruments, 
began the Introduction and Al- 
legro. A series of stoccato notes 
employed in an accelerando, traces 
of a short motival Fugato in two 
spots, and an eerie horn solo near 
the end were among the many de- 
vices in this pithy selection. This 
was followed by the Scherzo in 
which brief statements and an- 
swers shot back and forth between 
the instruments with accented 
stoccato notes. The trio section 
was somewhat better behaved, as 
the unnerving, piercing bursts of 
sound were somewhat subdued 
for a moment. But the first melody 
returned and and went out with 
a very short, jarring finale. The 
Quintet for brass was easily the 
most demanding piece on the pro- 
gram, both for the performers and 
the listeners. 

The remainder of the program 
was rather anticlimatic, the au- 
dience opting for the rather trite 
Suite from the Montereglan Hills 
by Morley Calvert in a voice vote.

The real issue . . . 

Now that all the confusion connected with the rumored 
resignation of President Erling N. Jensen has been unraveled, 
we hope that the real issue at hand, that of academic freedom 
with respect to student selection of speakers, has not been 
buried beneath the resignation tumult. Remembering how 
the black power issue presented by LeRoi Jones was killed 
by the general public through petty bickering about the 
appropriateness of Jones' language, one cannot help drawing 
an analogy to this present situation involving the basic issue 
of academic freedom. 

It is obvious from the president's statement that he is 
keeping the main issue of speaker policy before the Board 
of Trustees. Although he acknowledges that his resignation 
is not a matter of record, Dr. Jensen emphasizes that his 
position on "the responsible exercise of academic freedom 
pertaining to the selection of visiting speakers on our campus 
IS a matter of record." We support this position of the presi- 
dent and will fight with him to maintain the freedom to 
choose guest speakers without clearance or restraint from the 
Board, administration, or faculty. 

According to a Joint Statement on Rights and Freedoms 
of Students issued this past August by fifteen national edu- 
cation associations, "Students should be allowed to invite and 
to hear any person of their own choosing ... It should be 
made clear to the academic and larger community that spon- 
sorship of guest speakers does not necessarily imply approval 
or endorsement of the views expressed either by the spon- 
soring group or the institution." This is exactly what Presi- 
dent Jensen has said in both statements which he has issued 
concerning controversial speakers. Now is the time to stop 
issuing a policy statement after every speaker. 

Muhlenberg is not alone in this battie for academic 
freedom to choose speakers. From the 1967-1968 Georgetown 
University Handbook comes the following: 

POLICY ON INVITING SPEAKERS 
Any recognized University student organization may 
invite a speaker to speak on the Campus. Although 
the Moderator or Advisor should be consulted before- 
hand, he shall not have a power of veto over the invita- 
tion ... It should be clear to the various constituencies 
of the University and the public that the use of the Uni- 
versity as a forum in no way implies approval nor 
endorsement of the views expressed by the speaker. 
We must preserve this aspect of academic freedom at 
Muhlenberg College. 



Fro: 



School 



Undoubtedly, the greatest irony of the situation surround- 
ing the resignation of President Erling N. Jensen is the fact 
that the same Board of Trustees which is so concerned about 
the Muhlenberg image has done more to drag the College 
through the mud than the alleged total effect of Allen Gins- 
berg, Timothy Leary and LeRoi Jones. If the Board is so 
worried about the unfavorable publicity the college receives 
in the wake of what is said from the speaker's podium, it is 
ironical that some members of the Board, anonymously of 
course, have violated professional integrity and unethically 
released confidential business to the mass media. These 
image-concious trustees have smeared implications of internal 
unrest across the same newspapers that have brought down 
much of the past condemnation on the college. 

No, this time it would be incorrect to blame the city 
newspapers for the degrading tone of the coverage given the 




The smooth running institutional machine called Muhlenberg had some exciting and dis- 
turbing events last weekend. Our football team played exceptionally well and beat Lebanon 
Valley after our high scoring soccer team beat Ursinus. But the really big news was the 
resignation of President Jensen in protest against encroachment on academic freedom. Our 
much maligned President — refer to last week's editorial — apparently was not as bad as 
had been thought. 

The President had allowed the Student Council to select speakers; there were no over- 
seers to be notified, no censors to be appeased. The trust, responsibility and faith that 
were shown between the President and the Student Council is laudatory. But why? Because 
we have "student power?" Because we were able to deliberately and maliciously flout 
the righteousness of others? No. Why then should we rally for academic freedom, for aca- 
demic excellence, and academic maturity? 

We are students. Although this first is sometimes overlooked we are here for an edu- 
cation and the best education requires questions and iconoclasm. Dogmas and nonsense 
won't hold up under the scrutiny of precise direct inquiry and this inquiry is one of the 
purposes of our assemblies. It is our duty, as students, to ask why. Why Vietnam? Why 
riots? Why pollution? It is obvious that the answers have not been supplied by those 
most willing to curtail academic inquiry and establish censorship. 

New ideas and new methods are put forth by the curious, the inquisitive, perhaps even 
the rude and obnoxious. But new ideas are needed and innovation for very rarely been 
expressed by the traditional people. Did you ever know of a power structure that agreed 
it was due for a change, that the time was ripe for revolution, or that was willing to give 
up its power for the benefit of others? 

If I remember correctly there was a man with a funny name who said something like 
"There is a time to pray and a time to fight, and now is the time to fight!" Today this 
rebel, this revolutionary probably would be arrested, thrown out of school, or brought be- 
fore the Student Court for not comporting himself properly. 



Morning Call assaults intelligence 
of Muhlenberg students in editorial 



by Malcolm 

Muhlenberg students "should be 
smart enough to know when some- 
one is insulting their intelligence" 
an editorial in Friday's Morning 
Call proclaimed. The editorial 
concerned speakers at Muhlenberg 
and the students' right to select 
them. The Call observed that 
"both sides are partially right" in 
the current dispute which now 
focuses on the Board of Trustees 
of the College. The paper referred 
to Muhlenberg's speaker program 
as a "Free Speech Movement." 

The Allentown papers have been 
consistently critical of speakers 
Muhlenberg has brought to Allen- 
town. The Call asserted that 
speakers such as Allen Ginsberg 
and LeRoi Jones used "obscene" 
language as purely a shock tech- 
nique because a lack of intelli- 
gence was evident in the Muhlen- 
berg audience.

Reaction to the editorial on cam- 
pus has been caustic. It has been 
noted that although the Call ques- 
tions the intelligence of Muhlen- 
berg students, it has been that very 
paper which has been most sensa- 
tional and least accurate in its cov- 
erage of Muhlenberg news. When 
Ginsberg was here, the Call man- 
aged to misspell his name in their 
editorial column. Also, two years 
ago, the Morning Call printed a 
rather sensational and mostly non- 
factual story concerning the dis- 
tribution of birth control pills to 
coeds. 

It is ironic that the newspaper 
gives Muhlenberg credit for now 
having a Free Speech Movement 
when there is not the faintest trace 
of such a movement on the cam- 
pus. Choice of speakers is made 
on the basis of the educational 
value that the speaker will have 
for the college students. Most 
modern poetry anthologies, for ex- 
ample, include the works of Gins- 
berg, and historians will be long 
examining the Black Power Move- 
ment. When the issue of free 
speech comes up, it is merely a 
by-product of the major educa- 
tional purpose. 



scene speech when it has not yet 
been established that Jones did use 
obscene language, the paper's criti- 
cism might be somewhat construc- 
tive. Perhaps in the eye of the 
Call, his speech was obscene, but 
surely their is not a legal defini- 
tion. To say that his unconven- 
tional language was only for 
"shock" purposes neatly allows the 
paper to attack Jones' arguments 
ad hominum without addressing 
the real issue of Black Power. 

In the same manner, the Call 
attacks the intelligence of the stu- 
dents of Muhlenberg in lieu of 



exploring how the College can 
keep its forum open on the contro- 
versial issues of the nation as well 
as put an end to the bitter feelings 
these speakers occasionally cause. 
Instead of helpful criticism, the 
Call slanders the Muhlenberg stu- 
dent body. 

The Call states that the speakers 
are insulting the intelligence of the 
student body. Many students 
would be much more inclined to 
believe that the call of insult has 
arisen from the city editorial page 
rather than from the speaker's col- 
lege podium. 



Catholic college defends 
right to invite speakers 



The following editorial appear- 
ed In the Catholic University o/ 
America's October 6 issue of The 
Tower: 

Georgetown University's gov- 
erning board last week gave its 



If the CaU would direct its at- 
tention to the subject at hand 
(Black Power or Student Power), 
rather than convict Jones of ob- 




student body a free hand in in- 
viting speakers to that campus. 
In effect, students at Georgetown 
will be able to hear the Kava- 
naughs, Carmichaels, Groppis and 
McLuhans at their request, and 
not at the permission of college 
administrators. 

The Student Council has for years 
sought a lecture series featuring 
outstanding, if not outspoken, in- 
tellectual figures. In May of last 
school year, the Council finally 
took steps to reestablish an AFSAB 
committee for university lectures. 

Alas, it seems that AFSAB, the 
Administration - Faculty - Students 
Advisory Board, has no adminis- 
trators, few faculties, and even 
fewer students who know that it 
exists, or existed. As for any ad- 
vice the University might give, 
petitions by the council and Dean 
Cain for financial support were 
turned down. An individual effort 
by the council was too little, too 
late.

through at our University to get

tration, typical in its administra- 
tive mishmash, eloquent in its ex-

not merely a matter of books. Its 
main thrust is directed towards 
experiencing and somehow ex-

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Death of 
'love-in' 

by Rosemarie Moretz 

"The hippies are in mourning," 

someone said. 

"Morning, afternoon, evening. 
They are always in something," 
said a square. 

"No. No. Mourning. Mourning. 
A hippie dirge has replaced the 
psychedelic sound." 

John Kifner of the New York 
Times reported Sunday that in- 
deed "Violence Pursues the Flow- 
er People." Will a funeral follow? 

"The love thing is dead; the 
flower thing is dead," retorted a 
young hippie as he bitterly re- 
proached society while sitting on 
the floor of a communal pad on 
East 11th Street. 

The tears are being shed. Tomp- 
kins Square Park — hub of East 
Village life, scene of pot smoke- 
ins, acid, rock band concerts, etc. — 
is being ruled by a new word: 
"Love," is out, temporarily; "Par- 
anoid," is in, temporarily. 

James L. (Groovy) Hutchinson 
("Groovy was just . . . groovy") 
and Linda Rae Fitzpatrick ("Fltz- 
poo") were found "naked and 
dead" ("It's not an accident that 
I have this power. Nor is it that 
you're in a situation like this." — 
Norman Mailer, 1948). Their heads 
were beaten by a brick. No, by 
someone thrashing the brick in 
their skulls. No time to think now. 
Three men have been arrested and 
police are investigating. 

Groovy was a hippie folkhero.

MCA studies 
Eastern faiths 

Is there really one absolute God 
at the center of all the world's 
religions? Why are some Wester- 
ners seeking God and themselves 
in the mysticism of Far Eastern 
religions? And, even more impor- 
tant, just what is religion? These 
and many other pertinent and fun- 
damental questions were the point 
of discussion at the MCA forum 
in the Bernheim House living room 
last Sunday evening. Assisted by 
the Rev. Arvids Ziedonis and 
Chaplain David Bremer, students 
attempted to discover the differ- 
ences and similarities between the 
major Far Eastern and Near East- 
ern religions, such as Hinduism, 
Buddhism, Shintoism, Islam, 
Christianity, and Judaism. 

The discussion was begun by 
emphasizing the "peculiarities" 
which a Westerner might note 
when he first examines the major 
Far Eastern religions. They appear 
to be pantheistic, to have a special 
kind of mysticism, not to be as 
concerned with ethics as are the 
Near Eastern religions, and to im- 
personalize God. The Islamic, 
Christian, and Judaic religions 
were then introduced by stressing 
the important place which history 
and God's actions in various his- 
toric events, man's place in the 
community, the strong ethical and 
moral codes, and the personifica- 
tion of God have in these three 
major Near Eastern religions. 
Mystical aspects 

The recent upsurge in interest 
on the part of Westerners in the 
mystical aspects of the Far Eastern 
religions was thought to be, in 
part, a reaction to the over-empha- 
sis of technology in our culture, 
which some Westerners believe 
has destroyed any mystical as- 
pects that Christianity may have 
had. It may also be due to those 
people who wish to withdraw to 
find something within themselves

the hippies, founded "crash pads," 
was a good source of cheap or free 
acid (LSD), speed (methedrine), 
and just plain pot. Fitzpoo was 
anybody's guess. She was "Any- 
body" in West Side Story. She 
lived at 537 East 13th Street. Two 
cats and God knows how many 
other hippies shared her flat, the 
walls of which were plastered 
with posters of Bob Dylan, Tim- 
othy Leary, D. H. Lawrence, and 
Allen Ginsberg. But Groovy and 
Fitzpoo are dead now. They took 
their last trip, just last week. 

The crime, Kifner reported, is, 
for the hippies tried to build love. 
Now they are in conflict — with 
themselves and with society. The 
Lower East Side has fallen with 
the hippies. They brought higher 
rents, increased panhandling and 
narcotics pushing, and a "running 
down" of the area once inhabited 
by Negroes, Puerto Ricans, and 
elderly Ukrainian, Polish, and 
Jewish families, but now invaded, 
no, pervaded by hippiedom. 

"The hippies really bug us," 
said one young Negro. 

"Everybody is very paranoid 
about the Spades (Negroes)," said 
a young Digger, a hippie sect that 
gives out free food in Tompkins 
Square Park. 

"New York is a bad scene . . . 
up tight." The hippies are lensed 
(watching out) for the Narks, "a 
sinister group whose name does 
not derive from Lewis Carroll, but 
is short for 'narcotics detective'," 
the Times explains. 

Also, "burning" is biting. "Burn- 
ing," said my interpreter, is the 
sale of inferior, highly cut, or false 
drugs. Fitzpoo used to get burned 
all the time. But she decked it 



M&D to perform 
Moliere comedy 

Mask and Dagger, one of Muh- 
lenberg's theatrical organizations, 
will present "The Imaginary In- 
valid" by Moliere under the direc- 
tion of Dr. Andrew Erskino on 
November 9, 10, and 11 in the 
Science Auditorium. Admission is 
free to all Muhlenberg students. 

In contrast with MET, which 
traditionally presents avante-garde 
contemporary productions, the 
Mask and Dagger selection will 
be in a more classical vein. The 
play, described as a "slap-stick, 
fun-type, typical Moliere comedy," 
is the story of a hypochondriac 
who attempts to marry his daugh- 
ter to a doctor in hopes of obtain- 
ing his own personal physician. 

Because of the excellent turn- 
out during auditions, the show 
promises to be "one of the best 
produced on this campus," accord- 
ing to Mask and Dagger Secretary 
Rica Blausten. Officers of the dra- 
ma society feel that the appear- 
ance of numerous prospective ac- 
tors from the freshman and soph- 
omore classes during tryouts is an 
indication that apathy in many 
areas of campus life is becoming 
obsolete. Because of their enthu- 
siastic turnout, six freshmen and 
five sophomores will make up the 
major portion of the cast. Two 
other roles will be filled by a 
junior and a senior. Lynnette 
Mende, a junior, will serve as 
assistant to the director. 

Positions are still available on 
the set and lighting crews. Help 
is also needed with make-up and 
costumes. Any interested student 
is asked to contact Glen Moyer, 
Mask and Dagger president, or to 
come to rehearsals held in the Sci- 
Auditorium. 



when it was pure. 

"It's like I've been saying all 
along," said "one feminine hip, 
"We've been living in a slum 
neighborhood." 

The dirge wiU be silenced. Mut- 
ed, the psych sound will be savor- 
ed again. The "Memorial Day 
Massacre" (police charged and 
clubbed hippies who laughed at 
a park attendant's orders to "please 
keep off the grass" at Tompkins 
Square), Groovy and Fitzpoo, and 
any other hippies who give the 
end will be buried. 

"But their memory will live 
forever. And so will hippiedom," 
said a Spade hippie. 

"Aw," said the square.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



TW.,, October 19, 1967 



Jensen, Trustees tangle 



/torn pan 3 

cerning the college policy of al- 
lowing student choice of speakers. 

Quoting anonymous sources, the 
Allentown paper noted that the 
resignation does not appear in the 
board minutes as a vote was taken 
to strike them from the record. 
According to one anonymous trus- 
tee, this action was taken because 
"people should have a chance to 
cool off." 

By the time the story of his 
resignation reached the school, 
President Jensen had gone to 
Washington, D. C. for a meeting 
of the American Council on Edu- 
cation. Upon his return to campus 
the president spoke to the press, 
Saturday "While at this meeting 
and upon my return, I learned of 
the publicity given to what is an 
internal matter of Muhlenberg 
College." Handling the situation 
with the diplomacy obviously 
lacking on the part of the board, 
Jensen continued, "I have no 
further comment at this time." 

The following day Dr. Jensen 
issued a further statement to the 
public as follows: 

"I am deeply sorry to read the 
newspaper accounts of what al- 
ledgedly transpired in the Board of 
Trustees meeting October 11. 

"I cannot and will not violate 
the integrity of the private de- 
liberations of the Board of Trus- 
tees by commenting on the ques- 
tion of my resignation. 

"I regret that the sound tradi- 
tion of privacy that should charac- 
terize the deliberations of any gov- 
erning board has been violated. 

"However, my positions on the 
responsible exercise of academic 
freedom pertaining to the selection 
of visiting speakers on our campus 
is a matter of record. I am pleased 
to share my views on this subject 
with the general public." 

This was followed by the publi- 
cation of the statement which was 
issued following the recent appear- 
ance of LeRoi Jones. (See weekly, 
October 12.) 

However, in the time between 
the announcement of the presi- 
dent's resignation and his return 



to campus from Washington sup- 
port had mounted from all factions 
backing the stand taken by Jen- 
sen on student freedom to choose 
speakers. At the Student Council 
meeting held the Thursday when 
the story broke, a resolution was 
passed strongly supporting Jensen 
in "his defense of the right of the 
student body to invite speakers 
and guests to the campus, how- 
ever radical or controversial their 
views and language might be." 
That same evening two council 
members, Matt Nathons and Alain 
Sheer, along with editor-in-chief 
of the weekly. Donna Schultz ap- 
peared on radio WAEB's Comment 
Show, at which time the students 
voiced their massive support of 
the president and answered ques- 
tions that generally were directed 
at the speaker policy at Muhlen- 
berg. 

In addition, a 350-word state- 
ment, signed by four ministers, the 
Rev. Dr. David Bremer, college 
chaplain; the Rev. Dr. Hagen 
Staack, head of the religion de- 
partment; the Rev. George Eic- 
horn, director of college church 
relations; and the Rev. William 
de Heyman, president of the Al- 
lentown Lutheran Pastoral Associ- 
ation, stated that "we support 
President Jensen in his insistence 
that responsible students ... be 
permitted to invite to the campus 
controversial speakers who may 
represent unpopular or radical 
positions, but whose appearance 
and presentation may stimulate 
thoughtful discussion . . ." This 
petition now bears the names of 
76 of the faculty's 116 members. 

A similar petition signed by 1046 
students has been at the Union 
desk, and on Saturday, Parents' 
Day, 573 of the 700 parents on 
campus signed a petition in sup- 
port of the president's academic 
freedom policy. At the dance held 
for parents in the Garden Room 
Saturday evening, the introduction 
of the president by Ellen Wolkov 
of the Union Board was followed 
by a standing ovation from stu- 
dents and parents in attendance.

Educators probe studentpower 
in decision-making capacities 



WASHINGTON (CPS) — The 
nation's leading educators are be- 
ginning to accept the idea that 
students should be actively involv- 
ed in the decisions which affect 
their education. 

But they are undecided about 
just how far this involvement 
should be extended and worried 
about its effects on such practical 
matters as relations with trustees, 
legislators, the public, and the very 
education which their institutions 
provide. 

Student involvement in aca- 
demic decision-making was a fre- 
quent topic as some 1,700 adminis- 
trators of colleges and universities 
across the country gathered here 
this week for the 50th annual 
meeting of the American Council 
on Education. 

And although most of the college 
presidents and other executives 
who participated in the program 
endorsed significant student parti- 
cipation in the governing of aca- 
demic institutions, there neverthe- 
less seemed to be an undercurrent 
fear of the student activist move- 
ment and of the cries for student 
power. 

This fear and concern about the 
future was evident from the very 



start of the conference when Dr. 
Samuel B. Gould, chancellor at the 
State University of New York, 
warned in his keynote address that 
the "power of student activism 
cannot be minimized nor can its 
potential for. creating and main- 
taining unrest be taken lightly." 

He added, "Unrest and tension 
on a campus can and should be 
dynamic factors for university 
good, but there are certain ele- 
ments of the current student 
movement which openly advocate 
such unrest as means toward total 
disruption and destruction." 

He said that some views circu- 
lated by Students for a Democratic 
Society and the National Student 
Association "reflect goals of ex- 
treme negativism and even an- 
archy which, if assiduously pur- 
sued, could make the Berkeley 
episodes seem like mere warm-up 
exercises." 

Dr. Allen Wallis, president of 
the University of Rochester, said 
in a paper prepared for the con- 
ference that the student activist 
movement has undermined the 
freedom to present controversial 
views on campus exists at few in- 
stitutions of higher learning.

Opera Workshop produces 
classic 'Marriage of Figaro' 



Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, 

the 1967 Opera Workshop per- 
formance, under the direction of 
Frederick Robinson (artistic di- 
rector) and Ludwig Lenel (choral 
director), will be presented Thurs- 
day, Friday, and Saturday, Octo- 
ber 26, 27 and 28 in the Science 
Auditorium. 

Although most of the members 
of the cast are Allentown residents 
and not Muhlenberg students, two 
individuals from campus have se- 
cured roles in the opera. Donald 
Peck, a senior, will play Bartola, 
a doctor from Seville, and Carol 
Doherty, a junior, will serve as 
Barbarina, the gardener's daugh- 
ter. In addition, 16 Muhlenberg 
students will perform as members 
of the chorus. 

The story in Figaro is an old 
one based on a custom in the 
country which stated that the 
night before the wedding of a 
young couple, the count of the 
land who contracted the marriage 
should spend the night with the 
bride-to-be. By the time of our 
story a ban had been placed on 
the custom. Figaro, a valet to the 
count, is to marry the beautiful 



Susanna, a chambermaid to the 
countess. When the count sees the 
lovely Susanna, however, he en- 
deavors to bring back the old cus- 
tom. Naturally, Figaro wishes the 
count to uphold the ban. From 
this, many other intertwining plots 
develop before the play can come 
to an end. 

Tickets for the performance may 
be purchased at the Union Desk 
at $2 for adults and $.75 for stu- 
dents.

but also the rude and breathing

allowed to shape that scope, to 
hear the voices that make life 
meaningful, and not mechanical.

irrelevant the power of factions 
outside a university who impose 
external standards on an internal 
community — trustees, alumni. 

Student power should not be 
argued on legal grounds. It is not 
a legal principle. It is an educa- 
tional principle. Students who ar- 
gue for "rights" usually fail to ex- 
plore the reasons for rights. In a 
university, a right should spring 
from a premise of education, not 
a decision of a court, although the 
two may coincide. Student power 
can suggest a critique of education. 

Most students don't want stu- 
dent power. They are too tired, 
too scared, or too acquiescent to 
fight for it. That, too, is a student 
decision. Those with potential 
power may choose to ignore it — 
even those who have decided not 
to decide have made a decision. 

Yet, abdication of responsibility, 
or transferral of authority to other 
people inhibits individual and col- 
lective growth. Students who ac- 
cept other people's decisions have 
deluted their desire to question, to 
test themselves, to become through 
being. They create walls between 
their classroom material and their 
lives, between their inner and out- 
er selves. Acquiescence is boring, 
even humiliating. Education 
should be neither. 

Student power is threatening to 
those who wield power now, but 
this is understandable. A student 
should threaten his administrators 
outside of class, just as bright stu- 
dents threaten professors inside of 
class. Student power ultimately 
challenges everyone in the univer- 
sity — the students who must de- 
cide; the faculty and administra- 
tors who must rethink their own 
view of community relations in 
order to pei-suade. 

People who say that student po- 
wer means anarchy imply really 
that students are rabble who have 
no ability to form community and 
to adhere to decisions made by 
community. Student power is not 
the negation of rules — it is the cre- 
ation of a new process for the en- 
actment of rules.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Harriers lose 
Scranton meet 

The Muhlenberg cross country 
team continued its hard luck ways 
last week, dropping a dual meet 
to Scranton, 26-29. The contest 
saw the Mules' best effort thus far 
in the season as Doug Henry took 
individual honors for Berg with a 
school course record time of 31.23. 
Finishing fourth was co-captain 
Ralph Grimes in 32:08. Right be- 
hind Grimes was Glenn Siefert 
with a time of 32:17 and Kurt 
Zwikl finished in ninth. The clos- 
est of all meets to date, it was 
an especially tough loss for the 
Mules. 

Even though Berg has most of 
its tougher meets out of the way, 
the remainder of the season does 
not look much brighter. With the 
the elimination of Moravian, a no- 
toriously weak team, from the 
schedule, the Mules best chance of 
success is against Albright, last 
year's only victory for Berg. 

After Albright, the harriers will 
meet Lebanon Valley, Haverford, 
Ursinus, PMC, Philadelphia Tex- 
tile and Franklin and Marshall. 



"Dcr Deutsche Veretn" Is 
presenting the film version of 
Frledrich Schiller's Don Car- 
los on Wednesday. October 25, 
at 7:30 p.m. in Commons *1. 
The movie is in German, and 
a resume of the action will be 
given in English prior to the 
showing. 



Girls still 
invincible 
in hockey 

Determined to have an easier 
victory this year, the girls' hockey 
team succeeded again in pulling 
another win out of the hands of 
Lebanon Valley, 2-0. 

The effective coordination be- 
tween the forward line's passing 
and the defense's back-up was 
needed to combat the tight de- 
fense and excellent goal-tending 
of the Lebanon Valley team. 

Although Berg controlled the 
ball most of the first half, they 
just could not seem to hit the 
cage. Then, with five minutes left, 
Coralie Bloom stormed the goal, 
wound up, and drove. The ball 
zoomed in, and the score stood 1-0. 

During the second half, Berg 
continued to attack the goal and 
tire the opponent's defense so 
much that their goalie, tensely 
protecting her goal, knocked the 
ball into it. Sally Barbour, center 
forward, received credit for the 
goal. 

The freshmen were well repre- 
sented by Sarah Schaffner, Sally 
Barbour, Kathy Strimel, and Kae 
Ernst. All add strength to posi- 
tions left empty by last year's sen- 
iors. 

Coach Hecht, proud of her team, 
called it "a good win." Upcoming 
games are Philadelphia College of 
the Bible, away, and Wilkes, at 
home.

Opening lead: Jack of diamonds 
This hand is for those of you 
who worship point count and high 
card tricks without considering the 
situation. Blind power is danger- 
ous in any situation, but In the 
hand above it was most expensive. 

Taken from Ian Fleming's 
Moonraker. this old ruse and 
stacked deck trick was used to 
curb the ways of a clever cheater, 
Drax, the East above. Already 
playing for 100 pounds per trick 
plus additional sums for overall 
points. Bond suckered his hopeless 
opponent on, and with the double 
and redouble trick value jumped 
to 400 pounds and the points 
quadrupled. 

Sitting with 31 high card points 
and several "sure" tricks, Drax 
was dumb-founded with Bond's 
opening grand slam in clubs. See- 
ing no way he could miss getting 



at least one trick (for with all his 
outside honors how could Bond 
ever get to the board to finesse 
him?) Drax doubled. Confidently 
redoubling (remember, he stacked 
the deck), Bond made the lay 
down slam as follows. 

West, figuring that his oppo- 
nent was probably short in the 
majors, because of the bidding and 
his own length in those suits, led 
the high diamond in his progres- 
sion. Bond trumped on the Board 
and finessed a club, winning in his 
hand. Next he crossed to the board 
by ruffing a diamond, East's ace 
falling. When Bond finessed trump 
again, and then drew East's last 
trump, Drax saw that the end was 
near. South's queen of diamonds 
was now established, and West's 
final diamond feU under it. Bond 
now claimed the balance of his 
doubled and redoubled grand slam 
by running the remaining dia- 
monds and trump. In all North- 
South took 13 tricks with just eight 
high card points (and some favor- 
able distribution). 



PKT takes football crown; 
SPE sweeps cross-country 

The I-M football season ended last week with Phi Tau in first place with a 9-0-0 slate. 
Sig Ep, close behind all season, and ATO, with three wins in the final week, tied for 
second place 6-2-1. The GDI's, so far the strongest freshman team in quite a while, ended 
in third place 5-3-1. An all-star I-M football team will be chosen soon to face the faculty. 

Sig Ep came on strong in the cross-country meet last Thursday to take four of the first 
1 1 places. The GDI's placed sec- 



ond, and PKT took third. John 
Gehret of the GDI's finished first 
in 16:59, 15 seconds off Tim Baird's 
record last year. Fifty men turned 
out for the 2V6 mile run. 

Tennis is in the third round with 
six winners so far and two other 
matches yet to be played. The 
eight men left in the third round 
are Bob Wacks of the Rokks, 
Aaron Boxer of SPE, Bill Morton 
of ATO, Larry Hodes, Bill Nor- 
ville and Larry Wellikson of PEP, 
and Harry Proskey and Alex 
Tompa of the Doms. Individual 
matches are still being scheduled 
and played in intramural golf. 

Soccer will begin next Monday, 
with each team playing about 
three games a week. There will be 
a meeting for anyone interested 
in refereeing soccer at 7:30 tonight, 
Thursday, in the gym. The tenta-

IFC grid stars 

On October 26 at 4:30 p.m. one 
of the most important football 
games of our decade will take 
place on Kern Field. It will fea- 
ture the all fraternity I-M football 
squad and the powerhouse faculty 
team. The outlook is dim for the 
fraternity squad because they have 
not had the opportunity to work 
together, while the faculty team 
has come off of two victories and 
a defeat. They beat Notre Dame 
and Michigan State while losing 
to Green Bay (Bart Starr did not 
play). The faculty team features 
the strong running of MacEwan 
and Gibbs who will run through 
the gaping holes in the line opened 
by Dean Secor, Seamans, Dudding, 
and Hatch. The highly rated pass- 
ing attack is led by Dedekind, 
Stump, Baldrige, McGuire and 
others.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Thund.y, October 19, 1967 



Sportside 

by Larry WelUkaon 



It was the second coming, with 
the same leading characters and a 
cast of thousands. In the tradition 
established a year ago. Wilt Cham- 
berlain, the tallest person to eat a 
George's Super Hoagie this year, 
came to town to sign his annual 
astronomical contract- This year 
the total reached the quarter of a 
million mark, equaling the com- 
bined salaries of the rest of the 
team, and giving Chamberlain the 
highest salary in this area since 
Schwartzwalder's teams of the 
'40's. 

Wilt the Stilt seemed to be worth 
every penny of it, until he stepped 
out onto the floor on Thursday 
night. Taking almost as long to 
sign his contract as the "Four 
Tops" took in getting up here, 
Chamberlain nonetheless received 
his annual Allentown ovation. Un- 
fortunately, once on the court, he 
looked more like an extenuated 
version of LeRoi Jones than the 
bearded giant who led the 76ers to 
the world championship last year. 
Stilted Wilt 

Definitely better prepared for 
water-skiing, his off-season hobby, 
than for basketball, the Dipper 
was an easy mark on defense. His 
usually awesome height and quick 
reflexes didn't even phase rookie 
Jim Caldwell, who made six of 
seven shots in the third period 
over, under, around, and through 
Wilt. And this is all the more im- 
pressive when one realizes that 
Caldwell is a player of such ability 
and renown that, until game time, 
Chamberlain had never even heard 
of him. 

On offense, too, the damage of 
the extended holdout could be 
seen. Wilt managed only 12 points 
and 12 rebounds in three periods 
against the same New York mid- 
gets that he had overpowered just 
months ago. And no one seemed 
to offer any rebuttal when Wilt 
stated that the rest of the team 
would probably have to carry him 
for the first part of the season. 
Holdout or holdup 

The real expense of the lengthy 
absence of Chamberlain was hint- 
ed at in the Allentown contest. 
Wilt is literally the center of the 
76ers' team and, for the world 
champions, pre-season practice, 
when most teams iron out the 
kinks, will have to be held in the 
first weeks of the official season. 
This almost assures that Philadel- 
phia won't get off to anything close 
to its quick start of a year ago, 
when they left the rest of the 
league far behind by winning 18 
of their flrsH 20 games. 

This is all the more serious when 
one realizes that, besides the al- 
ways challenging Boston Celtics, 
the 76ers must be ready for the 
revamped Knicks, who have final- 
ly gotten Bill Bradley, the best 
player to come out of England in 
years, into the New York blue and 
gold. 

But in addition to the giant, the 
76ers still have Hal Greer, Chet 
Walker, Luke Jackson, Wally 
Jones, and Billy Cunningham 
(who dominated last Thursday's 
game with 30 points) back from 
last year's team, which possibly 
was the best in the history of the 
NBA. And even if it should take 
Wilt the whole season to "warm 
up," the 1967 edition of the 
team should easily re-enact last 
year's Cakewalk and win t 
championship in the playoffs. A 
quarter of a million dollars may 
seem like a lot to pay one indi- 
vidual in a team sport, but when 
such a small amount of money can 
guarantee a world championship, 
it seems but a pittance. 



Mule power crushes Bears, Dutchmen 

Gridders gain first win; 
Henry, Hastie spark team 



play was the decisive TD pass. 
The Dutchmen made one last ef- 
fort, but freshman Paul Werrel 
pilfered a Decker pass on the 
Mules 39 yard line to kill the drive. 



Late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's home football 
game, Berg was camped on the Lebanon Valley 17 yard-line 
with a fourth down and three yards to go, behind in the score 
7-6. Quarterback Ron Henry, who had been amazing in clutch 
situations all day, surveyed the Valley defense, took the snap 
from center, and faded back to 
throw. He dodged one Valley 
lineman, ducked under another, 
and threw toward the goal line. 
Mark Hastie, a glue-fingered half- 
back, went up over two defenders 
and gathered in Henry's aerial for 
the decisive touchdown in the 
Mules 14-7 victory over Lebanon 
Valley. Henry's pass to end Ted 
Dick for the two-point conversion 
climaxed one of the most exciting 
come-from-behind wins for the 
Mules in many years. 

The story in the first half was 
the stingy, tenacious Mule defense 
led by linemen Bob Van Iderstine, 
Jim Heidecker and Paul Vikner, 
linebacker Chuck Bargerstock, and 
deep backs Dave Yoder, Mike 
Harakel, Bob Loeffler, and Paul 
Werrel. Throughout most of the 
first period the Mules stifled the 
usually potent Dutchmen offense, 
but Berg could get nothing gener- 
ated offensively either. However, 
early in the second period after 
forcing Lebanon Valley to punt, 
the Mules started a drive on their 
own 26. Relying mostly on short 
spurts by Uhrich, Hastie, and 
Yoder, and a key pass from Henry 
to Bob Truet, the Mules drove 
down to the Valley 24. From there, 
Hastie ran a brilliant reverse to 
the seven, Uhrich plunged to the 
two, and Gordy Bennett rammed 
home the first score of the game. 
Lee Seras' conversion attempt was 
blocked, but the Mules took a 6-0 
lead into the dressing room at half 
time. 

Early in the third quarter, after 
an exchange of punts, the Mules 
moved down to the Dutchmen 40 
yard line. Here, disaster struck 
when Henry was rushed hard and 
forced to throw a hurried pass. 
His misguided toss was picked off 
by Valley's Joe Torre and 65 yards 
later the score was tied. Tony De- 
Marco's extra point gave Lebanon 
the lead, and it looked as if the 
Mules' troubles were just begin- 
ning. 

After the ensuing kick-off, Berg 
was forced to punt and the Dutch- 
men started another drive which 
put them at the Mule 12, with a 
fourth down and short yardage. 
Here the defense stiffened with 
Loeffler and Heidecker breaking 
through to stop quarterback Deck- 
er in his tracks, and the Mules 
took over. Henry then proceeded 
to pick apart the Dutchmen de- 
fense with passes to Truet, Uhrich, 
and Hastie, and short spurts by 
Uhrich and Gordy Bennett. How- 
ever, at the Dutchmen 20, Henry 
fumbled and Valley recovered. 

They proceeded to drive down 
to the Mules 25 and again the 
Mules looked dead. But the hard- 
hitting defense forced a fumble 
and Dave Yoder recovered. The 
Mules stormed back with a ven- 
gence, and their decisive touch- 
down drive was devastating in Its 
consistency. Bennett and Yoder 
churned out the yardage through 
the middle and Hastie swivel-hip- 
ped his way around the ends. 
Henry pinpointed Hastie twice 
with passes, and the second one 
took the Mules to the 17. The next

Muhlenberg romped to its sixth 
straight soccer victory Saturday as 
freshman Bruce Fechnay contrib- 
uted three goals and Ed Gilroy 
tallied two in a 5-0 rout of Ursinus. 
The win, before an enthusiastic 
Parents' Day crowd of about 200 
in a persistant drizzle, left the 
Mules' record unmarred and gave 
number two goalie Gordy Dunham 




HENRY TO HASTIE — Ron Henry is pursued as he fades back to 
hit Mark Hastie for winning TD in Saturday's 14-7 
Lebanon Valley. 



The Alpha Phi Omega chap-

mony In the Union tonight at 



Dickinson in Homecoming contest 

OPPONENT: Dickinson Red Devils, Carlisle, Pa. 
HEAD COACH: Wilbur Gobrect, third season. His record at 
Dickinson is 13-6-1. 

1966 RECORD: 4-3-1, including a 17-7 victory over Muhlen- 
berg. 

1967 RECORD: 2-2; wins over PMC, 15-13, and Haverford, 
34-14; losses to Swarthmore, 52-6, and Franklin and Mar- 
shall last weekend, 22-8. 

CO-CAPTAINS: Stephen Overcash and Richard Mohlere. 
OFFENSE: Coach Gobrecht considers the Dickinson team to be 
young and inexperienced group of players who are develop- 
ing more and more into a team each week. Dickinson's 
big offensive setback thus far has been their lack of speed, 
which has been the reason for a very inconsistent running 
attack. To compensate for this, Dickinson has moved John 
Person from halfback to tight end and moved a faster, shif- 
tier runner in Person's place. His name is Lon Haines, a 
freshman, who since the move has picked up 100 yards in 
just 26 rushing attempts. Haines will team with the other 
halfback, Roger Cook, to do most of the ball carrying on 
Saturday. Cook is the leading Dickinson rusher with 183 
yards in 48 attempts. Ray Colvin is the fullback. Ken Eleh- 
elberger is in his first varsity season at quarterback. He 
throws well, although not consistently well, having com- 
pleted 15 out of 21 passes against PMC and then completing 
only 16 out of 43 against F & M last week. Eichelberger, 
too, is picking up valuable experience each game and his 
throwing ability will be a definite threat Person and George 
Reynolds are good receivers. Bulwarks of an expected strong 
line will be Steve Overcash. 245 lbs., and Ron Vlcan, 210 lbs., 
the holdover tackles, and Mark Birdsall, a guard much more 
rugged than his 180 pounds might suggest. Overcash, who 
is considered one of the greatest linemen in the history of 
Dickinson football (now in its 82nd year), was an all-con- 
ference choice last year. 
DEFENSE: Dickinson sets up in a 5-2 defense, and the stalwarts 
of the offense play defense also. Overcash and Vican are the 
defensive tackles and Birdsall is the middle guard. Person 
is the left safety, but may be spelled in order to concentrate 
on offense. Rounding out the defensive line will be Alan 
Timmcke and Earl Schorpp at the ends. Greg Ross and 
Rich Mohlere arc the linebackers, with Person, Greg Abeln, 
Andy Boranoff, and Scott Sanders in the defensive backfield. 
OUTLOOK: Muhlenberg showed last week- that they can play 
a consistent football game. Of course, everyone Is wonder- 
ing whether or not they can do it again. Dickinson has a 
young, inexperienced, and inconsistent ball club. Mistakes 
have been very costly to the Red Devils. Their pass rush 
and pass defense is considered weak. If Ron Henry can hit 
his receivers with good accuracy, he should have an excel- 
lent afternoon, because he'll have plenty of time to throw. 
Dickinson is an up and coming team. They could prove a 
real match for the Mules. It should be a victory for Berg.

the shutout in his season debut. 

Fechnay, notching his second hat 
trick of the week, put the Mules 
out in front in the first quarter, 
driving an indirect kick off the left 
goal post into the net. Berg 
pressed the Bears' defense 
throughout the rest of the period, 
as veteran linemen Ed Gilroy and 
Ken Van Gilder kept the heat on 
the Ursinus goalie. 

Mules build lead 

Fullbacks Bob Preyss and Pete 
Moriarity kept Dunham out of 
trouble early in the second quarter 
as the Bears came on strong for 
a time. But several fine punts out 
of the goal area finally stopped the 
attack and Berg all but locked it 
up when Fechnay laced a penalty 
kick into the right corner of the 
goal to make it 2-0. Halfbacks Al 
Sheer and Tom Derstine were de- 
cisive in maintaining the advan- 
tage by keeping the ball on the 
Bears' side of the field until half- 
time. 

The Mules went right back to 
work after the break, as Gilroy 
continued to bait the Ursinus 
goalie and Van Gilder, Sheer, and 
Fechnay fired at the goal. The 
Bears did come roaring back brief- 
ly, but missed on a break-away 
shot that sailed over the goal. 

A relentless show of "Mule pow- 
er" continued despite the appear- 
ance of several second string play- 
ers in the Mule line-up during the 
fourth quarter. Gilroy put one 
through the goalie's hands to make 
it 3-0, and then came back a few 
seconds later to lace a dazzling 
left-foot bullet into the right corn- 
er of the goal. 

Freak goal 

Fechnay, returning after a brief 
rest, then preceded to amaze the 
crowd by lofting a short indirect 
kick over the lined-up heads of 
eight Ursinus players and past the 
goalie to make it 5-0. 

The depth and desire of the en- 
tire team was certainly visible in 
this contest, as the Mules were 
playing without the services of 
standouts Lee Krug, Mike Stoudt, 
Ron Tuma, and Tony Rooklin. 
Rooklin and Krug are expected to 
see action in Wednesday's crucial 
game at Wilkes, although Krug 
may not be at full strength for at 
least another week. 

Last Wednesday the Mules jour- 
neyed to Moravian and dealt the 
Greyhounds their first loss in 
double overtime, 3-2. Moravian 
jumped in front early, but 22 saves 
by Rooklin and Fechnay's three 
scores saved the game for Berg. 




LONE DEFENDER — Goalie 
Rooklin is last line of defense 
for soccer team which remained 
by beatini 
3-t and Ursinus, 5-0.

Pegge von Kummer reigns 
over colorful Homecoming 

Caught up by the usual big weekend spirit, Muhlenberg students initiated the 1967 
Homecoming Weekend with the annual torch procession and effigy-burning Friday night. 
Although the "parade" had little support until reaching the soccer field, the dummy 
burned with satisfying zeal. 

Reversing the usual trend, Fri- 
day night hosted the house parties, 
while Saturday was reserved for 
the Union dance. Cindy Rundlet, 
queen of 1966, reigned through the 
football game and until 11 p.m. 
Saturday night, when Pegge von 
Kummer ascended to the throne. 

Saturday's weather lent itself to 
the occasion with clear skies and 
a brisk fall breeze. Early morn- 
ing activity included the tradition- 
al Varsity-Alumni soccer game 
which was heralded by a victory 
for the school varsity. Oldsters 
returning for the showdown in- 
cluded Carl Buchholz, Chuck 
Price, Coach Lee Hill, John Good, 
and George Gibbs, who presently 
bears some battle scars from the 
encounter. 

The Homecoming football game 
with Dickinson will be remem- 
bered as one which was led by 
remarkable play by Ron Henry, 
only to be fumbled away to a 
28-21 Dickinson win on the one- 
yard line. 

However, fans were buoyed up 
by the procession of floats at half- 
time, with Alpha Tau Omega cap- 
turing the IFC trophy and Phi 
Kappa Tau taking the Student 
Body award. The Class of "71 float 
was unique in employing a mov- 
able part, a dink which lifted to 
expose the Dickinson devil smoth- 
ered beneath. 



Leitsch letter 
tells of arrest 

Richard Leitsch, president of the 
Mattachine Society and self-dub- 
bed "professional homosexual," 
has written a letter to Martha 
Schlenker, assembly chairman, ex- 
plaining the circumstances of his 
arrest which led to his inability to 
appear for an October assembly 
program. 

According to the letter, Leitsch 
noticed policemen intently observ- 
ing two gentlemen whom Leitsch 
recognized to be homosexuals. By 
informing the two homosexuals of 
the police observers, Leitsch was 
arrested on the charge of "ob- 
structing an officer from perform- 
ing his duty." 

At this time there are no plans 
to reschedule the Leitsch visit. 
However, senior John Blend has 
taped an hour interview with three 
of Leitsch's assistants and will in- 
corporate the Information into his 
report for Seminar in Applied 
Christianity, but there are no plans 
for use of this tape in an assembly. 

It might also be noted that an- 
other assembly speaker has been 
arrested. LeRoi Jones, Negro 
playwright and cause of much 
recent turmoil for the college, was 
reported to have been arrested in 
New York for receiving stolen 
goods and weapons.

Assembly variety added 
by New York composer 



David Amram, flrst N. Y. Phil- 
harmonic Composer-in-Residence, 
will appear in assembly tomorrow 
morning at 10. 

Amram was born in Philadel- 
phia on Nov. 17, 1930. He began 
to study the piano at the age of 
seven, and later, the trumpet and 
French horn. He developed an 
early interest in jazz working with 
Louis Brown, a schoolmate of 
Duke Ellington, and playing in a 
Dixieland band. At sixteen, his 
interest began to expand and he 
devoted himself to studying the 




the American production of the 
late Albert Camus' Caligula. Eli- 
ot's The Family Reunion, O'Neill's 
Great God Brown, and Ibsen's 
Peer Gynt. By this time his mo- 
tion picture credits included 
Splendor In the Grass. The Man- 
churian Candidate. The Young 
Savages, and Pull My Daisy. For 
television he had composed a bril- 
liant score for the NBC prize-win- 
ning production. Turn of the 
Screw, which starred Ingrid Berg- 
man. Recent commissions include 
music for Paddy Chayefsky's 
drama, The Passion of Joseph D; 
and for Arthur Miller's After The 
Fall; as well as an operatic setting 
for Twelfth Night; a cantata, A 
Year In Our Land, based on texts

The Washington demonstration 
started Saturday morning at the 
Lincoln Memorial, where an esti- 
mated 60,000 people gathered. 
According to Paulette Toppin, a 
Muhlenberg senior, "It was not a 
mob; it was not a crowd. It was 
a lot of people." The atmosphere 
was one of friendliness. People 
were sharing food and quietly 
talking and listening to one an- 
other. A "gentle" air was pervas- 
ive. ParUcipants included profes- 
sional people, religious leaders, 
families (including children), and 
a large number of students. All 
elements were present — hippies, 
radicals, pacifists, conservatives, 
and countless others — all united 
in feeling the war in Vietnam is 
wrong. 

Entertainers such as Peter, Paul, 
and Mary. Phil Ochs, Dick Greg- 
ory, and a member of the Chad 
Mitchell Trio performed and spoke 
at the assembly grounds at the 
Memorial. The president of Stu- 
dents for a Democratic Society 
and a rabbi who had visited North 
Vietnam also gave speeches there, 
and again in the parking lot at 



the Pentagon, the group's destina- 
tion. 

The two-mile march from D. C. 
to the Pentagon in Virginia was 
quiet. The demonstrators walked 
together, talking and occasionally 
chanting "Peace now." At the 
Pentagon the chant became "We're 
not against the soldiers, we're 
against the war." It was remark- 
able in that there were no police 
or at least very few police, either 
at the Lincoln Memorial or on the 
path to Arlington. 

Once at the Pentagon though, 
where the masses went "to con- 
front the warmakers," the scene 
changed. Here MP's and National 
Guardsmen were very obviously 
present. One participant reports, 
"It was eerie, especially at dusk,, 
to see the men with rifles on the 
roof of the Pentagon, silhouetting 
the horizon." Another states "It 
was ridiculous to see rifles and 
clubs opposing people." 

At the Pentagon, a civil disobe- 
dience display wrought violence. 
Although the majority of the 
demonstrators did not storm the 
building, several thousand did,

Mere 14 students engaged in Honors 



Seven departments of Muhlen- 
berg College are offering honors 
programs to junior and senior stu- 
dents during the 1967-68 academic 
year. 

According to the outline of the 
College Honors Program issued 
April 7, 1965, students must have

must achieve an average of 600 



composite and 620 in the major 
field in the oral 100 and written 
parts .of the Graduate Record Ex- 
amination to be graduated with

Muhlenberg's biology depart- 
ment requires that students com- 
plete the equivalent of six semes- 
ter hours of research, the equiva- 
lent of nine hours of advanced 
biology courses with honors, three 
out of nine hours in other sciences 
and six hours of honors work in 
the social sciences or humanities.

Lenel assists in establishing 
modern Pan-Lutheran hymnal 



The Inter-Lutheran Commission 
on Worship (I.L.C.W.) was insti- 
tuted in November of 1966, by and 
with proportionate representation 
from the following church bodies: 
the American Lutheran Church, 
the Lutheran Church in America, 
the Lutheran Church — Missouri 
Synod, the Evangelical Lutheran 
Church of Canada and the Synod 
of Evangelical Lutheran Churches. 

The immediate purpose of this 
organization states that it "shall 
prepare and supervise publication 
of such worship materials as the 
cooperating churches shall request 
or which upon recommendation of 
the Commission, the churches shall 
approve." However, long-range 
plans contain a vision of a new 
Pan-Lutheran Hymnal. A new 
hymnal is felt necessary despite 
the publication in 1958 of the Lu- 
theran Service Book and Hymnal, 
which is regarded by some mem- 
bers of the I.L.C.W. as a com- 
promise of the best hymns of cer- 
tain national backgrounds, espe- 
cially German, Scandanavian, Slo- 
vak and Finnish. 

The committee structure for the 
Pan -Lutheran Hymnal, which 
ideaUy will retain the "best" of 
the traditional and include the 
"best" of the contemporary music 
of the church, has been divided 
into four units, each concerned 
with a particular field: liturgical 
music, liturgical texts, hymn mu- 
sic and hymn texts. Each support- 
ing church body is represented on 
each of these nine-member com- 
mittee units by competent men in 
each field. 

The Lutheran Church in Amer- 
ica is represented by Ludwlg 
Lenel, chairman of Muhlenberg's

music department, on the commit- 
tee concerned with hymn music. 
According to Lenel, the committee 
meets two times a year and has 
been concerned mainly with in- 
vestigating compositions of mod- 
ern and contemporary composers. 
Although there is much 20th cen- 
tury music available, Lenel sug- 
gests that from these myriad re- 
sources, the committee has been 
frustrated in its attempts to And 
sufficient quantities of "good" 
modern hymns or texts. 

As was stated before, the Pan- 
Lutheran Hymnal is envisioned as 
a synthesis of the traditional and 
contemporary. No attempt is to 
be made to eliminate all material 
that is old by reason of its age or 
to admit that which is new by 
virtue of its contemporaneiousness. 
Rather, new materials are being 
sought which will be contempor- 
ary expressions of belief and wor- 
ship. 

Because of the disappointing 
quantity of "good" contemporary 
hymns and texts, it has become 
the job of the Hymn Music Com- 
mittee of the I.L.C.W. to commis- 



sion artists to write both texts and 
music as possible additions to the 
new inter-Lutheran hymnal 

Not only has the I.L.C.W. felt 
a need for good, new, modern 
hymnody, but Lenel himself has 
been a subject of a commissioning 
for new hymns by the Arts Com- 
mittee for the 450th Reformation 
Anniversary. Jan Bender of Wit- 
tenberg University, Richard Hll- 
lert of Concordia Teachers College 
and Ludwig Lenel of Muhlenberg 
were the three prominent compos- 
ers chosen to write hymns to con- 
temporary texts by Martin Franz- 
mann, Ernest Edwin Ryden and 
George Utech, respectively. 

It seems safe to assume, consid- 
ering the demands of both the 
I.L.C.W. and the special commis- 
sion for hymns by the Arts Com- 
mittee for the 450th reformation 
Anniversary, that good contem- 
porary music in the liturgical area 
is difficult to find, but also that 
Muhlenberg is fortunate in having 
as one of its faculty members, 
Lenel, obviously a respected com- 
poser and authority in the field of 
contemporary liturgical music.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Original drama planned 
for Reformation program 



Once to Every Man, the drama 
written by James R. Kaye, will 
be presented In the Chapel Tues- 
day at 4 and 8:30 p.m. The drama 
is part of the celebration of the 
100th anniversary of the naming 
of Muhlenberg College. 

Once to Ever; Man is actually 
a pageant that was commissioned 
by Muhlenberg College. James R. 
Kaye, who is a playwright, actor, 
and lyric composer, received the 
commission about six months ago. 
Kaye has worked previously as 
director of the National Council of 
Churches' television program 
"Frontiers of Faith." 

Based on the theme of the rebel 
with a cause, One* to Every 
Man portrays individuals who 
have lived sometime during the 
past 2000 years and who have up- 
held their moral convictions 
against the "establishment." The 
pageant takes its name from the 
hymn "Once to Every Man and 
Nation," and re-enacts the "mo- 
ment to decide" in the lives of 
these rebels. Kaye has researched 
their lives thoroughly and used a 
great deal of documented material 
in the play. For example, quotes 
from the trial of Huss are used 
in the dialogue of this scene. 

Music weaves throughout the 
pageant. All of the music is either 
hymns or folk tunes, with the ex- 
ception of "What is a Rebel?" 
written by Kaye and Marise A. 
Counsell, the director of the pro- 
duction. Joseph Gulka and his as- 
sistant, Ron Miller, are working 
with the music, which will be per- 
formed by a small chorus of col- 
lege students and an instrumental 
ensemble. Students, faculty, local 
citizens, and professional actors 
from New York comprise the cast 



As befits a play whose emphasis 
is on man, Once to Every Man 
is produced with simplicity. The 
pageant makes use of indication 
costuming. That is, each actor 
will wear modern clothing with 
small additions to characterize his 
role. The staging also reflects a 
simplicity that will heighten the 
importance of the man. 

Student admission is free for 
both performances, but in order 
to secure reservations, tickets must 
be obtained from the secretary in 
the Chapel. 



Students cross continents 
a/one, en masse, a la fun 



by Sherrlll Sllberllng 

"See America first," intoned the 
pseudo-baritone voice over sum- 
mertime T.V. — in that interval 
between the final commercial of 
one program and the initial com- 
mercial of the following one. 

Surely, all vacationing Berg 
students heard this heart-felt plea 
at some time or another, but, just 
as surely, quite a few from our 
ranks took to the sea and air for 
a vacation trip abroad. 

Making the voyage solo was 
John Knappenberger, a junior, 



who stated with true masculine 
finality that alone is the only way 
to go. He explained that when 
traveling alone it is not necessary 
to adjust your schedule to anyone 
else's plans, and that it is possible 
to meet interesting and varied in- 
dividuals in Europe with whom 
one can travel for a few days. 

Knappenberger's image of rail- 
road traveling was considerably 
altered during his stay abroad. 
He found it an economical, com- 
fortable, and a speedy way to 
travel. (The trains travel at 



'Granddaddy' of Muhlenberg College;

by Edward Man no Shumsky 

Marshall of the College, leader 
of academic processions, former 
head of the mathematics depart- 
ment, and granddaddy of Muhlen- 
berg College. Yes, this describes a 
man, or should I say a landmark, 
who has been on this campus for 
47 years — Dr. Truman L. Koehler. 

Dr. Koehler, with his "grey- 
ing" hair, has that personal touch 
when he teaches . . . "now listen 
boys and girls ..." He imparts 
more than just mathematical 
knowledge to his students. He 
wants them to partake of a "stim- 
ulating experience." As he says 
about his freshman Finite Math 
students: "What I desire most is 
to give them a basic knowledge 
and enjoyment of math. When a 
freshman comes up to me and says 
that he doesn't hate math any 
more, I feel happy that I have ac- 
complished my goal" (of

Reception planned 
for Greek painter 

Sponsored by the Allentown 
Chapter of the Daughters of Pen- 
elope, a reception and tea will 
open the exhibition of paintings 
by Greek artist Spyros Sokaris 
Sunday, from 2-4 p.m.. in the Un- 
ion. 

Attending the reception and tea 
hosted by the Union Board art 
committee will be distinguished 
guest the Honorable George Gavas, 
consul general of Greece in New 
York. 

Open to invited citizens of 
Allentown, the college community 
and the public, the tea will feature 
Greek decorations and refresh- 
ments. 

The exhibition in the Union, 
which contains 32 paintings, will 
be open to the college community 
and public from October 28 to No- 
vember 20. Sokaris' works, re- 
nowned for their "moonlight 
effect" produced by a combination 
of blue and black oils, are often 
referred to us "pop melancholy." 

Sokaris, whose name means 
"one man show," was recently 
honored at a one-man exhibition 
at the Galerie Internationale of 
New York City. 



tonight in the Union at 7:30. 

Speaking on the topic of the 
"mayor - council" form of govern- 
ment.which is presently proposed 
for the city of Allentown, will be 
Michael M. Rosenfeld, vice-chair- 
man of the "Yes For a Better Al- 
lentown Committee." Rosenfeld, a 
realtor in Allentown, is a graduate 
of Perm State, where he received a 
Business Administration degree. 
He notes that President Erling N. 
Jensen who was originally sched- 
uled to speak also, is "a disting- 
uished member of the elected 
charter commission and has work- 
ed long and hard to bring about 
the great fruits which wait for the 
city of Allentown when and if it 
chooses the mayor-council plan, 
proposed by the commission 
earlier this year." Dr. Jensen had 
to cancel his appearance at the 
Poli Sci Conference due to con- 
flicting engagements. 

All members of the college and 
the community are invited to at- 
tend. Citizens of Allentown and 
people from other cities which 
may be contemplating a change 
in their form of government will 
be especially interested in attend- 
ing. 

A short business meeting of stu- 
dents who wish to join the Politi- 
cal Science Conference, "a multi- 
or non-partisan organization for 
advancement of intellectual dis- 
cussions in the fields of govern- 
ment and politics on all levels," 
will follow the speeches. Nomin- 
nations of officers and a budget 
proposal will take place. Anyone

part of this goal is Egyptian nota- 
tion and multiplying by fingers). 

With his courses in calculus and 
mathematical analysis (his spec- 
ialty), his outlook is slightly dif- 




ferent. He tries to instill in the 
upperclassmen a specialty or "ex- 
pertness." He gives purpose to iso- 
lated concepts. He demands from 
his students "independent thought 



and creative effort." 

Dr. Koehler's prominence can be 
noticed in many fields. He received 
his M.A. and Ph.D. from the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania. Over the 
years he has been chairman of the 
American Mathematical Associa- 
tion of eastern Pennsylvania and 
New Jersey, has had several 
papers printed in the Monthly, the 
official bulletin of the Association, 
is a member of O.D.K. and Pi Ep- 
silon Delta, and is listed in "Who's 
Who" in American men of science. 

So for a trip into the world of 
stimulating mathematics, taught 
by an antique of Muhlenberg, take 
a math 21 or 31D course; or if you 
are not too adept at handling these 
advance stages of mathematics, 
take a "play with numbers math," 
Finite Math, with Dr. Truman L. 
Koehler, a landmark and tradi- 
tion of Muhlenberg. "Truly, if you 
do this, you will find this is so."

fectly willing to forego the "treat" 
of battling big city traffic and the 
left-hand-side-of-the-road driving 
in England. 

Evidently, rail travel is a per- 
fect way to meet and speak with 
other vacationers. American girls, 
Knappenberger said, could be dis- 
tinguished by their "flowered col- 
lege dresses" and shoulder bags. 
The girls seem to travel in groups, 
while males are more often alone, 
he also observed. 

Knappenberger's most interest- 
ing comment concerned the trust- 
ful nature of the European youth. 
They walked about alone, talked 
freely to comparative strangers, 
and slept with wallets perfectly 
visible. 

Also braving the European traf- 
fic were three senior women, 
Coralie Bloom, Judy Jones and El- 
len Whitaker, who took to the open 
road in a rented Simca. driving 
4000 miles through nine countries 
in six weeks. 

The girls all agreed that the 
driving presented no real problem, 
although Coralie, who was elected 
to do most of the city chauffering, 
laughingly admitted that there 
were a few close calls. The trio 
noted a little game in France that 
the male drivers pursued. It con- 
sisted of passing, allowing them- 
selves to be passed, and repassing 
the Simca while yelling French 
phrases at the girls, whom they 
took to be French. 

As the Frenchmen took note of 
the American trio, the girls in turn 
took note of the European men.

Thynd.,, Octobdr 26. 1967 



Comment 



Honors dishonored . . . 

In a school with a total enrollment of 1504 students, it is 
shameful that only 14 members of the entire student body 
participated in the Honors Program. From all the voice- 
raising for academic freedom last week, one would assume 
that the students of this liberal arts institution have a real 
enthusiasm for academic pursuits, beyond that of the actual 
classroom. However, the statistics from the Honors Program 
certainly do not bear out this impression. 

Naturally, the admission requirements for acceptance into 
Honors work are demanding, to say nothing of the actual 
work of the course. But surely more than 14 from a student 
body of 1500 are able to meet the standards. 

Some might mention that there are only seven depart- 
ments in which the Honors course is facilitated, implying 
that the subject fields are too limited. However, a closer 
investigation reveals that of the seven participating depart- 
ments, even one of them has no student enrolled in the de- 
partmental program. This is hardly incentive to other 
departments to formulate the Honors curriculum into their 
respective areas. 

Dr. Harold Stenger's remarks about the English Depart- 
ment's Honors Program might easily apply to the program 
in general: "We regard this as not functioning to its maxi- 
mum advantage." The students are not taking advantage. 
And this same student body is now suggesting an interim 
program. Unfortunately, actions sometimes speak louder 
than words. 



Vietnam dead end ... 

There are abortive signs of peace in the air in this country. 
The Washington Peace March was one of the many protests 
which took place from Oakland, California to the University 
of Wisconsin to campuses in New York City against the 
United States' involvement in Vietnam. It is pressure on 
the home front that will eventually force the United States 
to withdraw from the pointless struggle in Vietnam. 

However, the build up of dissent that will bring about this 
change in American foreign policy is a long way off. It took 
a number of years before France yielded to pressure at home 
to get out of Algeria. A withdrawal from Vietnam will not 
occur by 1968 — both parties will nominate candidates who 
will continue the present policy with little or no deviation. 
But by 1972, a war-weary public should have the power to 
elect a president who will withdraw American forces from 
Vietnam. 

If the war ever did end in Vietnam, there is considerable 
doubt that South Vietnam as it is structured now, could 
survive. Little evidence of democratic tradition exists in that 
country where despots have normally ruled. The present 
government does nothing to help the people themselves except 
at a token level. The recent elections have only aided in 
giving the appearance of some legitimacy for military rule. 
With all the tricks the military could pull, peace candidates 
who stressed pacification did much better than had been ex- 
pected. The premise that the United States is in Vietnam 
to protect a democratic government is not reasonable. The 
corruption, inefficiency and military feudalism which abounds 
in the present military system depends upon constant war for 
its own existence. The South Vietnam government could 
not survive if peace was declared; the government has no 
other policy than to fight to perpetuate its own rule. 

The first step that must be taken to free the government 
from its internal tyranny is to disengage itself from the war 
with the National Liberation Front. The United States must 
be asked to leave. Then, a civilian government with radical 
ideas about social, economic and political reforms could help 
the long forgotten, long-suffering man — the Vietnamese 
peasant.

Hook discusses democracy, 
attacks civil disobedience 



Printed by H. RAY HAAS e> CO.. Alloa ten. 

Allentown, Pa., October 26, 1967 



by Ed Lefeldt 

To our visiting scholar, Dr. Sid- 
ney Hook, the American system 
rests on a 'cluster of freedoms,' 
each of which is "strategic," and 
may be surrendered at a moment 
if the system itself is in danger. 
The idea that democracy does not 
rest on absolutes is hardly new, 
but, at a time when pacificist 
demonstrations rock the nation 
and freedom of speech is threaten- 
ed at home, Hook's quietly effec- 
tive Brooklynese voice told the 
student body that it could not re- 
sist what it assumed to be unjust 
or decline to serve in the army or 
even refuse to kill innocent people 
if, by doing so, one violates the 
law. 

Hook assumes that the "inalien- 
able rights" which we possess 
hang together on the tenuous 



thread of the democratic system. 
He further assumes that to men- 
tion absolutely one of these rights 
over the others is to declare one- 
self a "moral fanatic." Although, 
as a relativist, Hook criticizes the 
"slippery slope" argument, which 
says that to claim that our rights 
are not absolute is to slide down 
the slope of tyranny', Hook has his 
own "slippery slope." While he is 
willing to see any of traditional 
American rights mitigated, he Is 
unwilling to have the system itself 
stretched outside its limits. It is 
the democratic system, rather than 
any single part of it, which Hook 
wishes to see preserved. 

In his lecture on education, 
Hook took a similar approach. 
While claiming that education 
would "make possible the creative 
use of leisure," he made it clear

Letters to the Editor 



Thank you note 

To the Editor: 

In the following letter is ack- 
nowledgement from Mr. Wilson to 
the faculty and student body for 
their participation in the Harlem 
Visitation. 

Signed, 

Pastor Eichorn 

Dear Rev. George, 

On behalf of HARCAP and 
Transfiguration Lutheran Church, 
I would like to thank-you for ex- 
tending to us an invitaUon to visit 
Muhlenberg College. Many of the 
HARCAP students commented on 
the educational value of the trip 
and expressed a desire to visit 
other colleges of this caliber. 
Needless to say many of the 
Church students enjoyed the 
recreational aspects of the trip 
also. 

It is our hope that in the future 
we can maintain correspondence 
in regard to our HARCAP Pro- 
gram, and we hope you will ex- 
tend our appreciation to the fac- 
ulty and student body. Please 
continue to send college informa- 
tion to the HARCAP Program. 
Thank-you once again. 

Signed, 

BiU Wilson,

Jensen support 

To the Editor: 

The enclosed article appeared on 
the editorial page of the Bethle- 
hem Globe-Times on Saturday, 
October 21, 1967. 

I found it very encouraging to 
know that at least one newspaper 
in the Lehigh Valley supports Dr. 
Jensen's policy on academic free- 
dom and thought that my fellow 
students might also find it inter- 
esting.

Controversial figures such as Al- 
len Ginsberg and LeRol Jones can 
appear in this vicinity as Ginsberg 
did in Bucks County within the 
year — and draw packed houses 
but excite no concerted protest. 
But let them step on a university 
campus and they blow up a storm, 
eoe 

Not among the students neces- 
sarily—who are sure that the 
presence of such characters on 
campus will have deleterious ef- 
fect. Usually the students listen, 
make their own evaluations and 
resume their living routine, none 
the worse for having been expos- 
ed to some farout 



It is their elders who become 
panicked. Apparently the older 
generation cannot trust college 
students to. do their own thinking 
and wants to serve up predigested 
ideas to the student body. 



Perhaps college trustees — who 
once were college students them- 
selves — should place more trust 
in the upcoming generation and 
have faith that it will arrrive at 
sensible conclusions. Heaven 
knows we haven't done so well 
ourselves, if the sorry state of the 
world is our doing. 



Dr. Eriing N. Jensen is the kind 
of a college president who has 
faith in the student body of Muh- 
lenberg College. It was the stu- 

niora on fa,., 6 



that his real purpose was to edu- 
cate people for life in a demo- 
cratic society. To this end, he 
threw out all of what he termed 
"curricular panaceas," including 
the Berkeley Free Speech Move- 
ment. He also shattered "the cre- 
ative myth" with the statement 
that most of us do not have suffi- 
cient creative talent The basic 
traits of his educational system 
were reasonableness, historical 
perspective, and imagination, all 
of which will be used to help the 
citizen gain a larger appreciation 
of his state and the world. 

Hook, then, is of the instument- 
alist school. Man can be educated 
into intelligence, or at least as 
much intelligence as he is capable 
of. In fact, man has the "moral 
obligaUon to be intelligent." He 
also takes an optimistic view of 
man. "The choice," said the phil- 
osopher, "is not between good and 
evil, but between good and good." 

But his instrumental optimism 
leaves little place for such irra- 
tional motives as instinct and emo- 
tion, or, for that, man's natural 
desire to assert himself creatively. 
He makes a common mistake in 
assuming that absolute rights can- 
not co-exist. The fact that they 
are subject to interpretation does 
not negate their essential meaning. 
To go further is to say that if 
democracy in its impersonal func- 
tioning, destroys the rights on 
which it is based, then the de- 
mocracy itself becomes a tyranny. 

Ultimately, Sidney Hook ex- 
presses the tenor of American life: 
the optimism, the pragmatism, the 
belief in education, and he ex- 
presses it far better than the 
demonstrators who seek to change 
the system or the hippies who seek 
to create another. So, in a very 
real sense, Sidney Hook has given 
a description of how contempor- 
ary democracy works. 



Crinnell drops coed hours; 
matter of safety not morality 



Grinnell, Iowa — (I.P.) Grinnell 
College has abolished women's 
hours effective immediately. Pres- 
ident Glenn Leggett said the Board 
of Trustees approved the new 
policy in the belief "that any reg- 
ulation of college women's hours, 
either by the college or by the 
individual, is a matter of security 
rather than morality and that 
reasonable security can be assured 
within the women's residences

lege's maintaining an arbitrary 
'hours' system." 

"The college is aware that sig- 
nificant changes have occurred 
over the years in attitudes and 
practices which affect the social 
regulations of women," Dean Low 
said. "These changes have been 
reflected in a gradual relaxation 
imposed on college women in their 
freedom to remain outside the col- 
lege dormitories, and the hours 
imposed on most campuses today 
arc far more liberal than they 
were only a decade ago." Dean 
Low added that it has been in- 
creasingly difficult to justify the 
regulation of women's hours since 
neither contemporary parental 
practices nor educational philoso- 
phy tends to support such regula- 
tion. 

"From an academic point of 
view, it seems likely that self- 
regulation, with its inherent ne- 
cessity for the sometimes painful 
development of self-discipline and 
an increasingly intelligent sensi- 
tivity to priorities and proportion, 
has a firmer educational justifica- 
tion than a gradually relaxing sys- 
tem of arbitrary hours set by the 
college." 

Dean Low said the self-regula- 
tion of women's hours will apply 
without regard to parental per- 
mission, adding that the college is 
unwilling to continue to undertake 
regulation over and above that 
which parents are able to encour-

Feds stop demonstrators; 
only 20 invade Pentagon 



by Walter Grant and Phil Semas 

(CPS)— WeU over 100,000 dem- 
onstrators who came here Saturday 
to call for peace in Vietnam were 
met at the Pentagon by about 
2,500 Federal troops armed with 
clubs and rifles, some with bay- 
onets attached. 

More than 400 persons were ar- 
rested. Some were injured ser- 
iously and carried away from the 
Pentagon with bloody faces. Sev- 
eral hundred more received minor 
injuries. 

About 20 demonstrators actually 
made it inside the Pentagon, but 
they were quickly thrown out by 
troops waiting Inside the doors. 
About 2,000 people sat on the long 
porch along the North wall of the 
Pentagon Saturday night. Military 
police were removing them one- 
by-one. Another 2,000 supporters 
remained on the mall below. 

Late Saturday night one MP 
defected to the demonstrators. He 
put down his gun and walked from 
his position in the police lines. 
Many of the demonstrators had 
talked wtih the troops throughout 
the day trying to get them to put 
down their arms and join in the 
peace movement. They cheered 
when the MP defected. The De- 
fense Department did not confirm 



the defection but it was witnessed 
by at least one newsman. 

One line of troops tried to push 
a group of demonstrators away 
from the Pentagon, and officers 
pointed rifles at the backs and 
heads of demonstrators who tried 
to walk away. The officers poked 
some of the marchers with their 
rifles to get them to move away 
from the Pentagon faster, but the 
demonstrators were unable to 
move faster because of the large 
crowd. Hippies threw flowers at 
the police. 

The major move toward the 
Pentagon doors occurred about 
5:45 p.m. when a group of several 
hundred demonstrators broke 
through police lines and charged 
toward the northeast side of the 
building. About 10 of the demon- 
strators ran through a door which 
was open for members of the press. 
The door was quickly closed and 
locked, and the 10 demonstrators 
sat on the floor inside the building. 

But two companies of troops 
carrying bayonets and with gas 
masks were waiting in the hall 
right inside the door. They quickly 
shoved the demonstrators from the 
building, and federal marshals 
joined in with their clubs to beat 
those who had made it inside the 



building. 

Half a dozen times the troops 
used tear gas to drive the demon- 
strators back, although the Penta- 
gon later said there was no auth- 
orization for its use and that the 
tear gas came from the demon- 
strators. But many newsmen saw 
the troops using tear gas, all the 
soldiers put on gas masks before 
the first pellet was exploded, and 
one pellet was shot from the roof 
of the Pentagon. Five demonstrat- 
ors had to be treated for eye in- 
juries due to tear gas, according 
to the Pentagon. 

Inside the building, Secretary of 
Defense Robert McNamara spent 
a normal day at his desk, except 
for times when he watched the 
demonstrators on closed circuit 
television and an hour trip to the 
White House. Attorney General 
Ramsey Clark was also in the 
building for about an hour. Both 
left at 11 p.m. 

Actually, the troops didn't really 
break up the demonstration. It 
was the coming of night and the 
departure of the buses in which 
the demonstrators arrived. By 10 
p.m. only the 2,000 people at the 
sit-in and supporting protesters 
were left. 




Faith versus reason 
in MCA discussion 



Led by Dr. Robert Boyer and Dr. 
Nelvin Vos, a discussion in the 
Brown basement lounge last Sun- 
day evening attempted to discover 
the true extent to which faith and 
reason are, and should be, used in 
our present day society. 

It was suggested that the trend 
in the twentieth century is to de- 
grade faith, to look upon faith as 
a product of the primitive mind, 
and at the same time to excessive- 
ly glorify reason. The scientific 
method is believed to be the con- 
tributing factor to the current low 
status of faith. The exalted posi- 
tion of the scientific method results 
from the fact that twentieth cen- 
tury man does not really under- 
stand it. 

Absolute and rigid measurement 
of scientific law is impossible for 
nature operates on probablistic 
rather than on absolute principles. 
Reason must often be bypassed by

of work for both freshmen and 
sophomores. This course is a 
four-semester course requiring in- 
dependent thought and creative 
effort. 

Approved in September, the 
philosophy department's honors 
program has one student, senior 
Paul Lawrence. Independent work 
is reserved for the senior year; 
however, a seminar is also part 
of the program. 

In its second year the physice 
department's honors program has 
Parke Kunkle, senior, and John 
Berg and Frederick Sherman, both 
juniors, as its participants. Stu- 
dents are expected to do research 
and independent study and in ad- 
dition to informal discussions in 
the physics department, must take 
seminar courses in two other de- 
partments.

science, as its continued applica- 
tion to scientific problems can lead 
to frustration. Revelation and 
faith are just as much a part of 
scientific inquiry as is reason, -and, 
in developing new products and 
processes, faith Is necessarily a 
key element. 

The question then arose as to 
whether a valid conclusion can 
only be found by reasoning pro- 
cesses, or can one also be made on 
faith. Man has been inclined to 
put much more confidence in con- 
clusions arrived at by reasoning 
processes than in those which are 
not. God, has, however, endowed 
man with reasoning processes and 
faith, and it is our duty to use both 
of these powers to their fullest ex- 
tent. 

No person is completely devoid 
of faith. Each of us, although he 
may not always realize it, lives 
on faith. Innumerable situations 
are encountered every day in 
which each of us is called on to 
display his faith. 

With the ever-present forces of 
evil in the world, it is extremely 
difficult for some individuals to 
have or to keep a truly deep faith 
concerning the loving, omnipotent 
and everlasting nature of God. But, 
only through struggle do we dis- 
cover our dependence upon a 
greater Being than ourselves and 
the deep need which we have for 
Him. 

The beginning assumption that 
everyone has faith of some kind 
was affirmed by the fact that all 
of us have basic suppositions 
which cannot be definitely proven 
— yet we continue to believe in 
their actuality and their validity.

F&M bolsters curriculum 
via 'neglected languages' 



The foreign languages depart- 
ment at Franklin and Marshall 
College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 
has embarked on a new voyage in 
linguistics whereby students may 
learn any of 135 languages. 

Part of a new project known as 
the Neglected Language Program, 
the tape recorder method of learn- 
ing anything from Serbo-Croatian 
to Swahili was introduced to the 
college by Dr. J. William Frey, 
chairman of the Russian depart- 
ment. 

Frey explained that "the pro- 
gram is a completely integrated 
study course. A student enrolled 
in the program will receive a com- 
prehensive set of books, especially 
selected by the NLP, language 
study tapes for his specific lan- 
guage, and a personal tape record- 
er which will enable the student 
to listen to his own voice on a 
separate track for voice compari- 
son." 

Frey, as campus coordinator of 
the NLP at F & M, will mark short 



tests which are prepared by the 
authorities on each specific lan- 
guage. His role is that of a guide. 
He is not familiar with every lan- 
guage offered. 

Oral tests will be recorded by 
the student and sent to the region- 
al language expert, a professor of 
that language at a nearby univer- 
sity. The professor will then listen 
to the tapes and send the student 
his personal comments. 

The courses, which are given for 
credit, will conclude with oral and 
written exams given by the region- 
al authority on each particular 
language. 

It is hoped .that the new lan- 
guage courses will be helpful to 
students contemplating careers in 
the Peace Corps, in the fields of 
sociology, anthropology, interna- 
tional politics and other related 
areas. Of course, simply traveling 
to another country would be great- 
ly enhanced by knowledge of the 
tongue of that country.

Originally intending to write a

how the passing of the ocean liner 
reflects the decline of the British

will be of immense interest to the 
people who have lived through the 
decline of the last great empire.

Lounges, rooms show modes; 
women beguile non-resident 



by 

As a commuter I am often amaz- 
ed and even more often amused 
by a quick but observant trip 
through the women's dormitories 
on this campus. Each dorm, and 
even more important each indi- 
vidual room has a distinct aesthe- 
tic style of its own. 

For instance, the sterility of 
Brown Hall basement, er, I mean, 
ground floor, has long since lost 
its appeal (to me, at least) to the 
vibrant green and orange lounges 
of Prosser. While studying in 
Prosser Third's lounge, one can- 
not fall asleep! At the 



wink of an eye or the nod of the 
head one need only to glance off 
at the west wall of Prosser 3's 
lounge: bulging black sofa, yip- 
ping yellow chair, rude Rene Blanc 
(whoever she is) street scene, 
garbage green ash tray, wallflower 
white lamp! I mean who would 
even dare to yawn at such a sight? 
Brown's study is pink, as I re- 
member, and reminds one of the 
soft pillowly effect of a hospital 
bed with three ma tresses. Not at 
all conducive to intellectual in- 
quiry.

Participants feel that the news-

accounts tell of anti-anti-war pro-

article entitled "The Spirit of 
Washington 1967," Paul Lawrence 
writes " 'Confrontation' is the 
word: no longer do the warmakers 
set the limits to the demonstration, 
now the movement sets the limits. 
Before the demonstrators obeyed 
the government and stayed where 
they were told to stay. That was 
merely symbolic protest: any gov- 
ernment that can so easily control 
the opposition shall last forever. 
But now the movement is not so 
easily controlled. There is a spirit 
of defiance, a spirit of solidarity, 
a spirit of active resistance. There 
is confrontation." 



brief tour of them will demonstrate 
several types of ornamentation as 
well as people. First there's the 
all too typical "Paul Newman 
room." Stereo screams, "Rock, 
rock, rock!" There, amidst the 
beer signs, and no smoking signs, 
and turn left at red arrow signs, 
HE hangs in all his glory— Harper, 
Hud, the Hustler of the minds and 
bodies of Muhlenberg's coeds — 
Paul "Maybe Baby" Newman. 
"What a bod," thinks the Berg girl 
upon entering the humble abode of 
her big sister. (She always 
thought her Big Sister was a hu- 
manities major . . . does this ruin 
the image or does this ruin the 
image?) Anyway, it's fun to think 
that Paul replaced someone (prob- 
ably Frank Sinatra or Elvis) and 
will soon be replaced himself 
(probably by Lynda Bird John- 
son's fiance or Mickey Rooney's 
seventh wife's brother-in-law). So 
much for Paul and the beer i 

Next, there's the ' 
stein room." These girls have tak- 
en Contemporary Art and Intro- 
duction to Music, so they display 
the "right art" and play the "right 
music." Strains of Bach's B-minor 
Mass can constantly be heard when 
nearing or entering this room, the 
walls of which are artistically cov- 
ered with bookstore prints by 
Degas, Renoir, Chagall, and of 
course, Pablo himself. 

A few rooms down the hall is 
the "Mom's Coming Up This 
Weekend" room. Here, on a Fri- 
day afternoon, one finds the Paul 
pictures hurriedly folded and de- 
posited behind the dresser. Rock 
records are stashed and give way 
to a sedate album by The Kings- 
ton Trio. Dustcloths are donned 
and the whole place is shipshape 
by 3 a.m. Saturday morning. In 
essence, Mom's coming up this 
weekend, and the gals want to 
spare her the agony of gazing on 
the scene they so lovingly 
upon all semester. 

Finally, last but not least, 
is "the Room." What a bore! She 
even makes her bed before her 
first class! Not a bit of obscenity 
on the walls! Look, a VanGogh 
and a print someone sent from 
Europe. FM radio blaring in 
her ear. Can't get WMUH over 
here, whatsamatter? WAEB? 
What's in those cages over there? 
Did she bring something in from 
the farm? Who's that guy? The 
picture I mean. Does he go to 
Berg? Dolls on the bed? A stuffed 
animal named Corky? 

As a commuter I am often amus- 
ed and even more often amazed. 



Letters to the Editor 

Dr. Jensen has quite properly 
declined to be drawn into airing 
Muhlenberg's internal administra- 
tion problem but he had issued 
a forthright statement on the issue 
of students' rights to an intellect- 
ual climate that permits them to 
explore and evaluate ideas. "It is 
impossible to isolate our young 
people from the ideas and con- 
cepts being discussed widely a- 
cross the country," Dr. Jensen 
stated. "It certainly is preferable 
that these ideas and concepts be 
discussed in the proper atmosphere 
and in context." 

• • • 

On every count, Dr. Jensen's 
actions seem entirely correct. It 
was gratifying to see so many fac- 
ulty and students rally to the side 
of this man of integrity. Muhlen- 
berg is a 
cause of It 



from pot' * 

dents who selected the speakers 
and it was the Student Council 
that asked them to come. In de- 
clining to interfere with these ar- 
rangements or to insist that spea- 
kers be "cleared" by the adminis- 
tration before the invitations are 
issued. Dr. Jensen permitted the 
Student Council to function for the 
student body and refused to con- 
vert the whole student government 
process to a- mere rubber stamp. 



The - speakers came, had their 
say, and departed. There were no 
riot calls for police and there re- 
mains no evidence that Ginsberg 
or Jones picked up any following. 
The horse was not stolen but in the 
future, it appears, many 
the Muhlenberg board of 
want the barn locked up.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Viet Nam forces unsteady; 
early problems hurt army 



Editor's Note: This is part of a 
series of articles on the armies of 
Vietnam by Tran Van Dinh, Viet- 
namese journalist who is a regu- 
lar columnist jor the Collegiate 
Press Service.

Collegiate Press Service 

Washington (CPS)— The Army 
of the Republic of South Vietnam 
(ARVN), 675,000 strong, embodied 
in itself several basic weaknesses 
at its birth: 

1. During the First Indochinese 
War (1946-1954), belatedly, the 
French created through Decree No. 
590P of June 29, 1953, the "Viet- 
namese National Army" as an 
auxiliary force to the French ex- 
peditionary corps. The Vietnamese 
National Army, which at the time 
of Dien Bien Phu comprised 
150,000 regulars and 50,000 "sup- 
pletives," was commanded by 
General Nguyen Van Hinh, a 
French citizen and an officer of 
the French Air Force (he is now 
Deputy Chief of Staff of the 
French Air Force in Paris). 

Despite its name, it was not a 
national army. When President 
Ngo Dinh Diem came into power 
in 1954, he found himself with an 
army which was against him. 
Through political manuevers, 
through pressures from the U. S. 
against France in his favor, thanks 
to his early reputation as an honest 
man. President Diem succeeded in 
getting rid of General Nguyen 
Hinh. He was then faced with the 
rebellion of various religious sects 
(Cao Dai, Hoa Hao) and an armed 
band of gangsters-adventures-po- 
licemen the Binh Xuyen. 

In great haste and for his own 
survival, President Ngo Dinh Diem 
forged an army among the officers 
and soldiers of the former Nguyen 
Van Hinh's army. He defeated the 
main forces of the Cao Dai, Hoa 
Hao, Binh Xuyen. These victories 
proved to be costly in the later 
years. 

ARVN reorganized 

President Diem believed that he 
could deal with the Liberation 
Army of the Front for the National 
Liberation for the South, the Vlet- 
cong, the same way he did with 
the sects and the gangsters. In 
1957. by decree No. 3780P of Octo- 
ber 1957, President Diem reorgan- 
ized the ARVN. Officially the de- 
cree No. 590P of June 29, 1653 
remained valid in the organic 
structure of the ARVN. 

In other words, in an indepen- 
dent Vietnam, facing a revolu- 
tionary situation, President Diem 
built an army on the pattern of 
the French colonial (not metro- 
politan) army. The organization 
was heavy with bureaucracy and 
suffocated by social inequalities 
and social injustices. 

U. S. money used 

2. From 1956, the ARVN was 
built with U.S. aid based on the 
concept that the ARVN will have 
to deal with a Korean-style open 
invasion across the 17th parallel. 
It was organized in field divisions 
(8,500 men each) and light divi- 
sions (5,000 men each) grouped in 
Army Corps and in Tactical Zones. 
The invasion did not come, but 
President Diem instead was faced 
with growing peasant insurgency 
and guerilla warfare. The ARVN 
was too heavy and too little mo- 
tivated to deal with an elusive 
enemy imbued with revolutionary 
ideas. With the increase of Presi- 
dent Diem's personal and despotic 
power, the ARVN became gradu- 
ally the instrument of his family 
power, incapable of dealing with 
national problems. The Army 
however was capable of revolting 
against President Diem who was 



killed with his brother in 1963 by 
the same general's whom he had 
used, bribed, liked and despised. 
ARVN "politically uneducated" 

3. Against this background, the 
ARVN lacked the sense of national 
purpose and was left "politically 
uneducated." True, President 
Diem has used the Army to open 
several campaigns of "anti-com- 
munism" which degenerated into 
systematic and indiscriminate li- 
quidation of all opposition and 
outright oppression of the peas- 
antry. True, Mr. Ngo Dinh Nhu, 
the President's brother and poli- 
tical advisor, had organized in the' 
ARVN, the "Quan Uy Can Lao" 
(The Military Committee of the 
Can Lao, the Personalist party 
which he created). But Uke the 
Can Lao itself, the Quan Uy Can 
Lao was no more than a police 
apparatus in disguise and a ladder 
for sycophants and corrupted ele- 
ments to climb to power. Most of 
the members of the present mili- 
tary junta in Saigon were Can Lao 
members. The Coup d'Etat of 
November 1963 which overthrew 
President Ngo Dinh Diem did not 
change in any way the leadership 
of the ARVN. 

Generals corrupt 

4. The corruption among Viet- 
namese generals in Saigon is an 
open secret. The ARVN is (except 
in a few individual cases) led by 
corrupted and unpatriotic senior 
officers, those who served in the 
defeated French army, those who 
participated in the direct oppres- 
sion of the Diem's regime against 
the Vietnamese people. No wonder 
the ARVN cannot fulfill its na- 
tional mission. 

5. The result is bad leadership: 
in 1966, desertion totalled a record 
116,858. Not all deserters went to 
the other side. The majority sim- 
ply went home or changed profes- 
sions or changed units. Their de- 
sertion is an act of rebellion 
against social injustices and favor- 
itism in the Army, which continue 
to prevail. 

ARVN basically weak 

6. The surprising thing is that 
the ARVN survived for so long so 



| many basic weaknesses. This sur- 
vival resides in the tremendous 
common sense prevalent among 
soldiers and junior officers, the 
majority of them from peasant 
backgrounds. It resides also in 
the esprit de corps born out of 
common sufferings and frustra- 
tions. 

For the ARVN to fulfill its role, 
the need is to make it national. 
But how to make it national when 
it is led by corrupted and unpa- 
triotic generals, when it is rele- 
gated practically now to the baby- 
sitting role of "pacification," when 
the main fighting was carried out 
by foreign troops, when its budget 
is paid by a foreign country, when 
its senior commanders are more 
interested in political maneouver- 
ing and financial dealings than 
fighting. To be fair to those ob- 
scure soldiers and junior officers 
who keep dying every day in the 
battlefields of South Vietnam and 
to whom respect and justice must 
be reserved, one can say that the 
ARVN since its birth did not have 
a chance to be a national army, 
to be a good army, an army which 
is efficient in wartime and peace 
time. Without a complete reedu- 
cation, without a radical change in 
the leadership, the ARVN which 
is inefficient may collapse and dis- 
integrate when peace comes. It is 
tragic because the junior officers 
and the soldiers of the ARVN are 
as good as any of their counter- 
parts in any other army. One how- 
ever must not confuse radical 
change with the internal purge 
under way now in Saigon. 



MULES TACKLE QUAKERS 
OPPONENT: Swarthmore Little Quakers, Swarthmore, Pa. 
HEAD COACH: Lew Elverson in his 26th season. 

1966 RECORD: 6-0-1, including a 34-8 victory over Muhlenberg. 

1967 RECORD: 3-1; victories over Dickinson, 52-8, Franklin 
and Marshall, 23-20, and Ursinus, 14-9; loss to Delaware 
Valley, 35-21. 

CO-CAPTAINS: Jon Summerton and Fred Montgomery. 

OFFENSE: Swarthmore's 3-1 record isn't a fluke. They have 
a very explosive offense that can score from anywhere on 
the field. Quarterback Jon Summerton does an excellent 
job of balancing the passing and running attacks. Last year 
he was second in the MAC in passing and first in per- 
centage of passes completed, 55.7 r / c . So far this season, he 
has six touchdown passes in just four games. By far the 
most explosive player in the Quaker offense is sophomore 
halfback Chip Burton. In four games he has scored seven 
touchdowns, four on passes and three on runs, and has 
thrown one touchdown pass. Last week, against a deter- 
mined Ursinus defense, he failed to score. He did, however, 
compile 92 yards on the ground, complete a pass on the 
halfback option, and intercept two passes. Also in the 
Quaker backfleld will be halfback Craig Martin, last year's 
second leading pass receiver on the team, and fullback Andy 
Weinstein. The offensive line is big and rugged. Fred 
Montgomery is the tight end. John Loven, 6'3" and 230 
pounds, and John Gorllch are the tackles. Eric Blumberg, 
215 pounds, and George Blankenshlp are the guards. Dick 
Kamen, 6'3" and 225 pounds, and Taylor Cope will alternate 
at split end. The Quakers have a soccer-style kicker in 
Dick McCurdy. He has converted ten extra points and 
kicked a 28-yard field goal against F & M. 

DEFENSE: Swarthmore utilizes a 4-4-3 defense with a huge 
front four. They are freshman John Burton, 220 pounds, 
Blumberg, 215 pounds, Loven. 230 pounds, and Dexter 
Farley. 6'4" and 205 pounds. The linebackers will be Kamen. 
Weinstein. Montgomery, and Chris King. In the secondary 
will be C. Burton Cope, and freshman Jerry Whitson. 

OUTLOOK: There is no doubt about the fact that Swarthmore 
is good. But they can be beaten. Delaware Valley has 
already done it and they were able to win by stopping the 
Quaker running attack, allowing only thirteen yards on the 
ground. Summerton can throw and Chip Burton can do it 
all. All indications point to the fact that Burton is much 
more elusive than John Person of Dickinson, and he killed 
Berg with his pass catching. Thus, the Mules must stop 
Burton and the Quaker running game. The Mules aren't 
going to let many more games slip through their fingers 
after last week. Look for a BIG upset in Swarthmore on 
Saturday. 



Red Devils gain last period win 



from pcf 8 

The kick was blocked, however, 
and Berg remained on top by a 
point. 

Yoder handed the kickoff to 
Hastie that worked well for the 
Mules all afternoon. Seconds later 
Henry fired to Hastie for 45 yards 
and another score as passes to Ted 
Dick and Roorbach earlier had 



taken some of the pressure off the 
star split end. Lee Seras' place- 
ment was good and the game 
seemed locked up at 21-13. 

But the Mules couldn't hold the 
lead for long as Person got free 
for a 52-yard pass and then 
George Reynolds took a 13-yarder 
in the end zone to make it 21-19. 
The Devils became even more fired 



Students spend summer in Europe 



from pagr 3 

men terribly attractive, although 
terribly short. Ellen, with true 
patriotic feeling, liked the Ameri- 
can soldiers best. She described 
them as gentlemen, interested in 
home and American girls. 

The girls stated that accomoda- 
tions throughout Europe were very 
reasonable and that the food was 
delicious — with the exception of 
England. 

The trio agreed that driving on 
their own was an ideal way to 
travel. By doing this, they had an 
opportunity to get out of the cities 
and see the older sections of Eur- 
ope. 

What did they have to say con- 
cerning Knappenberger's state- 
ment about traveling alone? The 
girls admitted that they naturally 
did argue at times, but they re- 
turned to the states as even closer 
friends, having shared a memor- 
able summer. 

Not all Muhlenberg travellers 
spent a completely free and easy 
summer. Scrubbing floors on her 
hands and knees was junior Lee 
Bowman, who said that she did 
not mind the work at all as it was 
glossed over with that old world 
charm. 

Lee's vacation came later, when 
she traveled for five weeks with 
a girl from Iowa. She described 
youtli *osteling, in which one can 



stay in a hostel for about 35 cents 
a night. The rooms, Lee said, were 
clean and certainly well worth the 
fee, which sometimes includes 
helping with the chores before one 
leaves. 

Lee found Austria to have the 
most remarkably beautiful scen- 
ery and Holland, oddly enough, to 
be the most Americanized. Yet, in 
even the most Americanized coun- 
try, as well as in all the others, 
Lee noticed the difference between 
American and European ideals. 
As a prime example, our ideals 
concerning sex, at least in theory, 
differ drastically from the Euro- 
peans'. Nevertheless, the Euro- 
peans accept and respect the 
American views and, in this way, 
Lee stated, you learn to accept and 
respect theirs. 

Another working summer was 
spent by senior roommates, Geor- 
geann Lango and Paulette Toppin, 
who served as chambermaids in a 
resort hotel in Brennes, a German 
town near the Czechoslovakian 
border. The hotel was located 
amidst dense forests and moun- 
tains, but the hotel management 
was kind enough to lend the girls 
a Volkswagen bus to travel to the 
nearest city. 

The two described vividly an 
experience they had when they 
and six others were forced to push 
the obstinate vehicle to the top of 



a hill so that they could get it 
started going down the other side. 

The young people with whom 
Georgeann and Paulette worked 
were mostly apprentices learning 
to be cooks, waiters, or clerks. The 
girls noted the high cultural level 
of their fellow-workers, especially 
in the field of music, where they 
were equally versed in rock 'n 
roll, opera, and the lives of clas- 
sical composers. 

Language proved to be a prob- 
lem in the beginning since class- 
room German and the dialect 
spoken there differ considerably. 
Still, people must communicate, 
and a certain amount can be done 
without words. The German 
guests were anxious to try out 
their English, and the American 
travelers were forced to admit 
that the guests' English surpassed 
their German. 

Before coming home, Paulette 
and Georgeann spent ten days 
traveling — by train and much 
shoe leather. Georgeann explain- 
ed her new technique of sleeping, 
adopted during her travels. The 
Germans place a wedge beneath 
the upper portion of their beds so 
that they are not lying flat. 
Georgeann has now placed a pil- 
low under the upper part of her 
mattress because she was getting 
headaches from the pre-Europe 
style of sleeping! 



when Eichelberger again hit Rey- 
nolds on the conversion to tie the 
game. 

Disaster then struck as the 
Mules couldn't move and John 
Harding's punt was blocked on his 
own 11. But the defense dug in 
and held magnificently until fresh- 
man Bill Selim intercepted a po- 
tential touchdown pass to stop the 
thrust. Henry skillfully moved the 
ball out of danger to the Dickin- 
son 42, where the Mules were 
forced to punt. 

The defense again held and 
Berg was soon on the move again 
until Randy Uhrich fumbled on his 
own 47 yard line. After a first 
down Person somehow faked most 
of the Muhlenberg secondary and 
took a pass all alone for the touch- 
down and the game, 28-21. A 
monumental last-ditch effort by 
the Mules was broken twice before 
time ran out.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Thursday, October 26, 1967 



Sportside 

by Larry Wellikson 



Darn if they didn't do it again. 
Muhlenberg's decent football team 
rolled up the score again, only to 
be rolled out of the game in the 
last minutes. And what's more, it's 
really hard to believe that a Berg 
team could score three touchdowns 
twice in one season and lose both 
the games. 

And making the whole situation 
even more tragic is the fact that 
the football team is actually 
talented. This year with new 
coaches and new leadership, the 
lettermen have functioned more 
proficiently than in previous years 
and the freshman arrivals have 
been welcome assets to the start- 
ing positions as well as to the 
overall depth of the squad. 

This year Berg has relied heavi- 
ly on the passing of Ron Henry to 
his main target, Mark Hastie, as 
well as to freshman Ted Dick and 
Randy Roorbach, and on the pow- 
er running of senior Gordie Ben- 
nett, and the end sweeps of Henry 
for most of the offensive drive. 
And because of this offensive pow- 
er the Mules have managed to stay 
in every game until the last min- 
utes, which is really an accom- 
plislunent when one realizes that 
in the past, half of Berg's con- 
tests were usually "laughers." 
Striking changes 
The changes that have been 
made in this year's football team 
are really striking. Blessed with a 
greater number of players with 
more talent than in recent years, 
the coaching staff has tried to take 
advantage of this prosperity in two 
ways. First, because of the depth 
of the squad, W hi spell and his as- 
sistants have stayed pretty much 
with a two platoon set-up, sacri- 
ficing such multi-talented individ- 
uals as Dave Yoder and using him 
exclusively on defense in the last 
few games, while letting freshman 
Randy Uhrich take over Yoder's 
normal running chores. Secondly, 
the Mules have been able to go a 
varied, diversified attack, mixing 
power running with a fine short 
passing game and complimenting 
the open field ground threat with 
the long bomb possibility. 

Endless potential 
With all this Muhlenberg is a 
well-disciplined team with endless 
potential. But for some reason 
they can't come close to meeting 
their potential. They seem destined 
to remain a 1-6-1 or at best a 2-5-1 
team, even though everything ex- 
cept the final scores seem to belie 
that fact. For years Muhlenberg 
has been simply surviving (and 
barely 'accomplishing that) in the 
weak MAC college division. Now 
is the year to put together more 
than a victory over a crippled op- 
ponent and a tie against a most 
definitely weak sister school. Now 
Is the time for our fair-haired 
quarterback and his fellow seniors 
to gain the full taste of victory 
which has so effectedly eluded 
them. The talent and the team are 
there and the time is now. For 
next year's season may be longer 
than a year away. 



Wilkes ruins record; 
varsity tops alumni 

by Jack McCollum 

Muhlenberg's hopes for an undefeated soccer season were 
dashed by Wilkes' rugged team as the Colonels handed Berg 
its first defeat of the year, 2-1, last Wednesday at Wilkes- 
Barre. Wilkes capitalized on a freak goal, a rugged defense, 
and a couple of injuries to key 



Berg players to turn back the 
Mules, who rallied strongly in the 
second half. 

The game was a defensive battle 
for most of the first period until 
Rich Beck slipped a long, high 30- 
yard boot over goalie Tony Rook- 
lin's outstretched hand. The goal 
came with 17 minutes gone in the 
first period and gaves Wilkes a 
1-0 lead. 

The Colonels got their lucky 
break 17 minutes into the second 
half. Don Spruck fired a 30-yarder 
from the left-hand side which 
goalie Rooklin managed to knock 
down. However, a Mule fullback 
accidentally deflected the ball into 
the goal and the score was 2-0. 
Gilroy scores 

The Mules came roaring back 
in the final period when they 
started to wear down the tenacious 
Wilkes defense. With the period 
half over, Bruce Fechnay slipped 
a pass to Ed Gilroy and the latter 
banged one home from ten yards 
out to end .the scoring for the day. 

A decisive factor in the game 
was the defense of Wilkes' All- 
American fullback Ed Mondo's 
man-to-man coverage of Fechnay, 
the Mules' high-scoring freshman. 
Fechnay played an excellent game 
but was unable to shake loose with 
his usual consistency. Also out- 
standing for the Mules were Gil- 
roy, Bill Appel, and Rooklin, who 
made 26 saves. The Mules suffered 
from the absence of Mike Stoudt 
and Ron Tuma and the sporadic 
use of Captain Lee Krug, who is 
still trying to shake an injury.

Alumni beaten 

The Mules used two second-half 
goals to knock off a surprisingly 
strong alumni team last Saturday, 
3-1. A sizeable Homecoming 
crowd saw the grads battle Berg 
in the second half, when Ed Gilroy 
evenly until 13 minutes were gone 
put a head shot past alumni goalie 
Carl Buchholz to give the Mules 
a 2-1 edge. Ken Kittle notched the 
assist on a beautiful corner kick. 
Bruce Fechnay finished the scoring 
with a four-period goal on a pass 
from Gilroy. 

Larry Cook got the varsity 
started with a ten-yarder early in 
the second period. Dave Wilson 
had set Cook up with a beauUful 
assist. However, Skip Snyder tal- 
lied for the alumni, with only 30 
seconds remaining in the first half, 
to Ue the score. 

The victory was Berg's fifth 
straight win over the alumni and 
put this year's log at seven wins 
and one defeat. 



Dickinson stuns Mules 
in Homecoming debacle 

by Pete Helwig 

Senior quarterback Ron Henry led a devastating Muhlen- 
berg offense which piled up 458 yards last Saturday only to 
fall to a determined Dickinson team, 28-21. It was a bitter- 
sweet Homecoming game for hundreds of returning alumni 
who Watched in amazement as the Mules dominated the entire 
game only to have victory elude 



them in the final minutes. 

The play occurred with 1:44 left 
in the game and the score at 28-21. 
After three long gains by Henry 
and one by Randy Uhrich the ball 
stood inches away from the Devils' 
goal. That elusive and perhaps 
game-winning touchdown that had 
seemed inevitable all afternoon 
was about to happen. Henry 
would run. He took off around 
right end and just as he crossed 
the goal he was hit, the ball pop- 
ping out of his hands. He lay on 
his back, two yards deep in the 
end zone, and watched the referee 
drop his uplifted hands and signal 
a first down for Dickinson. 

Ball game? Not quite. The 
young Berg defensive unit held 
on three plays and the Mules 
started to roll again from the 
Devils' 47 with 37 seconds left 
Fans stopped in the aisles as Gordy 
Bennett carried a perfect screen 



pass to the 36. After two incom- 
plete passes there was time for 
two, maybe three more plays. But 
Dickinson's Greg Ross gobbled up 
a stray aerial and it was suddenly 
all over. Bang. 

Errors oostly 
But the game was hardly lost on 
the Dickinson goal line. It was lost 
earlier In the first quarter as the 
Mules failed to cover a punt and 
awoke to find the Devils on the 
14 yard line. Six plays later Dick- 
inson managed to push across a 
score, and Berg was rather typical- 
ly down 7-0 in the first quarter. 

Henry went right to work as he 
and Mark HasUe ran the ball 
downfleld. A pass to Ted Dick on 
the 32 and a set of Henry roll-outs 
set up the quarterback's 



Soccer teams kick off; 
PKT takes early l-M lead 



by Jon Fischer 

With football and cross-country 
now finished, soccer goals have 
been put up on former football 
fields as the soccer season got 
under way on Monday. Dave 
Sloan scored three times as LXA 
shut out TKE, 3-0. Bill Snover 



Hockey team still undefeated; 
beats Millers ville, Philadelphia 



In spite of a rough field at Phil- 
adelphia the girls' hocky team 
squeezed by Philadelphia College 
of the Bible, 2-1, to add still an- 
other victory to their win column. 

During the first half the 'Berg 
players seemd to lack the con- 
necting spark needed for a well- 
played game. Passing was slow 
and playing sluggish. Sally Bar- 
bour hit the cage for a goal, but 
P. C. of B. bounced back and Ued 
the score. 1-1. 

Each team entered the second 
half psyched to break the Ue. Al- 
though Berg was playing better, 
the half proved long and arduous 
as the ball moved back and forth. 
Finally Charlotte Greer, center 
halfback, gained control of the ball 
drove, and scored. P.C. of B. 
tried to score a few times, but 
Berg frustrated each attempt. 
MUlersville next victim 

Traveling to Millersville the 
hockey team played hard and 
effectively in the pursuit of a 
strong victory, 3-0. The game 
started fast and remained that way 
throughout. Coach Hecht was 
very satisfied with her team 
since the players were a well-co- 
ordinated unit and passed nicely. 

Berg's first score came when 
Coralie Bloom, left halfback, 
stormed the cage and connected. 
Later right wing Kathy Harman 
hit a long drive across the field. 
Millersville's line rushed, but Mac 
(Boehringer) Baus quickly de- 
flected the ball into the goal giving 
us us a 2-0 lead. 

Starting the second half with a 
penalty because one player did

fought hard to overcome the dis- 
advantage. With morale up again 
we attacked their goal and main- 
tained control as we passed back 
and forth. Sally Barbour zoomed 
a tremendous drive — "the kind 
Coach Hecht loves to see" into the 
cage and tallied the final goal. 

Kae Ernst as left fullback play- 
ed an exceptionally good defen- 
sive game. 

The team was said to be "out to

game yesterday and avenge Coach 
Hecht's only loss in her career at 
Muhlenberg. 

This Saturday the girls' hockey 
team travels to Drexel to play in 
an all-college hockey tournament. 

The purpose of the tournament 
is to pick outstanding players in 
all positions. Players will be pick- 
ed from Saturday's trials and will 
be asked to return Sunday for fur- 
ther competiUon. Those picked 
will comprise five teams which 
will return to compete the next 
weekend. 

Berg plays three games of twen- 
ty minutes each. The first oppo- 
nent is Swarthmore, the next is 
Eastern BapUst, and the last, Rose- 
ment. Our goaUe Betsy Weller has 
a goalie trial that afternoon. 

Coach Hecht will know late 
Saturday evening who will return 
Sunday. A final selecUon commit- 
tee makes the decisions on Sun- 
day's trials. 

Coach Hecht is hoping that some 
of her players will have the oppor- 
tunity to return and is waiting 
anxiously for the tournament.

Albright stops Muhlenberg bid 
for initial cross-country victory 



The Muhlenberg College cross 
country team's bid for victory was 
foiled again last week by the Lions 
of Albright as they nipped Berg 
27-28. The loss was the Mules' 
sixth straight this season. 

The Mules almost won the close- 
ly contested meet as three of the 
first five finishers were Berg run- 
ners. However, Al Adelman out- 
ran the Mules' Doug Henry, cov- 
ering the 4.3 mile course in the 
excellent time of 24:06 to take 



the all Important first positon for 
the Lions. Henry finished second, 
followed by Ralph Grimes In third 
and Glenn Siefert In fourth. Tim 
Ferguson finished ninth for Berg 
and Miller brought up the tenth 
position. 

The Mules put out their most 
successful effort to date against 
the Lions. With four meets re- 
maining, the Berg harriers show 
signs of improving and may ulti- 
mately achieve victory.

Volume 88, Number 7, Thursday, November 2, 1967 Muhlenberg College, Allentown, Pa. 

Koch acts as 'reluctant leader' 
against student speaker choice 



"I believe In academic freedom, 
but when it comes to garbage and 
obscenity I draw the line. I am 
interested in decency." These 
words were spoken by Judge Ken- 
neth H. Koch of Lehigh County 
Courts and secretary of the Board 
of Trustees of Muhlenberg College 
who has denied that he implemen- 
ted the circulation of an estima- 
ted 30 petitions opposing President 
Erling Jensen's stand on speaker 
policy. 

The issue of speaker policy orig- 
inated almost one month ago, how- 
ever local newspapers and citizens 
have kept the issue in the fore- 
front. The present state of affairs 
centers about the circulation of pe- 
titions expressing opposition to the 
students role in inviting campus 
speakers. Although Judge Koch's 
sentiments are in sympathy with 
those of the petitioner's — "The 
administration has the right and 
responsibilty to prescribe the type 
of speakers at the college" — he 
disclaims any role in beginning the 
petitioning. However, Allentown 
newspapers have branded Koch 
the "reluctant leader" of this new 
campaign to restrict student choice 
of assembly speakers. 

Annoyed by his dubbed leader- 
ship of the movement, Koch has 
expressed disturbance concerning 
all the letters and calls received 
supporting his stand. The Judge 
requests that those people with 



opinions on the issue direct their 
feelings to the Board of Trutees. 

Admitting that he did not even 
know the effect of the speakers on 
the students here on campus, the 
judge, however, did express his 
concern that "the public image of 
the college has been hurt." He 



added that he doubted that the 
controversial speakers had any ed- 
ucational value to those who heard 
them. Furthermore, the judge re- 
marked that the motives of the 
speakers were purely mercenary — 
"Jones took his $1000 and left." To

Jensen describes 
'freedom', budget 



by Connie Orndorf 

President Erling N. Jensen, 
hosting (he October 26. meeting of 
Student Council, reported his 
views on academic freedom and 
the Board of Trustees' newly 
adopted budget. 

Concerning academic freedom 
President Jensen quoted Sidney 
Hook, October 20 assembly speak- 
er, who said, "There are no ab- 
solute freedoms." Jensen stated 
that in the goals of the college 
three principles should be follow- 
ed: academic freedom based on 
responsibilities, obligations, and 
limitations; choice of assembly 
speakers by students (however, 
not necessarily by one student); 
and effective consultation with 
college personnel. 

Jensen also discussed the Board 
of Trustees' new budget which in- 
cludes an increase of $25 in board 
charges and $20 in room charges 
in the 1968-69 academic year and 
a $200 increase of comprehensive 
fee in the 1969-70 academic year. 

Hence, board charges will in- 
crease from $500 to $525, room 
charges will change from the pre- 
vious range of $330-$380 to $350- 
$400, and comprehensive fee will 
be $1950 instead of the present 
$1750. 

Increase in fees results from the 
need to maintain quality education 
and the need to operate on sound 
financial practices which include a 



balanced budget. Higher cost of 
living, stepped up competition 
which necessitates salary increas- 
es, and financial aid influence the 
budget. 

Old business included the nomi- 
nation of Smokey Robinson and 
the Miracles and Stevle Wonder 
as first choice for a package con- 
cert for the February 10 Big Name 
Weekend. 

Student Council reviewed the 
policy for an IFC constitutional 
amendment and discussed the pos- 
sibility of sponsoring Negro and 
underprivileged Allentown stu- 
dents for a weekend visit to the 
campus. 

The members reviewed the pros 
and cons of the weekend for the 
Harlem students to determine if 
this idea would be beneficial. Sug- 
gestions of employing many col- 
lege organizations rather than only 
IFC to coordinate the program, 
utilizing men's rooms rather than 
dormitory study lounges for men's 
sleeping quarters, and setting up 
a one-to-one ratio between visitor 
and college student resulted. 

The Festival of the Arts com- 
mittee reported sending letters to 
the various artists who will par- 
ticipate in this year's program. 
The sophomore class committee 
also announced the proposal for a 
hay ride and barn dance to be held 
November 11.

more games. The one remaining

Outside the game room in the

recruiters who sell their literature 
for conversation with prospective 
enlistees. 

These recruiters have often been 
the objects of snickers. Rumor has 
it that they were placed there by 
the administration to light fires 
under those teetering on the bor- 
der of failing. 

It is evident, however, that these 
various branches of the service are 
at Muhlenberg for a purpose. They 
are actively competing for the col- 
lege graduates or even the drop- 
outs. This proves, in graphic 
terms, that the military can be 
the place for anyone who will ser- 
iously consider it as a career. 

The administration realizes their 
essential importance. Each year 
all the service branches write for 
permission to come to Muhlenberg, 
and they are never turned away. 
Bargerstock, the director of place- 
ment, explained that the graduat-

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Thursday, November 2, 1967 



Amram considers creativity, 
praises leadership of Beatles 



by Don Peck 

Last week's assembly program 
presented the American composer, 
David Amram. Amram's credits 
as a composer are extensive. He 
has written scores for Broadway 
plays (J. B.. After the Fall, etc.), 
the New York Shakespeare Fes- 
tival, films (Splendor In the Grass, 
The Manchurian Candidate, The 
Young Savages, etc.), as well as 
two operas (Twelfth Night and 
The Final Ingredient, which has 
been presented twice on ABC-TV) 
and a number of symphonic and 
chamber pieces. The past year, 
Amram was composer - in - resi- 
dence with the New York Philhar- 
monic. 

Amram's talk was a demonstra- 
tion-lecture, in which he played a 
piece of his own, and delivered an 
introspective analysis of its crea- 
tion. The speech had been written 
originally for a conference of psy- 
chotherapists who were studying 
the "creative process." As such, 
Amram's talk was an interesting, 
first-hand account of the objective 
and subjective factors which go 
into the creation of an art-object, 
in this case a musical piece for a 
trio of piano, violin and cello, en- 
titled "Dirge and Variations." 

The piece began with the dirge- 
theme stated by the cello. It is a 
long, slow and mournful theme, 
vaguely Hebraic in nature. The 
variations which build upon this 
theme range in character from the 
lively jazz-like rhythms of a 
scherzo variation to a broad, 



grandiose treatment of the theme. 
The final variation is a recapitula- 
tion of the original theme with the 
addition of a repeated single tone 
in the piano. 

In discussing his "Dirge and 
Variations," Amram said that he 
felt it dealt more with the life- 
cycle than with death, in spite of 
its title and the funeral quality of 
the theme. He later added that, 
for him, death became "the poetic 
conclusion to this life-cycle." The 
composer stated that, in spite of 
such discussion, the piece had no 
programmatic content, and was 
what is called "pure music" — 
music in which the expressive 
content, though important, is ex- 
traneous to the formal elements of 
its composition. 

In discussing the act of com- 
posing music, Amram had a num- 
ber of things to say. He feels that 
composing with notes is similar to 
composing with words in the mak- 
ing of a poem, in that one should 
strive to use notes and words 
which are inevitable, which follow 
one another in a logical sequence, 
and which are the only notes and 
words suitable in the working out 
of the composition. 

In talking about the term "in- 
spiration," the composer cate- 
gorically debunked the Warner 
Brothers' chimera of a brilliant 
young composer being struck by a 
lightning flash of genius. 

In conclusion, Amram stated 
that, for him, the creative process

was a means in which one be- 
comes aware of oneself, a process 
in which the subconscious is ex- 
pressed and can be analyzed. 

Following the talk, Amram 
fielded questions from the audi- 
ence with considerable adroitness. 
Of special interest was his reply 
to the question of the worth of the 
new rock-and-roll music. Amram 
gave considerable credit to the in- 
genuity and leadership of the 
Beatles. He said that he felt that 
the genuine and widespread re- 
sponse felt by today's youth to- 
wards the new groups would bring 
about a response to other kinds of 
music as well.

relations with the Far East and 
was present at the drafting of the 
charter of the United Nations in 
San Francisco. 

Dr. Fahs discussed Japan, Korea, 
China and Vietnam and their re- 
lationship to the United Nations. 

Beginning his talk with the 
events leading up to Japan's ad- 
mittance to the U.N. in 1956, he 
discussed the role of the U.N. in 
Korea ten years ago, the U.N.'s 
largest undertaking to date. Fol- 
lowing the occupation of North 
Korea by Communist troops, the 
United Nations declared the Re- 
public of Korea (South Korea) 
the only lawful government on the 
peninsula. When North Korea in- 
vaded South Korea in 1950, the 
Security Council appealed to the 
other nations of the world for mili- 
tary support in South Korea. The 
U. S. and three other countries 
offered assistance. 

Unfortunately, negotiations for 
an armistice in Korea took two 
years to complete. Furthermore, 
the decision in 1953 was no definite 
solution. Forays continue on the 
border today. Nevertheless, nego- 
tiations replaced large scale hos- 
tilities, and meanwhile the Repub- 
lic of Korea has been able to grow 
and become strong. 

Dr. Fahs also considered the 
question of the recognition of Red 
China by the U.S. He stressed 
that although we do not have dip- 
lomatic relations with the country, 
we have been in contact with them 
and discussions with them con- 
tinue. He expressed support for 
this U.S. policy, stressing the fact 
that a re-evaluation might be nec- 
essary in the future. 

This question, he said, is closely 
related to recognition of Red China 
by the U.N. because the U.S. is 
the single most important support- 
er of the Republic of China (For- 
mosa) and it is an important area 
to us. 

In considering Vietnam, Dr. 
Fahs said the General Assembly 
actually has little power and can- 
not solve the problem. Action by 
the Security Council is more influ- 
ential, but, of course, both the U.S. 
and the Soviet Union have to agree 
to the decisions of the Council. 

In conclusion. Dr. Fahs stated 
that the United Nations remains 
important for both formal and in- 
formal discussions.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Marriage applauded: 
musk, acting superb 



by Robert B. Woodside, n 

The following is a review of 
"The Marriage of Figaro" which 
was presented in the Science Audi- 
torium October 26, 27, and 28. 

No one who saw Sandra Semonis 
as The Countess in "The Marriage 



Strohl played his role well, and 
sang to perfection. His rich bari- 
tone is to be envied. 

I was delighted with the two 
students who had solo roles. Don

of Figaro" needs to be told that 
she is a fabulous singer. Her two 
arias, "Porgi Amor" and "Dove 
Sono" were sung with such beauty 
and control, that is was exciting to 
be in the same theater with her. 
I have never heard the role of The 
Countess sung with such sensitiv- 
ity. Lot us hope that we will be 
hearing more of her in future pro- 
ductions. 

This lavish praise for Miss Se- 
monis is not made to belittle the 
talents of the rest of the cast. In- 
deed, all of the singers were ex- 
cellent. Martha Samuels as Su- 
sanna was perfect for the role. 
Pert, saucy, and short-tempered 
where "her man" was concerned, 
she negotiated every aria, duet and 
ensemble with ease and perfection. 
The duet, "Sull' area" between 
Susanna and The Countess was 
particularly beautiful — lyrical 
and with proper balance between 
the two voices. Susanna's Fourth 
Act aria was tender and a joy to 
hear. 

As for Norman Cressman as the 
Count and William Strohl as Fig- 
aro, it is not sufficient to say that 
they sang well. Cressman has a 
marvelously plastic face which he 
used to great advantage, making 
the Count a truly comic character.

Bob Dylan/Don't Look 
Back, a Leacock Pennebaker 
Inc. film, runs approximately 90 
minutes. In this time lapse the 
life of Bob Dylan as a poet-singer 
and human being is exposed to the 
public. 

The film maker D. A. Penne- 
baker uses a technique called 
Cinema Verita ("film of the 
truth") to produce a documentary- 
type feature on Dylan's 1965 con- 
cert tour of England. Equipped 
with a specially adapted 16 mm. 
camera and a portable tape re- 
corder. Pennebaker "tells it like it 
is." 

The film depicts the Dylan who 
is back stage in the countless wait- 
ing rooms and in the dingy hotel 
rooms that are part of a concert 
tour. If any feeling is evoked in 
the viewer, it is that of empathy 
for the performer whose life is 
made up of pawing mobs of fans, 
wheeler-dealer agents and hust- 
ling managers. Pennebaker pre- 
sents the moments before a con- 
cert and the first moments of a 
concert itself a number of times in 
the film. 

The murky rooms back stage are 
somehow always the same, and in 
the moments preceding his en- 
trance on the stage, Dylan is 
characterized by an unconcerned 
manner. Each entrance is greeted 
by applause from the audience 
followed by the opening chords 
and lines of "The Times They are 
A-ChanginV 



Nobody waved goodbye 
commences Art Film Series 



Nobody Waved Goodbye, the 

first movie in the new Art Film 
Series, will be shown tomorrow 
night in the Science Auditorium at 
7:30 p.m. along with a short film, 
"The Critic." 

This will begin a series of six 
Friday night films sponsored by 
Union Board and Student Council. 
Series tickets for all six per- 
formances are $4.00, and individ- 
ual tickets are 75<*. They can be 
purchased at the Union Desk or at 
the Science Auditorium the night 
of the performance. 

The award winning Nobody 



Waved Goodbye is described as a 
"dramatic and appealing contribu- 
tion to our understanding of mod- 
ern youth." It concerns two teen- 
agers who, in their love affair, en- 
counter their first break with con- 
vention and the standards of their 
parents in middle-class society. 

Media and Methods says the 
film ". . . meets the realities of 
teenage living head on: parents, 
love, sex, life, meaning ... a 
youngster at odds with society, 
confused and anxious, seeking a 
set of personal values more mean- 
ingful than those of his parents." 



PERSONAL: 

Will the young lady who 
parked her red convertible 
in front of the library last 
Friday with two cases of 
Genesee Beer in the back, 
please pick up the empties? 



As a viewer, one cannot help re- 
flecting that Dylan's seeming in- 
difference, created by monotonous 
repetition of performance after 
performance, is a necessity for 
survival and that, for the Dylan 
of this film, the times are not 
changing. Perhaps it is this type 
of existence that has caused Bob 
Dylan to end his concert appear- 
ances. 

But Don't Look Back com- 
ments on more than the grimmer 
aspects of a performer's life. Dy- 
lan's sense of humor is shown at 
times. Especially good are the 
scenes during which he is inter- 
viewed by various people. The 
scene in which Dylan "puts down" 
a reporter from Time magazine is 
extremely funny. The next best 
scene to this is one in which Dylan 
gives a college newspaper report- 
er a brilliantly hard time. This 



scene is a little too long, but in- 
terest is sustained because Dylan 
so completely confuses and upsets 
the reporter that the student ends 
up analyzing himself and his social 
problems while Dylan becomes the 
interviewer instead of the inter- 
viewed. 

In my opinion, Don't Look 
Back fails to successfully reveal 
the great sense of humor that Dy- 
lan has, even though Pennebaker 
made some excellent attempts at 
this. Judging from the times when 
I have seen Dylan in person and 
such interviews as that which ap- 
peared in Playboy, Pennebaker 
falls short of presenting all the 
facets of Dylan's humor. To label 
this humor seems impossible. One 
can only experience it. Unfortu- 
nately, such an experience can 
only be partially felt during this

Comme+U 



Turn of the screw . . . 

Without a doubt everyone about to read down this column 
is sick of reading about the same old battle of the Board that 
has seen print in this paper since the appearance of LeRoi 
Jones. But instead of being sickened by boredom, this week 
we are sickened by the disgusting public display of personal 
feelings which have been flaunted across the Allentown 
papers by Secretary of the Board of Trustees Kenneth H. 
Koch. 

Reluctant or not, Koch is the leader of this present move- 
ment against our President's stand on speaker policy. When 
referring to the estimated 30 petitions in circulation sympa- 
thizing with Koch's view, the Allentown papers consistently 
describe these documents as "petitions in support of Judge 
Kenneth H. Koch's position in the Muhlenberg College speak- 
ers controversy." And the hard old man is not really very 
reluctant when it comes to making comments concerning the 
issue to the public as evidenced by some 20 inches of dialogue 
in the Sunday, October 26 edition of the Allentown Call- 
Chronicle. 

Expressing his annoyance with all the letters and calls 
supporting his stand. Koch said that he wishes those who 
have an opinion on the matter would make it known to the 
Board of Trustees. But Koch IS one of the Trustees, although 
we will venture to say that his recent behavior would make 
the Board hesitant to admit to this fact. If Koch is acting 
on behalf of the Board, as he should be under the circum- 
stances, he has violated the integrity of that body of men, 
to say nothing of his breach of professional ethics which are 
inherent in his position as a Board member. In his excite- 
ment, Koch has made a ridiculous display of personal preju- 
dices which should have been reserved for the closed-door 
December Board meeting. 

We fail to see exactly what is so sacrosanct about Ken- 
neth H. Koch that his opinion should be continually appear- 
ing in the papers. Surely his opinion in itself is not different 
from that of hundreds of others in Allentown. Thus it is 
obvious that the judge is taking advantage of his position 
on the Board, swinging the proverbial weight and pulling the 
proverbial strings in his own personal assault on President 
Erling Jensen. 

Koch says he is interested not in personalities, but rather 
in principles. Beside the fact that the judge has overlooked 
some very basic ethical principles, there remains the fact that 
the battle is now labeled Kenneth H. Koch versus Erling 
N. Jensen The judge has alienated himself from that other 
confrontation between the Board and the president. This IS 
a battle of personalities on the judge's part. 

Heartwarmingly concerned the judge asks, "The public 
image of the college has been hurt, has it not?" Yes, Judge 
Koch, Secretary of the Muhlenberg College Board of Trustees, 
the image has been hurt. You personally have done more 
harm to this institution's name than the total of Allen Gins- 
berg, Timothy Leary, Russell Stetler and LeRoi Jones. Your 
public statement consisting of such words as "garbage" and 
"first-class hood," is as loutishly descriptive as Ginsberg's, 
your public appeal is as undignified as Leary's, your hatred 
is as intense as Jones', and hopefully your effect is as short- 
lived on this campus as was Stetler's.

Allentown, Pa., November 2, 1967 



School 



It's November, the middle of the football season, and one year away from a Presi- 
dential election. 

In fact, the political scene in America today is like one big bowl game, late in the 
fourth quarter. Unfortunately, no one on the two strong teams seems capable of running 
with the ball even though on the sidelines, the substitutes — 97 pound weaklings basically 
— are clamoring for a chance to play. 

In case you missed the opening parts of the Political Bowl, I'll recap the important 
events. The Republican team, in the" opening quarter — 1964 — almost forfeited its right 
to even be on the field when it started Barry Goldwater at quarterback. The Arizona 
flash, affectionately known as the Republicans' greatest contribution to liberalism, played 
the game with only the right side of his team. He was pounded into the turf for some of 
the biggest losses ever seen in the football arena. Score: Dems 43, GOP 26. 

The Democrats, running smoothly under the leadership of scrambling Lyn Johnson — 
who inherited a first place team from the preceding quarterback — continued to score im- 
pressively in the second quarter. This team, using several successful major plays, kept 
the home crowd happy. But Lyn started taking his eye off the game and an untouted 
player — crazylegs Minh — from another league made Johnson nervous. 

Minh's team, a scrufty bunch, challenged Johnson to a game of two against two. But 
surprise! Johnson, the clever devil, brought three men to play; surely three players 
would stop this challenge. But surprise again ! Crazylegs brought in some extra play- 
ers, also. The game is now seven against seven and it may even escalate into a full grid- 
iron battle. Despite severe injuries, neither Johnson, nor Minh will call time out. Mean- 
while, the Republicans have been calling for extra men to play for Johnson's team. 
Score: Johnson — 6, Republicans — 8. 

Because of Lyn's neglect of the main game, several Republicans have successfully blitz- 
ed through the Democratic line, elated by the retirement of several key players. Caught 
playing two games at once, Johnson looks for a play to get his team moving again. He 
asks the boys in the huddle for advice but all the pros are gone; those left know only 
one play. "The bomb, throw the bomb," they cry. Johnson is unsure of the play; he settles 
for a screen pass. But, distracted by riots in the crowd, he fumbles. 

What a chance for the GOP to get back in the ball game. But where are they? 
Where is their quarterback? Now is their chance. 

Fable of the snowy-white sheep 



Once upon a very long time ago 
in a far-off valley in the far-off 
mountains of Academia, there ex- 
isted a large flock of mighty-fine, 
snowy-white sheep. The sheep 
were carefully seleceted and wat- 
ched over by their zealous own- 
ers. The owners were very con- 
cerned that the snowy-white sheep 
should be kept from the savage 
animals and the ill winds of the 
world outside the small protected 
valley where the white sheep gra- 
zed. 

The owners of the flock were 
very wealthy men who were 
prominent in the community lo- 
cated at the foot of the Academia 
Mountains. The village had been 
awarded the "All-Wowie" award 
just three years before this story 
took place. All of the owners had 
other trades by which they had 
acquired their social standing, but 
they had joined together to raise 
the best flock of sheep in the reg- 
ion of this far-away land. In the 
process, they hoped to profit from 
the benefits that this venture 
would bring. People would look 
to them as enlightened men and 
they would get quiet satisfaction 
from their sheep-raising. 

Mighty-fine fellow 

Because the owners could not 
take care of the sheep themselves 
they hired a sheepherder who was 
well-known in the community for 
sterling performances in other 
flelds of endeavor. His common 
sense and intelligence were quali- 
ties the owners recognized when 
they picked young Nesnej (for 
that was his name, although it 
may sound strange to you) to do 
the job. He had never previously 
yelled "wolf" unless there really 
was a wolf present, at which times 
he would very smartly and Intelli- 
gently yell "wolf." All agreed that 
he was indeed a mighty-fine fel- 
low. 

Life as a sheep-tender was not 
easy in the barren Academia 
Mountains. Young Nesnej had to 
keep the snowy-white sheep enter- 
tained so that they would get fat 
and win prizes for the owners 
when they were taken to fairs in 
the Academia Mountain area. As 
long as the sheep were winning 
prizes and were keeping their 



by Malcom Parker 

reputations high, the owners were 
smugly happy. When the town 
crier shouted anything about the 
sheep flock, it was inevitably good 
news. 

Lightning strikes 

One sunny day, many years af- 
ter Nesnej took over, a storm be- 
gan to brew. It was not a real 
thunder and lightning storm, but 
its effects were similar. For a 
number of years it seems that the 
sheep had asked the young Nesnej 
if they could invite other sheep- 
herders from other flocks to sing 
to them. This system worked out 
well because the sheep were enter- 
tained with what they wanted to 
know and hear. They learned 
about other sheep (not all were 
snowy-white) and other places 
(not all had such green pastures). 



Letter To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

Last year's Open Forum and 
Festival of the Arts programs were 
a blatant manifestation of a 
change that was taking place at 
Muhlenberg College. Muhlenberg 
was giving the student an oppor- 
tunity to gain direct exposure to 
ideas and events whose import 
went beyond the conflnes of Lib- 
erty and Chew. Purposefully, and 
surprisingly controversial pro- 
grams were presented without ad- 
ministrative interference. The sig- 
nificance and worth of such pro- 
grams was obvious; snack bar dis- 
cussions for awhile ceased to be 
classroom oriented. 

It is encouraging to learn that 
Muhlenberg is conUnuing to offer 
the student the opportunity of re- 
sponsible exposure to and evalua- 
tion of current ideas. And It is 
especially satisfying to hear that 
faculty, parents, and students are 
openly declaring their support of 
President Jensen's position of aca- 
demic freedom. I wish to add my 
voice to the collective support of 
those who have signed petitions.

The snowy-white sheep began to 
develop more potential and won 
an increased number of prizes over 
the years. 

On this particular sunny day, 
however, a very controversial 
sheepherder spoke to the snowy- 
white sheep. They did not like 
him, but they were grateful to the 
young Nesnej for permitting them 
to form ther own opinion on the 
issue. Unfortunately, the town- 
crier was in the vicinity when the 
controversial herder was speaking. 
Quickly the crier ran back to 
spread the word to the community, 
for he was the type of person who 
could not wait to impart what he 
knew, even if he was misinformed 
or only partly informed. His word 
was gold in the "All-Wowie" vill- 
age. 

When the townspeople heard the 
crier, they were aghast that young 
Nesnej had allowed the snowy- 
white sheep to hear this talk over 
the mountains even though the 
snowy-white sheep did not en- 
dorse what they heard. Actually, 
this program had made the flock 
more agile and able to win more 
and more prizes. 

Fired for quality 

However, the owners were dis- 
turbed by the town crier's yelling 
and shouting and the town's peti- 
tions of anger. They decided that 
they were not as interested in 
quality sheep as they were in pro- 
tecting their own image, for image 
meant money. So the owners fired 
young Nesnej although the sheep 
loved him. 

The owners persuaded an old 
clergyman to clamp down on the 
sheep, which he did. Everyone 
was happy: the owners got richer 
as their image improved; the 
townspeople returned to their per- 
sonal oblivion; and young Nesnej 
got a better job. But the snowy - 
white sheep were unhappy and 
the mutton was very bad that win- 
ter.

MCA probes Chardin theory 
considers spiritual, physica 



by Barbara Harris 

One fundamental demand we 
make of any theory is that it ex- 
plain the facts. Until recently 
there have been isolated theories — 
scientific, psychological, sociolog- 
ical, and theological — but they 
often tended to ignore or discredit 
the knowledge of other fields. 
Teilhard de Chardin conceived an 
all-encompassing theory which 
has created a revolution in mod- 
ern thought. All intellectuals, 
both in science and in the hu- 
manities, should at least be famil- 
iar with his philosophy even if 
they don't agree with it. 

Recognizing the significance of 
this scientist and philosopher, 
MCA devoted last Sunday eve- 
ning's forum to the consideration 
of Teilhard de Chardin: scientist, 
philosopher, and Christian. Pro- 
fessor R. Wayne Kraft of Lehigh 
University spoke to the group. 
Who? 

Who was Teilhard de Chardin? 
He was a French Jesuit priest best 
known for his paleontological 
study of the Peking man. Aside 
from being a scientist, Teilhard 
was also a philosopher. His ideas, 
however, were ahead of his time, 
and the Roman Catholic Church 
forbade him to publish his philo- 
sophical works. Therefore, they 



were not published until after his 
death in 19SS. 

Basically, his theory is one of 
evolution. But it is more than 
mere biological evolution. Accord- 
ing to Chardin, everything — from 
the most primitive bit of primordi- 
al matter, to man — has two as- 
pects: the "without" and the 
•within." The "without" is that 
material part of nature which can 
be measured. But in addition, 
every bit of matter also has a 
"within" or inner nature. In the 
simpler forms of nature, such as 
atoms, this "within" is not appar- 
ent. 

Chardin establishes what he 
calls "the Law of Complexity Con- 
sciousness." According to this law, 
there is radial energy which caus- 
es attraction between particles re- 
sulting in the ability of more com- 
plex things to survive. He evalu- 
ates complexity by two criteria: 
the number of elements and the 
arrangement or links between 
them. The more complex some- 
thing is, the more "within" it has, 
and therefore the more stable it 
is. 

Chardin envisions four stages of 
evolution. First is '"cosmogenesis:" 
primordial matter aggregates to 
form elements, stars, planets, and 
all forms of nonliving matter by

THE ALTAR ALTERED — Acoordinc to unofficial sources the 
chancel of the Chapel will soon be undergoing some renovation. 
As it is understood the alter will be moved forward and made 
free-standing. A carved wooden screen will be placed in back 
of the altar across the chancel and the organ and the choir will be 
positioned behind it. Chaplain 
approached on the subject. 



an ever-increasing process of 
"centrated complexity." Finally 
complexity has become so great 
that the "within" is intense 
enough to form a new state in 
which there is awareness, life. 
This familiar part of evolution 
Chardin calls "biogenesis." Evo- 
lution continues as cells aggregate 
to form multicellular organisms. 
It not only diversifies but also ad- 
vances. 

Chardin judges the advance- 
ment of a form of life by its de- 
gree of consciousness, or aware- 
ness, as evidenced by the nervous 
system. Finally a peak of con- 
sciousness is reached in man 
which starts a new kind of evolu- 
tion: "noogenesis," the evolution of 
the mind. In man the mind and 
"within" dominate the "without." 
Omega point 

At first there was divergence, 
but just as one peak in "biogene- 
sis" made a breakthrough, so one 
peak in "noogenesis" made a 
breakthrough that will carry man 
and evolution to their final goal — 
union with the "Omega Point." 
According to Chardin, Jesus Christ 
was that breakthrough. 

The "Omega Point," however, is 
identical with the "Alpha Point," 
that is, the beginning of all. This 
central point is what Chardin calls 
God. God is the center that radi- 
ates the energy which causes 
things to come together. Chardin 
calls this energy God's love. Thus, 
God has created a universe which 
becomes more and more diffuse. 
But his radial energy of love 
draws all things back to Himself. 
He is all-pervading and yet cen- 
tral. 

According to Dr. Kraft. "Like 
many mathematical functions in 
the vicinity of a critical point (viz. 
— tangent of an angle between 89' 
and 91') we see that plus Infinity 
merges imperceptibly with minus 
infinity at the Omega Point." Evo- 
lution lakes a circular path, first 
becoming very diffuse then be- 
coming more complex (cosmo- 
genesis), then more aware (bio- 
genesis), then more self-conscious 
(noogenesis), then more spiritual 
(Christogenesis) until finally it 
merges again with God (the 
Omega Point). Only when man 
recognizes his destiny and accepts 
God's law of love will he achieve 
final union with the Omega Point. 



Sokaris exhibition opens; 
colors illustrate moods 



History speakers provide insights, 
discuss facets of graduate study 



Last Wednesday an unfortunat- 
ely small number of students had 
many questions about graduate 
study answered, as Phi Alpha 
Theta hosted three Muhlenberg 
graduates in a program that might 
have been titled "the hows of 
graduate study." Wilson DeWald 
C64) attended the University of 
Pennsylvania and is currently 
teaching history at the Philadel- 
phia College of Textiles and Sci- 
ence while completing his work 
for his Ph.D. George Franz C64) 
attended Rutgers University and 
is now doing research in the 
Philadelphia area in preparation 
for writing his thesis. Malcolm 
Gross ('62) received his law de- 
gree from Villanova and is now 
practicing with the firm of Bremin 
and Gross. 

The program was directed at po- 
tential graduate students in history 
and law but many of the remarks 
made seemed pertinent to almost 
all areas of study. 

All three speakers stressed that 
graduate work is not the same as 



undergraduate particularly at a 
small liberal arts college like Muh- 
lenberg. In graduate school you 
are much more on your own; fre- 
quently you do not have nearly as 
close contact with the professors; 
you tend to become restricted or 
stagnant because almost all your 
friends are pursuing the same goal 
in the same area that you are, and 
there is not the cosmopolitan at- 
mosphere of an undergraduate life. 
DeWald stated that too often stu- 
dents expect too much out of grad- 
uate school. It can be a marvelous 
experience but you must have the 
utmost devotion because what you 
get out of it will depend on what 
you put into it. 

Malcolm Gross stated that law 
school provides an entirely differ- 
ent discipline of study. All cour- 
ses are taught on the case method 
approach with no lectures. The 
class consists of student discussion 
and professor interrogation of the 
student aimed at developing logical 
patterns of thought. 



Frazer and DeWald mentioned 
that it would be wise to carefully 
examine the graduate school's pro- 
gram in respect to the time needed 
to complete the program, whether 
the school will give a masters de- 
gree or whether you must continue 
for a doctorate, how strong the 
department is in the area In which 
you intend to concentrate, and al- 
so what kind of financial assis- 
tance may be available. 

Frazer stated that for history 
majors there is not much financial 
aid available for the first year. If 
a teaching or research assistant- 
ship is offered one should take it. 
Not only will it be a valuable ex- 
perience in learning one's subject 
matter but it will provide a means 
to get acquainted with the faculty 
who will determine who will get 
grants. He also advised establish- 
ing an early friendship with sec- 
ond and third year students who

formation on shortcuts and. the

Thirty-four paintings created by 
Greek artist Spyros Sokaris are 
on exhibition now through Novem- 
ber 20 in the Union. 

Sokaris' works illustrate a 
change in mood as they progress 
from the multi-colored paintings 
of Greek landscape, representing 
peace and harmony, created from 
1958-62, to those of light blue and 
inky blue first showing stormy, 
destructive times and later depict- 
ing a time of new hope and peace 
for a new generation. 

Concerned with the threat of 
nuclear war to the world, the art- 
ist, a veteran of World War II who 
saw the devastation which Italy 
wrought in Greece, strives to ex- 
press the human life or the peace 
and love of Christ. 

By placing light in the back- 
ground as in Zarifl (The Dice), 



Sokaris shows the loss of hope in 
war. However, in Horos ( The 
Dance) with light in the fore- 
ground, the artist expresses a re- 
gaining of faith after war. 

In Hayiati (Balcony), the artist's 
favorite work, the supports of his 
balcony uphold the beginnings of 
a peaceful generation, a generation 
of more ideals and with a deeper 
sense of life. 

In Greece Sokaris is continuing 
his work in this mood with ". . . 
light blue figures and objects that 
are trying to escape from the dark- 
ness of today into the light of to- 
morrow." 

Anyone desiring to purchase a 
painting should contact Mrs. J. G. 
Voyatzis (434-8847) or Miss C. D. 
Elliot (434-1096), members of the 
Daughters of Penelope, sponsors 
of the exhibit.

SDS protest becomes sit-in 



Students for a Democratic Soci- 
ety (SDS) members figured to 
some extent in all the protests, but 
not all were organized by SDS. 

On three campuses — Princeton, 
Oberlin, and Wayne State in De- 
troit—police were brought in from 
outside to deal with the students. 
Although it was the appearance of 
city police on the University of 
Wisconsin campus that brought 
thousands of otherwise uncommit- 
ted students into the protest there, 
the police did not have the same 
effect this week. 

In the Detroit protest, there was 
a brief outbreak of violence on 
Wednesday. The students, return- 
ing for a second day to protest 
against the Fourth Annual Defense 
and Government Procurement 
Conference (in which businessmen 
heard Army and Air Force officers 
tell them "how to keep your share 
of defense business") tried to en- 
ter the building where the con- 
ference was being held. 

Certainly the best organized 
protest was the one at Oberlin, 
where students knew well before- 
hand what day the Navy recruiter 
was to arrive. Some of them drove 
out to the edge of town Thursday 
to meet him and escort him to the 
campus. There more than 100 stu- 
dents surrounded his car and kept 
him trapped inside for about four 
hours. 

When the recruiter finally tried 
to drive his way out of the pre- 
dicament, he succeeded only in 
ramming a newsman's car behind 
his. He was finally freed when 
local police and firemen drove the 
demonstrators away with teargas 
and water sprayed from fire hoses. 

At Harvard, about 300 Harvard 



and Radcliffe students sat in in 
the chemistry building outside the 
Dow recruiters' office. According 
to one observer, the recruiter "was 
effectively imprisoned there." 

The protest was organized by 
SDS, and it had originally been 
planned as a picketing demonstra- 
tion outside the building. When 
demonstrators arrived Wednesday 
morning, however, the protest be- 
came a sit-in. 

About 450 students, including 
the heads of the two major under- 
graduate political bodies, have 
turned in their bursar's cards to 
express complicity with the pro- 
test. 



Speaker policy 



the Board secretary, Negro play- 
wright, poet and social critic Le- 
Roi Jones is a "first-class hood." 

Signers of the petitions which 
are in sympathy with Koch are 
local citizens. Approximately 100 
employees of the Lehigh County 
Court House have put their names 
to a peUtion at that location, while 
124 persons have signed a similar 
paper at Grace Lutheran Church 
in Macungie. The Reverend Char- 
les V. Naugle of that church spoke 
of Jone's speech, "I feel an indi- 
vidual who has a tendency to cre- 
ate riots, burn and destroy is not 
worthy to be heard any place." 

There is an obvious gap to be 
bridged between the petitions 
which came out supporting the 
President's stand and those which 
are now circulating. However, 
Judge Koch feels that "in due time 
the board will make its "decision" 
on the "simple" issue.

prepared. The men, particularly, 
are confronted with three choices 
for their immediate future: they 
can go to graduate school if their 
marks qualify them; they can go 
into business; or they can enlist in

Whether he uses graduate school 
as a temporary dodge or goes im- 
mediately to work, almost every 
college man knows that he is 
destined to go into the service. 
Thus, his life is not completely his 
own. The military is almost as 
sure as death — no irony intended 
— and, for many, getting it over

to do. In addition, there is a pre-

for such men with leadership 
potential. Thus, Bargerstock and

ous, but the benefits are obvious. 

The Army and the Marine Corps 
receive equal time. They have 
formulated programs with the col- 
lege student in mind, and present 
an attractive pitch to anyone who 
is willing to listen. 

The reaction to these various re- 
cruiters is mixed. For the fresh- 
man and sophomore males, whose 
prospects of military service still 
seem rather distant, these wooden 
soldiers seem out of place. They 
are still enjoying the first tastes 
of academic freedom and are im- 
mediately repulsed by anyone 
wearing a uniform. 

The seniors, on the other hand, 
are seriously looking for a way to

perience and perhaps to plan for

Already this semester, the U. S.

Did you ever try to imagine 
what it would be like to meet 
some long-lost relatives? This 
summer Katie McClellan found 
out during a three-week visit to 
Germany, Austria, and Holland 
with her family. 

Traveling in a rented Mercedes- 
Benz which could barely squeeze 
through some narrow German 
streets, Katie and her family 
tracked down distant relations liv- 
ing in a tiny village in the Rhine 
Valley. 

"Completely overwhelming" 
were the words Katie used to de- 
scribe the reception they received 
when the whole town turned out 
to see "the relatives from Amer- 
ica." In honor of the celebration, 
a pig was slaughtered and prepar- 
ed and homemade sausage and 
bread were served. 

The houses in the town, built 
close to the street, are grouped to- 
gether while the farms surround 
the town. This system dates back 
to a time when grouping was 
necessary for protection. Indoor 
plumbling in the ancient houses is 
non-existent, making the old out- 
house a still-popular institution. 

"The job that wasn't a job" de- 
scribes Beth Molesworth's summer 
in Finland. Locating the "job" 
through the American Student In- 
formation Service, Beth was em- 
ployed by a young couple who ran 
a restaurant and, finding language 
important, wanted help in conver- 
sational English. Hence, Beth 
spent the summer living with the 
couple and their baby daughter 
and merely "conversing." 

"Finnish men have a high opin- 
ion of themselves," Beth stated 
rather emphatically. For example, 
they would never even consider 
helping with the dishes, and in 
general, they place women in a 
secondary position. 

Beth also noticed the reticence 
of the Finnish people. She ex- 
plained that the young people with 
whom she lived showed no affec- 
tion toward each other nor did 
they ever kiss their baby girl.

Rather they are shy and careful 
to hide their emotions. 

A voyage on the Queen Mary 

proved disillusioning to senior 
roommates Sheila Taenzler and 
Marilyn Jones, who stated in uni- 
son, "We weren't impressed." A 
tiny, narrow room and cold, rainy 
weather added to the misery. 
Sheila summed up the sea journey 
in four words: "I was just bored." 
Whirlwind tour 

Once on dry land, the girls took 
a whirlwind tour of Europe with 
a fourteen - member American 
group consisting mostly of South- 
erners. The group experienced a 
vivid and remarkable study in 
contrasts while crossing from Aus- 
tria to Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia, 
Sheila and Marilyn said, is a "pre- 
fab-looking" country with heavy 
industry, a low standard of living, 
and farm animals still working the 
land. Austria, though, is a pic- 
turesque country of beautiful 
scenery and flourishing farms. 

To the Muhlenberg tourists 
France was almost as disappoint- 
ing as the Queen Mary. Marilyn 
indignantly described an incident 
in a French hotel. Each person 
was assigned a napkin which fit 
into a numbered napkin ring. To 
the irritation of the waiter, 
Marilyn dared to forget her num- 
ber, and the angry waiter there- 
after maintained a superior atti- 
tude toward her. 

One person who stayed away 
from the tourist attractions (and 
thus, perhaps, the disillusion- 
ments) is Margaret Gatter. She 
attributes her courage to strike out 



on her own to her roommate, 
Nancy Straky, who drove through 
Europe in the summer of 1966. 

Margaret's traveling companion 
for her three months abroad was 
Glnny Ford, a former Muhlenberg 
coed who has been studying in 
Vienna. The duo did their travel- 
ing and sleeping in a VW equipped 
with curtains. Camping places, 
said Margaret, are in the most 
beautiful spots, and there is an 
all-night guard on duty to allevi- 
ate the fears of campers. 
Hitching yields friends 

Margaret found the people 
friendly and relaxed. People 
aren't categorized, she stated. 
Neither ages nor names are im- 
portant. The people are interested 
only in knowing you, the person. 
Illustrating Margaret's point is an 
incident which occurred toward 
the end of her travels. A little low 
on cash, Ginny and Margaret de- 
cided to hitchhike (since everyone 
does it) to Amsterdam. A man 
and his wife picked them up, and 
after hearing about their lack of 
money, took them home for din- 
diner. After dinner, their son 
drove them to their destination in 
Amsterdam. 

"Just fantastic" was how Mar- 
garet described a young peoples' 
beach in Italy. Like American 
parties, guitar playing was pre- 
valent (both American and Italian 
songs) but the terrific American 
pressure for "pairing off" was ab- 
sent. There is no pressure to get 
married right away just as there's 
no pressure to finish schooling in 
a set number of years.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Swarthmore upset 



from pag* 8 

four out of seven passes for 59 
yards and the touchdown as Tom 
McClaughlin caught the seven 
yard TD pass. McGurdy's kick 
missed, and with 2:40 left in the 
third period, Swarthmore trailed 
30-25. 

On their own 29 late in the 
quarter, the Mules made an error 
which almost cost them the game. 
On a second and eight situation, 
Henry rolled out to pass. Rushed 
hard by the Quaker defensive line, 
his pass fell short and was inter- 
cepted by Craig Martin on the 
Berg 19. Three plays later, Dick 
Kamen plunged into the end zone 
from the Mules' three. McGurdy's 
kick was surprisingly good and 
things looked bad for the Mules 
as they trailed 32-30 at the start 
of the final period'. 

The determined Muhlenberg 
squad bounced right back to score 
on their next series of downs. A 
29 yard pass from Henry to Saeg- 
er and a 31 yard run by Bennett 
gave Berg a first down on the 
Quaker seven. With 13:30 left in 
the game, Henry rolled out and 
drove into the end zone for the go 
ahead tally. The conversion at- 
tempt failed and the score stood at 
36-32. 

A tremendous punt by Harding 
gave the Garnets possession on 
their own one with 4:15 to play. 
Summerton hit three straight 
passes to advance the pigskin to 
the Swarthmore 46. At this point, 
the Quakers were moving well and 
a time-consuming drive would 
give them the game if they could 
score. The grim spectre of the 
Dickinson game flashed through 
the minds of the Berg fans. But 
victory was not to be denied the 
Mules as Paul Werrell picked off 
an errant Summerton pass, his 
fifth interception of the season, 
and ran it 50 yards to the Swarth- 
more nine. Three plays later 



Henry scored from the one on his 
patented roll-out and run. Lee 
Seras' kick was good and Muhlen- 
berg had assured a 43-32 victory 
with :25 left in the game. 

The Mules outgained Swarth- 
more on the ground 215-79, a 
tribute to Berg's fine defense . . . 
Gordy Bennett was Berg's lead- 
ing ground gainer with 64 yards 
on 13 carries; . . . Passing, Henry 
was eight for 22 for 131 yards and 
Summerton was 15 for 28 for 260 
yards . . . The Mules lost 98 yards 
on penalties . . . The loss of Mark 
Hastie, Muhlenberg's leading pass 
catcher, was compensated by the 
presence of Tom Saeger in the 
lineup. 



Hockey team tops Drexel 
but E-town secures 1-1 tie 

by Sue Mensch 

Frustration was the name of the game last week as the hockey team played Elizabeth- 
town to a 1 - 1 tie. Seeming to dominate the first half, Berg got its goal on a drive by 
Sue Strimmel. The E-town girls came back in the second half like a bolt of lightning. In the 
first few minutes their forward li ne ra c ed 50 yards, passed our defe nse, and put the ball 
in the cage. This scoring play was 



executed so fast that many weren't 
sure what had happened. Both 
teams fought hard, but the rest of 
the game consisted of turnovers. 

In spite of many storming at- 
tempts and several corners, Muhl- 
enberg's forward line did not seem 
to be able to push the ball the last 
few feet. Miss Hecht attributed

movie. 

Don't Look Back presents 
the Dylan fan with another media 
through which he can come to 
know Dylan. At times I found my- 
self excited by a song which I had 
seen him perform and especially 
by the moments in which his per- 
sonality broke through for me. 
Any fan would enjoy the movie, if 
only to see it for the sake of the 
subject alone. Dylan's many- 
faceted personality will never 
cease to captivate people. Penne- 
baker's technique is valid for the 
type of film that DONT LOOK 
BACK is. He gets right down to 
the "nitty gritty." 

As for the merits of the film for 
a non-fan, it is difficult for me to 
say. For some the film failed, since 
I observed a number of people 
walk out. But, for others, I think 
that DONT LOOK BACK is a 
reasonably valid introduction to 
Bob Dylan. At least it is as rea- 
sonably valid as any commercial 
film can be about a person who is 



considered by some to be a con- 
temporary genius, or for that mat- 
ter as valid as any film can be 
which attempts to capture the es- 
sence of any person. One must 
realize that Pennebaker has only 
shown us "another side of Bob 
Dylan" and certainly not the only 
side. As in the story of the blind 
men and the elephant, one must 
experience more than one portion 
of something or someone in order 
to get a meaningful picture.

light of the fact that even the 
spectators were excited enough to 
stand through a light rain near 
the end of the game. 

The Muhlenberg team traveled 
to Drexel Saturday for the all- 
college tournament. Although Miss 
Hecht had high hopes for two or 
three of our girls, no one was se- 
lected to return. There are sev- 
eral reasons for this. First, the 
chosen girls must have been able 
to return Sunday and the two fol- 
lowing weekends. Berg's most 
likely candidates either could not 
go Saturday or were unable to 
return. 

Five teams are selected. Since 
East Stroudsburg, Ursinus, and 
West Chester each send a team, 
there are probably only two 
chances left at each position. 
Muhlenberg does well against 
teams of similar calibre, but it can- 
not compete with physical educa- 
tion majors. Finally, although few 
realize it, Philadelphia is the cen- 
ter for hockey in the U.S., and 
the competition is rough. 

The hockey team ended its un- 
defeated season with a record of 
six wins and one tie. Our women- 
tallied 26 goals compared to three 
for their opponents. Half of our 
total was provided by the one- 
two punch of center Sally Barbour 
(8) and left inner Sarah Sehaffner 
(5). Sue Strimel took third honors 
with four.

Mules bounce back to crunch big Garnet 43-32; 
dazzling offensive performance brings grid victory 




Well, sports fans (I know you're 
out there somewhere) , for those of 
you who weren't among the few 
stalwart Muhlenberg rooters or 
who didn't huddle around your 
wirelesses to hear last Saturday's 
game, I feel it is my duty to Inform 
that Muhlenberg's amazing foot- 
ball team played the best game of 
any team in the last 20 years, beat- 
ing heavily favored Swarthmore, 
43-32. 

Memory suppressed 

But optimism ran so high on 
the Muhlenberg front that the 
band couldn't muster 20 members 
to travel to the Philadelphia su- 
burb to play at halfUme. Nor did 
Toni Szamski's Union Board even 
try to organize a charter bus for 
this epic encounter. It seemed as 
though no one wanted to broach 
the subject of the game for fear 
of recalling memories of last year's 
34-8 debacle. 

And for the first 15 minutes the 
Mule team seemed to warrant 
every bit of that doubt as their de- 
fense couldn't stop the Garnet and 
the offense couldn't retaliate. The 
result was that Swarthmore rode 
a 19-0 advantage into the second 
period. But, eureka, something 
happened to the team. Some great 
awakening came about and dispite 
several infractions, the Mules 
scored 30 points (that's right, 
count 'em) in a row to take a 30- 
19 lead over the stunned Quakers 
mid-way through the third quar- 
ter. But mainly by way of the 
passing of Jon Summerton, who 
gained 260 yards in the air, the 
home team fought back to tem- 
porarily regain the lead at 32-30. 

Mules rally to win 

Leading his teammates on, Hen- 
ry, who lead the MAC in rushing 
and total offense going into Satur- 
day's game was not to be denied. 
The senior quarterback scored 
twice and Lee Seras' kick gave 
Muhlenberg a total of 43 points 
and a most impressive victory, go- 
ing away. 

Most important, the overall team 
effort, lead by Henry, freshman 
Randy Uhrich, who scored two 
touchdowns, six extra points, and 
made several key tackles, and the 
whole offensive line, should be 
commende,d. The men of this 
year's squad have now proven that 
they can win the big one, beating 
the two toughest teams they faced. 
Now there should be nothing to 
stop them from having that win- 
ning season they've been denying 
themselves these last few years. 



by Paul 

A flred-up Muhlenberg football 
squad overcame a 19-0 first quar- 
ter deficit to cut down Swarth- 
more College last Saturday, 43-32. 
The victory was the most satisfy- 
ing of the season thus far for the 
Mules and one which saw the most 
points scored by a Muhlenberg 
team in almost 20 years. The game 
was a see-saw battle all the way, 
featuring two high powered of- 
fenses, but it was the defense 
which made the difference in the 
end. 

The first quarter was a night- 
mare for the Mules as Swarthmore 
put on the pressure and appeared 
to be running away with the ball 
game. While the Mules' offense 
was having its troubles, the Gar- 



nets powerful attack gave the de- 
fense plenty to worry about. Jon 
Summerton, Swart hm ore's senior 
quarterback,' completed three of 
three passes for 113 yards, and two 
touchdowns as the Garnets stun- 
ned Berg for three quick scores 
before the first period had even 
ended. 

Turning point 

From the second quarter on- 
ward, the game took on a totally 
different character. The turning 
point came at the very beginning 
of the period. Stalled on their own 
35 by a stiff Mule defense, the 
Garnet punted. Dave Yoder re- 
ceived the ball on his 20 and gal- 
loped 52 yards to the Quaker 28. 
Henry lugged the ball to the 15 
for a first down. From there, 



freshman Tom Saeger, who re- 
placed injured Mark Hastie in the 
starting lineup, scampered around 
end to score. Gordy Bennett's two 
point conversion attempt was halt- 
ed just short of the goal line but 
Mules Were on the scoreboard, 
trailing 19-6. 

Muhlenberg took possession once" 
more midway through the quar- 
ter. On first and ten from the 
Muhlenberg 33, Saeger snared a 
pitchout from Henry and romped 
34 yards to the Garnet 37. The 
Berg eleven was able to penetrate 
to the ten before the drive flound- 
ered. On fourth and goal from the 
ten, the Mules faked a field goal 
attempt. Before the befuddled 
Swarthmore defense could collect 
its wits, Henry had taken the snap 



PKT, AT0, SPE lead in l-M soccer; 
Greek stars smash profs in football 



The three leading teams of the 
football season jumped to the top 
of the standings in soccer in the 
first week of play. Only Phi Tau 
(3-0) and A TO (2-0-1) remain 
undefeated, while SPE (3-1) suf- 
fered its first loss at the hands of 
ATO, 4-0. 

Last Tuesday, as ATO defeat- 
ed SPE, 4-0, Rick Yeager and 
Bob Wertz each scored twice for 
ATO. Tim Weida and Randy Neu- 
bauer led the Doms to a 2-0 shut- 
out of PEP, and PKT defeated the 
Rokks, 2-0, with Ron North scor- 
ing twice for Phi Tau. 

Later in the week, ATO and the 
GDI tied, 1-1, with Wertz scoring 
again for ATO, and Mark Boshko 
for the freshmen. SPE edged the 
Rokks 1-0 with John MancineUi 
getting Sig Ep's lone goal. LXA 
defeated the Fugitives 2-1 and 
TKE lied the Fugitives 1-1, but 
individual scorers were not re- 
ported. SPE edged the freshmen 
Rokks 1-0, with Mancinelli once 
again getting the SPE goal. 

ATO edged LXA 3-2, as Wertz 
scored two and Ron Kimball one 
for ATO. Dave Sloan and Kurt 
Klinger got Lambda Chi's two. 
PKT shut out TKE 3-0: North, 
Bill Snover, and Ted Davis each 
tallied for Phi Tau. Finally, SPE 
won its third 1-0 victory, this time 
defeating the Doms. 

Tennis doubles have gotten un- 
der way, though the singles cham- 
pionship is yet to be played. Also, 
barring any real bad weather, the 
soccer season will be over before 
Thanksgiving, so that basketball 
should get under way immediately 
after the vacation. There will be 
a manager's meeting at 10 a.m.

Football team given lift 
by Jensen's exhortation 



A sidelight to Saturday's tre- 
mendous come-from-behind vic- 
tory involves a president and a 
baby. 

Much concern was expressed for 
the fate of Trainer Don Kichline's 
prematurely-born son of Friday 
night and the team was relieved to 
learn on Saturday that the young 
Kichline had survived. 

In addition to this uplifting, the 
team, down 19-14 at half, was met 
by President Eriing Jensen in the 
lockerroom. 

Coach Ray Whispell granted 
Jensen's unusual request to speak 



to the squad at this momentous 
time. In his remarks, the Presi- 
dent stated that when he arived 
the score was 19-0, and that what 
he had seen since that time con- 
vinced him that the Mules would 
go on to win. 

As you all know now, the team 
inspired by Jensen's words ful- 
filled his prophecy, and at the 
game's conclusion the game ball 
was presented to Coach Whispell 
who then presented it to Kich- 
line who accepted it for his new- 
born son. 



next Monday, November 6th. 

An undermanned faculty team 
fought back desperately, but 
dropped a close 13-6 decision to 
the IFC All-Stars. Everyone 
played in this titanic struggle of 
powerhouse non-teams. 

As is usual there was more con- 
troversy after the game than 
seemed warranted. The profs re- 
marked at the unethical rugged- 
ncss of some of their opponents, 
but insisted that this will not de- 
termine their final grades. The 
fraternity men countered by re- 
vealing that they played "give up" 
in order to let the faculty get on 
the scoreboard. 

Starring for the losers were 
quarterback Walter Loy, Ed Bal- 
drige, David Seamans, and Robert 
Stump.

from center and flipped a short 
sideline pass to Bennett who swept 
into the endzone. Randy Uhrich 
scored the two pointer on a pitch- 
out from Henry and Berg was 
right back in the ball game, behind 
by five, 19-14, at the half. 
Mules psyched 
Coming out onto the field for the 
third quarter, the Berg eleven 
showed a great deal of spirit. An 
avalanche of Mules threw Swarth- 
more's Al Thomas for a loss on the 
kick oft*. Three plays later, Dave 
Yoder intercepted a Summerton 
aerial to give Muhlenberg the ball 
on the Garnet 28. Ron Henry and 
company drove to the 19 but a 
fumble by Bennet turned the pig- 
skin over to Swarthmore on their 
18. 

The tough Berg defense and a 
clipping penalty combined to drive 
the Garnet back to their nine. 
A very poor quick kick gave 
the Mules possession on the little 
Quaker 32. Randy Uhrich made a 
fantastic baseball catch of Henry's 
pitchout and stunned the Swarth- 
more defense by skipping 32 yards 
for the TD. Uhrich foUowed his 
touchdown with the two pointer 
to put the Mules on the driver's 
seat, 22-19. 

Muhlenberg regained the ball 
three plays later on their 49. Ron 
Henry hit Saeger with a beautiful 
pass which carried to the Garnet 
19. A clipping penalty against 
Berg, one of many during the 
afternoon, moved the ball back to 
the 34. Henry quickly neutralized 
the penalty by driving to the two. 
Uhrich then cracked off guard to 
score from there. Taking the usual 
pitchout from Henry, Uhrich tal- 
lied the two point conversion, 
making the score 30-19. Berg ap- 
peared to be in complete control 
of the game. 

Flower power 

Unfortunately, the flower fel- 
lows were not about to roll over 
and play dead. Taking over after 
Uhrich's TD on their own 29, the 
little Quakers drove 71 yards in 
14 plays to score and put them- 
selves right back in the tussle. 
During the drive, Summerton hit

Ailing Mules fall to Drexel; 
injuries determine 3-1 loss 

by Peter Helwig 

Muhlenberg's powerful soccer team suffered its second 
setback of the season on Saturday, dropping a 3 - 1 decision 
to a strong, healthy Drexel team. The Dragons, fielding their 
entire starting line-up for the first time this sea son, had to 
come from behind to overtake the 



weary Mules in the final seven 
minutes of the game. 

The formerly devastating Berg 
line was further depleted by the 
loss of leading scorer Bruce Fech- 
nay, who suffered a severely 
bruised leg in the 41-minute fiasco 
at Dickinson on Wednesday. Half- 
back Al Sheer was forced to move 
up to forward position, and put 
the Mules out in front with a 
score from 30 feet out early in 
the first quarter. 

Dragons press 

Berg held on to a 1-0 lead for 
almost three periods until Doug 
Clark tallied for the Dragons late 
In the third quarter and followed 
by converting a deflected indirect 
kick about ten minutes later to 
make it 2-1. Finally Drexel'a ace 
Bill Nahri of Nigeria, playing his 
first game of the year at full 
strength, scored to wrap up the 
game with only four minutes left. 

The absence of Fechnay, Mike 



Stoudt, and Ron Tuma on the line 
also affected the halfback position, 
as Bill Appel was moved up from 
fullback to replace Sheer, who in 
turn was filling in at foreward. 
Standout Lee Krug still hadn't 
fully recovered from an injury 
sustained two weeks ago, but 
sophomore Herb Doller came on 
to take up some of the slack in 
the backfield. 

Spirit high 

Tony Rooklin had an excellent 
day in goal, fielding 17 saves, In- 
cluding a penalty kick. But it was 
the quick, precise passing game of 
Drexel that wore down the de- 
pleted Berg squad and finally 
made the difference. Coach Boyer 
was more than satisfied with his 
team's performance and repeated- 
ly commended their high morale 
and unrelenting hustle throughout 
the entire game. 

The Mules traveled to Dickin-

So m»oU to do, A.* UUU Urn* 



Two weeks cut off academic year 



The recently released 1968-69 
model of the academic calendar is 
essentially the same as the present 
year's, yet the new calendar con- 
tains a variety of somewhat signi- 
ficant modifications. Dean of the 
College Philip Secor observed that 
an extensive review of the aca- 
damic calendar had taken place 
on the faculty and administration 
level, but there is no basic change. 

The next college year will be 
abbreviated by nearly a week each 
semester. Classes begin on Sep- 
tember 16 for the fall semester and 
the last final exam of spring sem- 
ester will be given on May 24. An 
interesting change in the calendar 
is the concept of what Dr. Harold 
Stenger, head of the Academic 
Policy Committee which formulat- 
ed the

mented weeks." All the weeks in 
the semester will be full except 
in the cases in which the Thanks- 
giving and Easter vacations chop 
short a week. 

Reading Week will be preserved 
as it exists now. However, it will 
be shortened by one day. The 
reading period will run from Mon- 
day to Thursday; the first exam 
will be given on Friday. There is 
no essential change in Reading 
Week design. 

The 15 week semester can be 
broken down: 13 weeks and three 
days of classes; four days of read- 
ing week; and eight days of final 
exams. 

The deadline for making up in- 
completes and for withdrawing 
have been shortened. Legal with- 
drawals from courses must now be 



made before the first four weeks 
of the semester have been com- 
pleted. It is felt that the student 
should determine whether or not 
to drop a course before the first 
hourly Influences his decision. 

Graduate Record Examinations, 
which must be taken by all sopho- 
mores and seniors, will be given 
on Saturday, March 8. Previously, 
these exams had been given dur- 
ing the week, and had disrupted 
classes. The advanced Graduate 
Record Examinations will be 
scheduled by each department. 

Presently, there is no date set 
for advanced registration for the 
1988-69 year because the entire 
registration system is being revis- 
ed. The dales for preliminary reg- 
istration will be announced well in 
advance and widely publicized.

Times' Fronkel to speak 
at Centennial celebration 



In celebration of the centennial 
of the naming of Muhlenberg, a 
dinner will be held Wednesday, 
November 15, in the Garden Room, 
with New York Times White 
House correspondent Max Frankel 
delivering the evening's address. 

Frankel was former foreign cor- 
respondent for the Times and re- 
ported the Hungarian revolt In 
1958. He was in Cuba when the 
Bay of Pigs occured in 1961. From 
1957 until 1960, the 37 -year-old 
newsman was assigned to the 
limes' Moscow bureau and he 
traveled extensively throughout 
I he Soviet Union. 

Another newsman, William D. 
Reimert. President and Executive 
editor of the Call-Chronicle News- 
papers, will be master of cere- 
monies for the dinner. Reimert is 
also chairman of the Board of 
Trustees of Ursinus College. 

Jn planning the dinner, an at- 
tempt was made to formulate in- 
teraction between the college and 
the community. Thus it is appro- 
priate that the dinner is sponsored 
by the Muhlenberg Board of As- 
sociates which is an organization 
of the business, professional and 
civic leaders of the community 
who believe in the importance of 
higher education. 

In connection with the emphasis 
on college-community relations, a 
highlight of the dinner will be the 
unveiling of A History of Muhlen- 
berg College by Allentown citizen 



and Muhlenberg Professor Emeri- 
tus James E. Swain, who will be 
honored guest at the dinner. At 
this time, 234 copies of the regular 
edition of the book have been sold 
as well as 107 of the autographed 
special editions. 

Tickets for the 7:15 dinner are 
being sold at $8; however, a spe- 
cial discount of $4 is offered to 
faculty, students, and staff of the 
college. Of an expected 350 per- 
sons who will be in attendance, 
307 have purchased tickets to this 
date. Interested persons may pick 
up tickets to the dinner at the 
Union desk or in the Alumni 
House. Delta Phi Nu girls will be 
serving as hostesses for the event. 



Full schedule marks 
Frosh Parents' Day 

Freshman parents will have an- 
other opportunity to observe the 
Muhlenberg College scene on their 
day this Saturday. Much like 
Parents' Day, a full schedule of 
activities has been planned. 

From 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon, fac- 
ulty instructors and student and 
faculty advisors will be on hand 
to confer with the students and 
parents. Following this, lunch 
will be served in the Union, with 
President Erling N. Jensen deliv- 
ering the greetings.

Bach grandeur flourishes; 
'holy'enters Memorial Hall 



by Larry Kopp 

It might be suspected that a 
gymnasium is not the place for 
religious inspiration, yet, this was 
precisely the setting for the Chris- 
tian Reformation Festival held in 
Memorial Hall last Wednesday 
night. 

The Bach Choir of Bethlehem 
and the Philadelphia Chamber 
Symphony began the program

with "The Mass in B Minor." 
Oddly enough, as the great works 
of Bach unfolded with majesty and 
sonority, the gymnasium no long- 
er seemed inappropriate for glori- 
fying God, As a matter of fact, 
the choir formed an inverted cross, 
as it was perpendicularly split on 
either side of the center aisle of

who stressed that if Christianity is 
going to hold its own, then it is

(This statement was possibly di- 
rected towards the LeRoi Jones 
issue.) 

The concert in general was out- 
standing. The choir showed the 
best of intonation, diction, dyna- 
mics, breath control, and cohesive- 
ness, while the orchestra had 
equally good intonation, dynamics 
and cohesiveness, in addition to 
outstanding bowing of the first 
and second violin sections. At 
times, however, the choir and or- 
chestra did not seem to be to- 
gether. Also, balance was lacking 
during the fortissimo where the 
orchestra was drowned out. Per- 
haps the strangest occurances dur- 
ing the concert were the cres- 
c end os and decrescendos, entirely 
out of character with Bach. 

Apparently refusing to accept 
the poor acoustics of the gymnas- 
ium, the solo violinist forced the 
sound out of his instrument for the 
majority of the "E Minor Con- 
certo by Bach." The intonation and 
left-hand technique were superb, 
but this did not offset the rather 
mediocre bowing which resulted 
in poorly sustained tones. 

Regardless of these shortcom- 
ings, 2,000 people were very ap- 
preciative of the festival as shown 
by the standing ovation given to 
Ifor Jones, the conductor.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Biologist Vaughan 
enhances sciences 



by Kathryn ReiU 



To the average nun-science stu- 
dent and even to some non- 
biology students, the Muhlenberg 
biology professor is probably al- 
most non-existent. This professor 
comes to the campus each morn- 
ing in time for this morning class 
(one botany devotee appears every 
single morning before 7:30 a.m.!), 
goes straight to the third floor of 
the science building, and doesn't 
leave again until his last lab is 
over in the afternoon- Some may 
venture out for lunch; others eat 
lunch in the main biology office. 
Unfortunately most humanities 



and social science majors decide 
never again to set foot in a lab 
porta nee of the physical sciences 
in his Held and he will not accept 
as a major anyone who fails to 
make the grade in chemistry or 
physics. Under his influence the 
department emphasizes student 
research and independent study, 
while each department member 
carries on research of his own. 

In grading and returning tests, 
Dr. Vaughan is an admitted pro- 
crastinator. In his lectures a tone 
of informality and humor per- 



'Uncertainty of purpose' 
omens Once to Every Man 




by Nelvta Vo. 

When a brochure came out early 
this fall describing the many spe- 
cial events of this academic year, 
it listed an event on October 31 
at 4 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. in the 
Chapel of a drama called One To 
Every Man which would "high- 
light the 450th anniversary of the 
Reformation by Muhlenberg Col- 
lege and the Eastern Pennsylvania 
Synod of the Lutheran Church in 
America." The programs for the 
performance carried the rubric: 
Centennial Celebration of the 
Naming of Muhlenberg College. 
That kind of uncertainty of pur- 
pose seemed to be an omen for 
the actual production. 

I must admit It immediately, I 
had troubles when I saw the 
drama (or, was it, as it was some- 
times billed, a pageant?). It was 
uncertain why the narrator, Mr. 
James R. Kaye, who was also the 
writer and co-producer of the 
affair, came down the chapel aisle 
puffing a cigarette, stopped to 
stomp it out in front of us all, and 
then began to read the script: "In 
the Beginning . . ." If the pur- 
pose was to promote an informal, 
conversational tone, then why was 
Mr. Kaye in formal attire? I was 
uncertain why two early entrants, 
Mr. Oliver as Christ and Mr. Hart- 
man as St. Paul, were placed in the 
awkward position of moving back- 
ward, semi-ballet-like, to the area 



after fulfilling their science re- 
quirements, and they therefore 
miss the contact with the fascinat- 
ing individuals on the biology 
faculty. 

If you have a few minutes come 
on up to the third floor science 
building and take a look around 
up here, where biologists — pro- 
fesors and students alike - hide 
out. Assorted interesting displays 
will catch your eye: an aquar- 
ium in the zoology lab; rows of 
geraniums in the botany lab; 
soashells. stuffed birds, snakes 
(preserved) in the hall display 
cases. In the main office are 
the department's pets — gerbils or 
Chinese desert mice. More than 
likely there are two, three, or 
more members of the department 
assembled in the office discussing 
biology or politics or education. 
The sound of laughter punctuates 
the discussion. This group is close 
knit and the fraternal spirit soon 
rubs off on the majors in the de- 
partment. 

Ringleader of the whole scene is 
a "little Welshman with a Penn- 
sylvania Dutch accent" as he de- 
scribes himself. Dr. James 
Vaughan, a Muhlenberg graduate, 
received his M.S. and his Ph.D. 
from Lehigh University. In 
1956 he returned to teach at his 
alma mater, where Jie is now head 
of the department. A "modern" 
biologist, as opposed to a "clas- 
sical" biologist, he knows the im- 



Student-faculty 
encouraged by 

Because of minimal past partici- 
pation in the Union Board's 12.0 
Club, the club has recently been 
revised. Called "Speak-easy," the 
club's purpose has remained the 
same — to foster more contact be- 
tween Muhlenberg students, fac- 
ulty, and administration through 
informal meetings. 

12.0, which stood for the Col- 
lege's faculty -student ratio of 12 
to 1, encouraged teachers and stu- 
dents to meet in the snack bar 
over free coffee in order to engage 
in informal discussion. Speak- 
easy, in contrast, will hold sched- 
uled weekly discussions between 
students and a member of the ad- 
ministration or faculty who has 
been instrumental in current cam- 
pus issues. The meetings will be 
held on either Monday or Wednes- 
day at 4 p.m. The day and meet- 
ing room will be pre-announced, 
and coffee will be served each 



's first guest is Jo- 
seph Federico, assistant director of 
admissions, who will speak on 
Monday, November 13 at 4 p.m. 
in Room 108 of the Union. Federi- 
co will be willing to

'Speak-easy' 

among other things, admission 
policies, general make-up of the 
College's incoming classes, admis- 
sion quotas, and athletic recruit- 
ments. 

Dean Philip B. Secor, the sec- 
ond guest, will be available on 
Wednesday, November 29. The 
new dean is interested in bringing 
culturally disadvantaged students, 
both Negro and white, to Muhlen- 
berg to study. He was instru- 
mental in organizing this year's 
visiting scholar program, and is 
interested in encouraging coopera- 
tion between Muhlenberg and 
other colleges. 

Ellen Wolkov, Union Board 
member, related the Board's sin- 
cere hope that "students will ex- 
press an interest in Speak-easy 
and take advantage of this oppor- 
tunity for better 
munication."

of the altar while attempting to 
deliver their speeches. In the last 
scene of the drama, t was uncer- 
tain why I thought I heard a gun- 
shot blast offstage immediately 
after Bonhoeffer had been led off 
to be hanged. 

Now, if all of the evening's un- 
certainties had been as minor as 
these, it still could have been an 
excellent and worthwhile time. 
But, unfortunately, the whole pro- 
duction seemed to be unsure of 
what it wanted to do. 

The main strand of the presen- 
tation was a series of scenes about 
Rebels. The line-up was certainly 
impressive. If not a bit bewilder- 
ing: Christ, St. Paul, Huss, Luther, 
Melanchton, Patrick Henry, "Gen- 
eral Pete," John Brown, A. Lin- 
coln, Pres. F. A. Muhlenberg, Bon- 
hoeffer, and a closing quotation 
from JFK. It should be apparent 
that if one tried to put these fig- 
ures into one evening, one could 



predict some difficulty in present- 
ing something with unity. Some 
huge chronological jumps were in- 
evitable and some still more amaz- 
ing acrobatics of history and the- 
ology had to happen in order to 
try to get these people Into one 
pattern. The box all were placed 
In was labeled REBEL. But at 
one point, Mr. Kaye's script be- 
trayed its fizziness: it said refor- 
mation, rebellion and revolution- 
ary all in one mouthful. And it 
was quite evident that the reform- 
ing aspect of these men, let alone 
their rebellious attitude, was not 
the central thrust of the affair. 
What was emphasized in these fig- 
ures was their so-called revolu- 
tionary stance, their violence 
against the establishment. Cases in 
point: The passage chosen for 
Christ was from Mark 10: "I come 
not to bring peace, but a sword"; 
the "Here I stand" speech was the 
core of Luther, just when both

Comment 



Junior keys feasible . . . 

It would be naive to deny the fact that danger will arise 
with the elimination of Junior curfews, that is, the introduc- 
tion of keys for Junior women who have obtained parental 
consent. There is always danger for the girl who is outside 
in the late hours of the night. However, if a girl is going 
to be outside, it is a rare occasion when she is not escorted 
by a male or, at least, when she is not in the company of 
another female companion. One must, of course, assume that 
the male escort has so-called "honorable intentions." At the 
same time, it is obvious that an assault or attack upon a 
female student need not be reserved only for the after-curfew 
hours. This danger is prevalent during any hours of darkness. 

The danger that people tend to forget when considering the 
feasibility of Junior keys is the increased possibility of illegal 
entry to the dormitory by unauthorized persons. This is a 
threat to the security of those persons still inside the dormi- 
tory building. However, if an undesirable visitor wanted to 
enter the residence hall, he would probably observe that it is 
relatively easy to walk into the building before closing and 
then to hide in wait for the dormitory to close. Especially 
during the dinner hours each evening, the dormitories are 
vulnerable to illegal entry. Therefore, the chance that the 
distribution of keys will encourage or facilitate easier access 
to the dormitories is very small. 

William Graham Sumner has said that there is generally 
some danger connected with every activity for the betterment 
of conditions. "If we want to make tunnels, and to make them 
rapidly, we have to concentrate supplies of dynamite; danger 
results; we minimize it but we never get rid of it." Women's 
Council has minimized the above mentioned dangers in their 
present modification of the key program. The program does 
appear to be feasible. 



Toward bigger goals . . . 

The 1968-69 academic calendar outwardly has changed 
little. However, the final result is the product of much debate 
and compromise among members of the faculty and adminis- 
tration. There are two main areas in which the slight modi- 
fications in the calendar may portend further revisions in 
future years: 

1) The concept of a shorter semester is an attempt to cut 
back on unnecessary class time. How much time is needed 
to "cover" a subject varies greatly from subject to subject 
as does the means by which the subject can be covered. A 
more drastic cutback in the semester might have been 
made if it was not necessary that science and math courses 
need extended class time to cover the subject. This is a 
valid point. The semester can not actually be changed 
greatly unless the curriculum is also reshaped. For ex- 
ample, if one wanted to complete the first semester before 
the Christmas break, there would have to be a corres- 
ponding adjustment so that fewer courses could be taken 
in a shortened semester and more in a longer spring semes- 
ter. The current chopping of the semester and working 
out unfragmented weeks seem to be small steps toward a 
larger goal. 

Reading Week remains virtually untouched although it 
was nearly replaced by a system of staggered reading days 
and exam days. Therefore, the beginning of exams on 
Friday of Reading Week is somewhat of a compromise. 
Four days should still be more than adequate. However, 
the idea of Reading Week still continues to receive re- 
peated evaluation.

School 



The use of sexual suggestion and appeals to snobbery are two of the most potent 
weapons in the adman's arsenal. It is an amazing experience to see people buy a product, 
not for its efficacy, not for its value, but solely because the product has a high price tag 
or is displayed in a suggestive manner. 

How many of us have bought a product because of an appeal to snobbery (show me the 
person who denies this and I'll show you a liar) or because of an appeal to our vanity, 
especially in a sexual contest? The brash code of the advertisers permits them to make 
almost any claim they think is clever, regardless of the truth of the slogan. We have 
been so bombarded with advertising propaganda that our- tastes are, to a great extent, 
dictated to, instead of determined by, the consumer. If a company decides to market a 
product, the purchaser is told that the item will make him virile and attractive to girls — 
it is of little importance what the product actually is or does; it could be a cigarette, soda, 
or toothpaste. Just think of that for a minute — a toothpaste making a person sexually at- 
tracted to another. 

So many people want to be well liked that they fall easy prey to these advertising 
campaigns. There was a recent television show describing the cosmetic market. Products 
worth pennies were sold for $15 because no one would buy a product that was cheap, 
but many would buy a product with a high price. This is not the exception but the norm 
and it is an interesting insight into the average person's individuality. Man or woman, 
old or young, educated or uneducated, rich or poor, all were, in effect, duped by the images 
of sex and snobbery. 

Realizing this simple fact will enable us to recognize the absurd claims of Madison 
Avenue — buy Dribs — it has sex appeal — as the infantile and banal appeals to emotions 
that they are. 



Brutal jail term follows war protest- 
campus visitor gives own account 

Editor's note: The following demonstrators who had been ar- stay on the ground floor whic 



Editor's note: The following 
story is a first-hand account by 
21 -year-old Penny Honna of her 
arrest and jail term following the 
Washington March. An account of 
Miss Hanna's arrest which appear- 
ed in the Allentown Morning Call 
prompted senior Matt Nay thorn to 
00 to Washington and aid in her 
release from prison. Miss Hanna 
spent four days on the Muhlenberg 
campus two weeks ago and has 
submitted her story to the weekly 
as follows: 

The Sunday sit-in at the Penta- 
gon was somewhat different from 
that of Saturday night. By 6 a.m. 
most of the demonstrators had left, 
leaving less than 100 of us at the 
steps. We were immediately sur- 
rounded by MPs. For four hours 
there were no incidents, the press 
arrived, and we demonstrators sat 
and drank coffee, sang songs, and 
listened to speeches. At 10 how- 
ever, the mood changed. The MPs 
had started whisking people away 
to the nearby paddywagons. Their 
technique was clever. The MPs 
would inch forward, shove their 
feet underneath our bodies, and 
press their knees against our 
backs. A U.S. marshall would then 
poke us in the back with a billy- 
club, grab us by the shoulders, 
hair, or clothes, and pull us 
through the MP line. The charge, 
breaking an MP line. But who 
moved? Who broke the line? 
Those demonstrators who hap- 
pened to be sitting under the press 
platform, and therefore out of the 
photographer's view, were handled 
much more roughly than the rest 
of us. 

I refused to cooperate and went 
limp. Five marshalls, who would 
not give me their names or the 
nature of my arrest, dumped me 
into the paddywagon. Those of 
us arrested were then taken to 
the back of the Pentagon where 
we were photographed, searched, 
and charged. I was charged with 
resisting arrest and breaking an 
MP line. Going limp does not con- 
stitute resisting arrest on federal 
property. Obviously, the reasons 
for the arrests were fairly arbi- 
trary, and up to the individual 
marshalls. Others I talked to who 
also went limp were not charged 
with resisting arrest and everyone 
had remained stationary during 
the sit-in and had been dragged 
through the line by the marshalls. 

After we were charged, we were 
bussed to Occoquan Work Camp in 
Virginia for arraignment. Some 



demonstrators who had been ar- 
rested Saturday night were not 
arraigned until Wednesday, while 
those of us who were arrested be- 
tween 11 and noon Sunday went 
before the commissioner Monday 
afternoon. Most of the demon- 
strators paid their fines and were 
bussed back into Washington. 
Those of us, approximately 40 wo- 
men, who elected to serve time 
rather than pay the government 
for arresting us, were transferred 
to the Women's Detention Center 
of the D. C. House of Corrections. 
I arrived there at 6 p.m. and was 
locked in a small stuffy cubicle 
until 9:00. I was then "processed" 
and taken to an area with the 
other demonstrators. Evidently 
the Women's Detention Center had 
an overflow of prisoners. Demon- 
strators were kept separate from 
the other inmates and forced to 



stay on the ground floor which was 
inadequately small. Nine women 
had to sleep on the bare floor in 
a 6' by 8' cell without sweaters, 
coats, or blankets. 

We were treated like children. 
In order to take a shower, one had 
to wear a certain type of robe. 
Skirts and blouses, tucked in at 
the waist, were mandatory for 
breakfast, lunch, and dinner 
Books, the radio, record-player, 
and the television were allowed 
only at certain times. Bathroom 
privileges were lenient, unless 
you were locked in your cell, 
which meant you had to yell for 
several hours until a matron 
would let you out. One demon- 
strator, who refused to sweep up 
some ashes from the floor was 
dragged off to the lock-up block.

Letters to the Editor 



Progressiva 

To the Editor: 

The first Roman Catholic Mass 
celebrated on our campus in the 
Egner Memorial Chapel on Wed- 
nesday, November 1, was so mean- 
ingful to me that I want to thank 
all participants. As a thinking 
Catholic, I am proud of my chang- 
ing church — but also as a youth 
in today's world, I am impatient 
with the conservatism in Roman 
Catholicism. Occasions Uke this 
Mass on All Saints' Day reassure 
me that the reevaluation and re- 
form of the Vatican Council are 
effective; certainly, the church of 
fifty years ago was much too nar- 
row-minded to consider such a 
venture. And now we can enjoy 
it! 

I sincerely hope the Mass tenta- 
tively planned for December 8, 
Feast of the Immaculate Concep- 
tion, will be received as well.

To the Editor: 

I wish to call to your attention 
the presence of a "Sex-Mobile" at 
the Allentown Fair Grounds. This 
vehicle is used to attract customers 
and is advertised publicly on Al- 
lentown's radio station WAEB 
(790 KC AM) to a large listening 



audience which includes many 
young children who have very 
impressionable minds. The over 
emphasizing of sex by advertisers, 
as in the case of the "Sex-Mobile," 
is a major contributor to the moral 
decay of our award winning city. 

I hope you share in my belief 
that the presence of this "Sex- 
Mobile" seriously mars Allen- 
town's reputation of an AU-Amer- 
ican City.

Muhlenberg 19-0 at the end of 
quarter number one: the game is 
not over until quarter number four 
and Muhlenberg is not to be taken 
lightly by anyo.ie any more. 

Scoring forty-three points 
against Swarthmore is some feat 
and the team is to be congratulat- 
ed. Needless to say Berg has fared 
better than many expected for this

Students demonstrate 
with sit-ins, obstruction 



(CPS) — Students throughout 
the country this week sat-in, 
demonstrated and obstructed for 
a variety of causes. 

At Grambling College in Louisi- 
ana over 80% of the students 
struck the school in protest against 
the overemphasis on athletics 
there. The strike is still under 
way and a twelve man faculty 
committee has been appointed to 
mediate with the students. The 
president of the student body and 
the editor of the faculty news- 
paper were suspended Monday for 
their part in leading the strike. 

Students for a Democratic So- 
ciety had an active week, protest- 
ing CIA recruiting at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, secret CIA 
financing of research at Columbia, 
Marine recruiting at the Univer- 
sity of Iowa and classified re- 
search at the University of Mich- 
igan. And at the University of 
Pennsylvania a hundred sitting-in 
students Wednesday disrupted job 
interviews being carried out by 
both Dow Chemical Corporation, 
the makers of napalm, and the 
Central Intelligence Agency. 

At City College of New York 
a student strike broke out again 
as construction started again on a 
temporary building earlier block- 
ed by student protestors. 

The sit-in at the Maryland en- 
gineering building Monday delay- 
ed CIA recruiting for a day or so, 
but had little other effect. On 
Monday when a campus official 
read the Maryland Trespass Act to 
the demonstrators, they dispersed 
and on Thursday, their numbers 
depleted, they again broke up 
their sit-in under threat of arrest. 

In Ann Arbor a demonstration 
to protest secret research at the 
Willow Run laboratories of the 
University of Michigan turned 
into a teach-in when a number of 
university vice-presidents wel- 
comed the demonstrators to the 
administration building and used 
about eight hours of their time to 



the president of Central State Uni- 
versity of Ohio, from the office 
where he was trapped by students 
sympathetic to the labour union 
representing non-teaching univer- 
sity employees. "This action is 
clearly disrespectful of normal au- 
thority," said Greene County 
Sheriff Russell Bradley, "How- 
ever, I think most any president 
Ihese days knows this sort of thing 
is likely to happen on his campus." 



Puschock's Alpha . . . Perhaps

by Karin Giger 

The entrance of Thomas A. 
Puschock into the literary world 
last spring was heralded by Van- 
tage Press with the publication of 
Alpha . . . Perhaps, and the 
comment, "This is the first novel 
of a twenty-two-year-old writer 
of notable talent from whom more, 
much more, should be heard." Un-

DUCKS' LIFE — Muhlenberg ducks enjoy tranquil scene before 
winter sets in. The scene is shattered every sunny Sunday when 
little old ladles flock to force stole bread down the amiable birds'

bask in the sun, lay eggs in the quad, and Interrupt I-M softball

Crest tenders Negro poet; 
Hayden sees unity of man' 



by Rosemarie E. 

"And before I'll be a slave Ml 
be buried in my grave . . . Run- 
agate . . . Runagate . . ." 

Thus, the dark slender man, 
Robert Hayden, recent recipient of 
the Grand Prize for Poetry at the 



debate the issues involved. Among I First World Festival of Negro Arts 
the staff members involved in the in Dakar, Senegal, gave tongue to 



discussion was Professor Emeritu 
William G. Dow, who had been 
responsible for much of the classi- 
fied work acquired by the univer- 
sity in the post-war years. He was 
booed when he declared his pride 
in the part he had played "to 
strengthen my country's prowess 
and stature." About thirty faculty 
members supported student 
demonstrators and opposed the 
continuation of classified research, 
saying that secret research is alien 
to the character of the university 
The CCNY strike was about 
50% effective today as faculty ac- 
tion muddied issues and escalated 
tempers. Originally students had 
protested the building of a wooden 
shack on what they considered a 
scenic site on campus. When the 
administration had 49 of them ar- 
rested by outside police, about 
1500 met to protest the use of 
police. Then CCNY President 
Buell Gallagher alienated black 
students on the campus by saying 
that the shack was part of a pro- 
gram that was being undertaken 
to fulfill promises made to their 
organization Onyx. Edwin Fabre, 
the president of Onyx, repudiated 
the president's statement, saying 
that the only interest they had was 
in the continuation of the special 
education program for high-school 
students, and that they had no in- 
terest in the placement of tempor- 
ary structures. The strike con- 
tinues. 

Words of wisdom to cover the 
whole thing were found in Ohio, 
where sheriff's deputies were 
called in to rescue Harry Groves,

Langston Hughes, an authority 
on Negro poetry, describes Hay- 
den, a professor at Fisk University, 
Nashville, Tennessee, as "a re- 
markable craftsman, a striking 
sniper of words; his extraordinary 
talent makes itself known in every 
life . . ." 

And so it did. His gifted mouth 
gushed forth: from "Runagate, 
Runagate," the story of Harriet 
Tubman, an escaped slave who 
viewed "wanted" posters with her 
picture on them and smiled, un- 
able to read her own death war- 
rant, to "O Daedalus, Fly Away 
Home," the dancing tale of an old 
Negro's yen to return to his native 
land ("Do you remember Africa? 
O cleave the air, fly away home 
. . ."), Hayden captivated his 



Letters To the Editor 

I think a lot'°of 'credit should be 
given to quarterback Ron Henry 
who has done a great job in di- 
recting the offense. A real com- 
petitor and as complete an athlete 
as Berg has. Henry deserves all 
the acclaim one can bestow upon 
him. If he doesn't gain MAC hon- 
ors, the school will have reason to 
be more than a little disappointed.

small but attentive audience with 
balladry of the sad but true trials 
of the black men. 

"The Ballad of Nat Turner," 
echoed the angry young man's 
rebellion of 1831. "The Diver" 
plunged beneath the symbolic 
depths of the author's Interests in 
scuba-diving. "Full Moon" re- 
vealed the poet's belief in Bahai, 
a religion advocating the doctrines 
of Mirza Husayn Ali. "Electrical 
Storm" unfolded a tale of Hay- 
den's rather shocking brush with 
death, which was subsequently 
prevented by good luck (or was it 
a man's good faith?). "Monet's 
Water Lilies" described the seren- 
ity felt by the poet when he views 
the modern masterpiece. 

Humor was Injected into the 
readings as Hayden confessed he 
once went through a "mica pe- 
riod." Mica was his unusual utter- 
ance and "everything was prefixed 
with 'that stone' of a word." "This 
poem is baroque ... no not broke," 
he quipped. "And this poem might 
be classified as symbolic, for those 
of you who have taken a modern 
poetry course. Yet, really, it is just 
saying what it is saying," the 
funny, yet not funny, bespectacled 
man clarified. 

Hayden's works have appeared 
in numerous anthologies and liter- 
ary periodicals. His books include 
Selected Poems. Figure of Time, 
A Ballad of Remembrance, and A 
Heart Shape In the Past.

presently working on is vastly dif- 
ferent from his first, 1 would ven- 
ture to say that nothing, almost 
nothing, more should be heard 
from him. 

The author of this "simple story, 
directly, movingly told" is notable 
primarily because he Is a 1986 
graduate of Muhlenberg. Pus- 
chock was an English major and 
member of Tau Kappa Epsllon 
fraternity. One of his short stor- 
ies was published in a 1964 Ar- 
cade, and Alpha . . . Perhaps 
was written for a creative writing 
course at Muhlenberg. 

Unhappily, there is not much 
praise to be lavished on Puschock's 
book, since it is almost lacking in 
literary merit. Alpha . . . Per- 
haps emerges as an amateur at- 
tempt at writing which is only 
suitable for pre-teen and adoles- 
cent audiences. The discerning 
reader who searches for maturity 
and depth in literature will be 
sadly disappointed in alumnus 
Puschock's product. 

The novel concerns the life of 
Andy Radkey, a boy raised in a 
Pennsylvania coal-mining town. 
He is traced from early youth 
through high school and finally 
college. However, due to an over- 
ly simple style and lack of elabor- 
ation, no real insight is gained into 
the main character's personality. 

Puschock leaves nothing to the 
reader's imagination. In describ- 
ing a typical boy's play, every- 
thing is spelled out: "Crockies 
were big marbles. In the spring 
the boys played marbles. Some- 
times they put them in a circle and 
took turns shooting at them. Most 
of the time they played chasers 
though. Chasers was better be- 
cause it was like a war. Andy 
always played chasers. He could 
never win when he put his 
marbles in a circle." This para- 
graph is typical of the tone 
throughout the entire book. The 
style is lacking in any poetic or 
creative description. Few images 
are evoked; no emotion is aroused. 

The plot does have potential. 
Andy is pushed into natural sci- 
ences by a materialistic mother, 
he finds solace in the love of a 
young girl, and when his sweet- 
heart is killed, Andy rejects God. 
Yet none of these themes are fully 
developed. Instead, a superficial 
account is given. The result is a 
trite story, told in a direct but 
never outstanding manner. 

The redeeming factor in the 
book is applicable only to the 
Muhlenberg student, and the au- 
thor does not intend for this as- 
pect to amuse the reader, yet It 
does. Chapter Four of Alpha . . . 



Slap-stick comedy 
tonight 



Perhaps describes Harris College, 
actually a thinly disguised Muh- 
lenberg. It is fairly obvious that 
Puschock is drawing material from 
his personal experience in college. 
For example, he writes, "One in- 
sulted Colonel Harris by not tak- 
ing off his dink when he passed 
the Colonel's statue that stood in 
front of the arts building." He 
also describes a certain fraternity, 
the fictitious Kappa Zetas, as al- 
ways wearing socks to classes. The 
"blue coats" in the cafeteria 
checked to see that only three 
liquids were taken at breakfast, 
and a description of the gym on 
Freshman Parents Day is certainly 
a description of Memorial Hall. 
There is even a coke machine in 
the basement of a classroom build- 
ing by the psychology department. 

Towards the end of the book 
certain realistic issues are raised, 
but again, no further inquiry is 
discussed. Andy asks his friends, 
"If He's real, why didn't He come 
down off the damned cross and do 
something?" Later, Andy feels 
middle-class guilt pangs for pre- 
marital sex. But although at the 
end Andy finds God and sees 
beauty in sex, the evolution of his 
insights is not presented. 

Puschock has some ideas, yet his 
work fails to present anything 
original, anything perceptive, any- 
thing lasting. 

If anyone is interested in read- 
ing Alpha . . . Perhaps, they 
are welcome to my copy. Unkind 
as it seems to an ex-Muhlenberg- 
er, it is not a novel I wish to keep 
on my book shelf.

The Ail-American City smiled

Jensen is happy, and so are 
many Allentonlans, because the 
"Mayor Council Plan A" for pro- 
gressive city government was 
adopted by the voters of the town, 
which, since 1913 has been ruled 
by the commission form of govern-

third-class city of this size.

Mayor Ray B. Bracy, a Democrat,

city councilmen were also elected,

Lehigh County went almost total-

Vos crificizes drama 



Itom pagt 3 

Protestant and Roman Catholic 
scholarship is now being imposed 
with the non-revolutionary role of 
the faithful priest; and the speech 
chosen for Lincoln was a fiery 
tirade about the military conscrip- 
tion of the slaves who were freed. 

Not only was the unity of the 
subject matter a bit hazy, but also, 
and more crucially, the dramatic 
approach to the material was shif- 
ty. Sometimes, we were given an 
extremely realistic, if not melo- 
dramatic, scene: Luther before the 
Bishop of Trier, and Bonhoeffer 
interrogated by a Nazi lieutenant. 
At other points, we were asked to 
imagine almost everything. We 
got the drama of General Pete 
throwing off his clerics to reveal 
his Revolutionary War uniform by 
means of the reading of a fourth- 
rate little verse. Was the tone 
reverent? Sometimes — Luther 
spoke with conviction. Was It flip- 
pant? Sometimes — about St. Paul, 
"let's just say he saw the light." 
And the Huss scene was such a 
melange of realistic and symbolic 
actions that amid all the gimmick- 
ry, who was listening to the words 
of the great martyr? 

The range of the music was still 
greater: Jesus Walked This Lone- 
some Valley, Dies Irae, Onward 
Christian Soldiers, and Follow the 
Drinkin' Gourd. And amid all the 
thousands of times "A Mighty 
Fortress" has been sung in the 
last some four hundred years, it 
would be doubtful that it could 
have been sung less meaningfully 
than it was in this affair and it is 
absolutely certain that the song 
had never before been used as a 
■Reprise." 

Now it is clear that cathedral 
drama (another name I saw in 
print) can employ a variety of 
media, not simply stolid, somber 
presentation. Murder in the Cath- 
edral, for example, exploits juxta- 
position very well in a wide range 
of moods and characterizations. 
But always two ingredients are 
in Eliot's drama which 
not very visible in much 
consistency in this evening: taste 
and unity. 

The range of competence of the 
participants made some still fur- 
ther discrepancies evident: from a 
professional Method actor to some 
very amateur student performers. 
Mr. Kaye read with clarity; Miss 
, director and co-producer, 
folk sod£s with sinipli - 
city; Mr. Halg, a New York actor, 
handled the Luther and Bonhoeffer 
with sensitivity (the audi- 
deflnitely responded to his 
c); Mr. Oliver, another New 
York actor who had the admittedly 
difficult assignment of playing 
Jesus Christ, Patrick Henry, and 
John Brown in one evening, left

He teaches Core II, Mole-

zoology, which he hopes to change 
from a "B.S. zoology course 
in miniature" to a concepts 
course with a laboratory em-

believes that an A.B. student 
should have not the detail of a 
B.S. course, but rather a solid 
foundation of principles and con- 
cepts which he can use to evaluate 
current advances in the field and 
an appreciation of what the biolo- 
gist does. When he reads a New 
York Times article on genetic con- 
trol, for example, he should have 
a firm enough background in what 
is known about the gene to cope 
with the moral and scientific is- 



most of his words in his throat; 
and Mr. Jeffries, local actor, put 
as much dignity as was possible 
into the confusing Huss scene, but 
one could sense that he too had 
trouble seeing how a placid speech 
about purple mountains of the first 
president of Muhlenberg qualified 
the man as a rebel, let alone a 
revolutionary. There were a dozen 
or more actors, and therefore, as 
the auction bills say, they are "too 
numerous to mention." 

A word about the music. Joseph 
Gulka as musical conductor and 
Ron Miller as organist attempted 
to do good work, but there just 
wasn't much, either in quantity or 
quality, to work with in the choir. 

In short, as I left, it was certain 
that a considerable amount of 
time, of effort, and of money had 
gone into the event. But did the 
evening actually catch, either in 
content or in spirit, either the 
Reformation or the hundredth an- 
niversary of the naming of the 
college? I'm not completely cer- 
tain about that. 



Harriers 
ose three 



The Muhlenberg College cross 
country team extended its 1967 
losing streak to eight straight 
meets last week by losing matches 
to Haverford, Urslnus and Leba- 
non Valley. 

The Berg harriers lost to Haver- 
ford and Ursinus in a double dual 
meet by identical scores, 15-50. All 
three squads ran against each 
other at the same time, but the 
meet was scored as two regular 
dual contests. Doug Henry was 
the first Muhlenberg runner to fi- 
nish in the match, covering the 
five mile course in 32:58. 

Lebanon Valley placed four of 
its runners in the flrst five posi- 
tions to rout the Mules 16-47. Hen- 
ry finished in fifth place, turning 
out 4.5 miles in 29:04. The only 
other Berg qualifiers were Grimes, 
bringing up ninth position In 30:31 
and Kurt Zweikel, finishing tenth 
in 31:39. 



Negroes gain city seats 



Itom ptgi 6 

twenty years. In Mississippi a 
segregationalist, John Bell Wil- 
liams, who supported Barry Gold- 
water in 1964 took the chief exec- 
utive's chair over his Republican 
opponent. 

Returns on the New York bond 
issues were not available at the 
time of this report, however, the 
Empire State voted against adopt- 
ing a new constitution. One com- 
mentator said this was a result of 
the fact that the new document 
contained no provisions to subsi- 
dize parochial schools. 

The City of San Francisco voted 
two to one against withdrawal 
from the war in Vietnam. Perhaps 
Johnson's policy got a boost which 
it needs. The results may have 
been different, had the question 
appeared on the ballot In an east- 
ern city. 

Boston's Louise Day Hicks was 
defeated in a non-partisan mayor - 
ality race. Mrs. Hick's advocated 
"neighborhood schools" and has 
been called everything from "a sly 
racist" to "Boston's Bull Connor." 

Richard Hatcher, a Negro who 
fought without the Democratic or- 
ganization's support in Gary, In- 



diana, defeated Republican Joseph 
B. Radigan. 

Cleveland's new Negro mayor, 
Carl B. Stokes, a Democrat, may 
face the fire if his Republican op- 
ponent, Seth C. Taft, grandson of 
President William Howard Taft, 
calls for a recount in the Ohio 
community's election results. It 
appears, however, that Stokes, the 
great-grandson of a slave will be 
Mayor of Cleveland. 

Philadelphia's James H. J. Tate 
held on to the mayor's seat in the 
"City of Brotherly Love," but not 
too firmly. D. A. Arlin Specter 
gave a good showing in his attempt 
to become the city's first Jewish 
mayor, but when all precincts had 
reported, Tate led by 11,000 votes. 

Thus, election day 1967 comes 
to a resounding end. The winners 
say "thank you," the losers plan 
for next year. 

And so, politics goes on. Former 
VP John Nance Garner died in 
Texas on Monday. The citizens of 
Bird Island declared total war on 
the United States. The Russians 
are celebrating the 50th anniver- 
sary of the Bolshevik Revolution. 
Long live democracy.

Mules face Dips 

OPPONENT: Franklin & Marshall Diplomats, Lancaster, Pa. 

HEAD COACH: George H. Storck, fifth season. His record at 
F&M Is 18-17-2. 

1966 RECORD: 3-3-2. including a 10-7 loss to Muhlenberg. 

1967 RECORD: 2-4; wins over Dickinson, 22-8, and Haverford 
last week, 47-0; losses to Johns Hopkins, 19-14, Swarth- 
more, 23-20, Carnegie-Mellon, 35-16, and Lycoming, 12-7. 

CO-CAPTAINS: Ross Boekenkroeger and BUI NUraki*. 

OFFENSE: F&M's offense Is built around its excellent linemen. 
They are of good size and execute well. They open good 
holes for the runners and protect the quarterback well on 
pass plays. The line is led by tight end Russ Boekenkroeger, 
the team's best blocker as well as an excellent receiver. 
Last year he was an Honorable Mention choice on the All- 
Pennsylvania Football Team. The split end is Rusty Ward 
who Is very fast and is F&M's deep man. The tackles are 
Paul Gucwas, 5'10" and 196 pounds, and Dave Lehman, 5'10" 
and 195 pounds. The guards are Bruce Singer, 511" and 202 
pounds and Ray Sanseverino. The center Is rugged Ed 
Gallagher, 6 1" and 207 pounds. The quarterback Is DJ 
Korns who has completed 52% of his passes. Rick Thomp- 
son is the wingback. He's small and a very capable receiver. 
Harold Dunbar is the halfback. He too is small but is 
F&M's leading rusher. The offensive backfleld is topped 
with fullback Al Stone, 6' and 230 pounds. In addition to 
his rugged ball-carrying, he is an excellent blocker. 

DEFENSE: F&M uses a 5-3 defense with a gool-sized line. 
The ends are Maynard Little and Bob Rlessig, 6'3" and 200 
pounds. The tackles are Earl Devaney, 6 1" and 218 pounds, 

and Stone. Andy Sipperly is the middle guard. The linebackers 
are led by Al DuBois. He was chosen last year as a line- 
backer on the second team Little All-Amerlcan Football 
Team. Bill Niarakla, 511" and 218 pounds, and Pete Carver 
are the other linebackers. In the defensive backfleld are 
Sam Long. Thompson, and Ward. 

OUTLOOK: Muhlenberg defeated Franklin & Marshall last 
year in a close ballgame, but chances are that the tables will 
be reversed on Saturday.

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Tfcmrfqr. Nor.mb.r 9, 1967 



Hobbled soccer team surprises tough Lafayette, Haverford 




In case you haven't realized it 
yet we are now in the middle of 
the professional football, ice hock- 
ey, soccer, and basketball season. 
Besides this multitude of varied 
sporting games, each sport boasts 
two teams, either fledgling or es- 
tablished. Now it seems that every 
jerkwater town from Sweetwater, 
Mississippi to Nicetown, North Da- 
kota can boast a "professional" 
athlete, and almost every Ameri- 
can "knows" someone who is a pro. 

Yet with this prolific growth of 
commercial sport into every nook 
and cranny of the mainland have 
we not let the cry for more and 
more deplete the quality of ath- 
letics? This year the National 
Hockey League has tried to get in 
on all this expansion business. 
It has created a junior version of 
itself which has been let alone by 
itself except for a few sporadic 
gate building encounters against 
the big fellas of the regular NHL. 

In basketball, too, this is a year 
of many new teams. The already 
established NBA has, in the threat 
of a new league, expanded by two 
more teams, San Diego Rockets 
and Seattle Supersonics. Besides 
this some guys with an awful lot of 
money to spend got together to 
stock eleven brand new teams to 
bring basketball to just about any 
place with two hoops inside a 
building with seats and created the 
state wide team, that has no real 
home court but nomadically trav- 
els the state for its home games. 

Kickball comes to USA 

As for soccer, there are two 
leagues in the USA, though many 
people didn't even know that there 
was one. 

But of all the sports that now 
are making the scene, football is 
the best overall in representation 
and parity. Football through the 
older NFL and the recently estab- 
lished AFL has spread the sport 
far and wide but has kept compe- 
tition keen. And through the 
young talent that appears in 
droves every year, it has managed 
to stock new teams that will fit 
into their respective leagues within 
a few years. 

But looking at the whole pic- 
ture, the expansion has both pro 
and con viewpoints. Since 
television has spread every kind of 
sport to almost every place, many 
cities have been eagerly awaiting 
their turn for the big leagues. Un- 
fortunately what they have been 
given in many cases is a disguised 
version of the minor league teams 
of the past. 

Talent too thin 

By increasing to 23 clubs pro 
basketball has spread itself too 
thin. The ABA is stocked with 
has-beens and who - are - theys. 
Even the NBA is weak with the 
Western Division virtually at the 
mercy of the powerful and dom- 
inating Eastern teams. Soccer is 
no better either. What the Ameri- 
can public gets as its dose of pro- 
fessional kickball is equivalent to 
Class A baseball on the world- 
wide soccer family. 

But on the other side there is 
football and hockey. As most 
people know, the AFL in its few 
short years has fought to gain a 
parity with its elder sister league, 
the NFL. And by way of the 
financially necessary merger, the 
two leagues have provided the 
vehicle and the team talent for 
just such an equality. In hockey 
strides are also being made to 



equalize the expansion teams with 
the older members. Already sev- 
eral of the younger squads have 
handled the older ones, as the 
Philadelphia Flyers successfully 
contained the usually powerful 
Montreal Canadians. 

Do not get me wrong though. 
Basically expansion is necessary 
for financial and popular success 
of a sport. But it is not in the 
best Interest of any athletic pre- 
sentation to bastardize or water 
down itself for mass consumption. 
It is quality that counts before 
quantity. Anyway, just how many 
people would want to see the Min- 
nesota Muskies play the Anaheim 
Amigos in Bloomington, Minn.?

After a surprisingly hard-fought 
1-0 victory over an underrated 
Lafayette College team last Wed- 
nesday, the Mules came back to 
play some of their best soccer of 
the year as they squelched strong 
Haverford College 3-2 last Satur- 
day at Muhlenberg. 

Mules nip Leopards 

Lafayette, whose poor record is 
deceiving, played the Mules even 
throughout the first half. Then, 
with 1:40 gone in the third period, 
freshman Bruce Fechnay took a 



short pass from Ed Gilroy and 
banged a ten-yarder which turned 
out to be all the Mules needed. 
From there on in, it was just a de- 
fensive struggle, with the Mules 
solid secondary spoiling a Leo- 
pard threat. 

Lee Krug, Pete Moriarity, Tom 
Derstine, Bob Preyss, and fresh- 
man Bill Appel sparkled on de- 
fense, while the always dependable 
Tony Rooklin made 17 saves at 
goalie. Freshman Fred Flothmier, 
starting his first varsity contest at 
outside right, also turned in an

Rugged Lycoming smashes Mules, 32-14; 
bruising second half turns tide of game 

by Peter Helwig 

And the rains came to the Lehigh Valley. It poured all Friday night and into the 
morning. And Coach Whispell said, "This is not good." The sun appeared in the bleak sky 
as thousands of EPSY's poured into Muhlenberg Field. But the Mules already knew — 
their stunting, shifting defense would be submerged in the flood. The offense would have 
to do the job just as they had done 



last week. 

And the offense did a job. They 
scored first by running backward 
into the end zone on a punt re- 
turn for -2 points. The defense 
managed to hold back the Warriors 
after kicking off from the 20, but 
the offensive unit had more tricks 
to perform. 

A submarine running game fail- 
ed to impress the Lycoming line, 
which had even less respect for 
John Harding, whose punt was 
struck down by Bill Curley on the 
Berg 36. Art Washington finally 
slipped in for the score, and the 
Mules were down 8-0. 

Comeback 

But the Henry magic had not 
disappeared in one week, and the 
senior quarterback came back to 
navigate his crew into the end- 
zone, carrying for the last five 
yards himself. As if that wasn't 
enough, Mark Hastie caught the 2- 
point conversion pass and the 
game was tied at 8-8. 

After freshman quarterback 
Steve Miller had put the Warriors 
back in front on a 26-yard touch- 
down pass to Ron Betts, Henry 
again fired the Berg offense to set 
up their final score of the after- 
noon. Momentarily stalled on the 
one yard line. Henry faked to 
Gordy Bennett and bounce-passed 
to Randy Uhrich, who gobbled up 
the ball and stepped into the end 
zone for the touchdown. Lee Seras 
missed what seemed an important 
PAT at the time, and the Mules 
had saved face again, evening the 
score at 14-14. 

Lycoming's game plan for the 
second half apparently included a 
little head-hunting, and suddenly 



their power offense had sprung the 
game wide open. Jugge Ward, the 
toughest fullback the Mules have 
seen all year, bored large holes in 
the defensive line, racking up 100 
yards in 20 carries for the day. 
Betts set up the first tally with a 
20-yard sprint, scoring seconds 
later to make it 20-14. 

Wet and wild 
After managing six offensive 
plays in the third period, the Mules 
were well rested for a late come- 
back. But Betts took a pitch from 
Miller and scampered nine soggy 
yards for another score to open the 
fourth quarter and pretty well ice 
the game for Lycoming. The 
crowning humiliation occured 
minutes later on -a double reverse 



where quarterback Miller some- 
how ended the play on the receiv- 
ing end of a 26-yard touchdown 
pass from defensive back Paul 
Haas. The effect of this was only 
excelled by Ron Henry's earlier in- 
jury, which had forced him to 
leave the game with 8:08 remain- 
ing. 

All in all, despite a few glaring 
errors, it wasn't a bad effort for 
the Mules against their first north- 
ern division opponent. Henry suf- 
fered a pinched nerve in his right 
arm, but will play in some capacity 
this Saturday at F & M. However, 
standouts Joe DiPanni and Randy 
Roorbach were both lost indefl- 
nately with a hip injury and a 
shoulder separation, respectively. 



impressive performance. 

Both teams were victims of a 
"whistle-happy" spree unlike any 
seen in many years, as the officials 
called 20 fouls on each team. The 
loss was the ninth for the Leopards 
against only two wins (but, amaz- 
ingly, eight of their losses have 
been by just a single goal). 
Gilroy scores goals 

A wet, cold, but thoroughly 
entertained Epsy Day crowd saw 
the Mules slip and slide their way 
through outclassed Haverford to 
achieve their 4-2 victory last Sat- 
urday. Ed Gilroy led the scoring 
parade with three goals and Floth- 
mier got the other. 

Gilroy opened up the scoring 
midway through the first period 
when he banged in a 14-yarder 
after an assist from Bruce Fech- 
ney. The same combination click- 
ed again in the last minute of the 
same period as Gilroy connected 
on an eight-yarder. Flothmier 
gave the Mules a 3-0 cushion when 
he scored after a short pass from 
Gilroy." 

Gilroy wrapped up his hat trick, 
and the Mules' scoring for the day. 
when he connected in the third 
quarter, again assisted by Fechnay. 
The Fords broke the ice in the 
same period when Ed Jones tallied 
two goals, but it was too little and 
too late against the strong Berg 
defense led by Lee Krug, Bill 
Appel, Al Sheer, and goalie 
Rooklin. 

The two victories were numbers 
eight and nine for Coach Boyer's 
sparklers against only two defeats.

Doms take over top spot in tennis; 
Phi Tau still unbeaten in l-M soccer 



The Doms and PEP took a rela- 
tively big lead in tennis with Alex 
Tompa leading the way. In the 
semi-finals. Bob Wacks (Rokks) 
was beaten by Tompa (Doms), and 
Bill Norville (PEP) beat Aaron 
Boxer (SPE). In the finals, Tompa 
defeated Norville to win the sing- 
les for the Doms. The final tennis 
scoring and bonus points now de- 
pends on the outcome of tennis 
doubles. 

Phi Kappa Tau was the only 
team to pick up two wins last week 
to run its record to 5-0-0. Both 
SPE and LXA lost one and tied 
one. and ATO tied two. Randy 
Neubauer and Ellis Stephens 
helped push the Doms past SPE 
and LXA in the standings by de- 



feating the Rokks, 2-0. The GDI 
then set down the Doms, 4-2, with 
scores by Bill Ralston, Bob KitUla, 
Tom Fister, and Mark Boscho. 
Neubauer again got two for the 
Doms. Phi Tau increased its lead 
by defeating Lambda Chi, 2-0, and 
the Fugitives, 2-1. Jim Strangfeld 
collected four of their goals, and 
Bill Snover added the fifth. Dean 
Marx scored for the Fugitives, the 
first goal scored against PKT 
goalie Jeff Schueler In five games. 

ATO picked up two ties last 
week: one against the Fugitives 
(2-2) and one against PEP (1-1). 
Bob Wertz did all of the scoring 
for ATO; Butch Bartler and Don 
Jones gave the Fugitives its two 
scores, and Barry Hill got PEP 



its tie off a cornerkick by Roger 
Rockower. Mike Ross picked up 
a win for PEP by scoring against 
the Fugitives, 1-0. TKE upset Sig 
Ep, 1-0, last Wednesday when Bill 
Schwenke got the only goal in the 
defensive game. The GDI and the 
Rokks tied, 2-2, with Borscho scor- 
ing for the GDI, and Rick Munzing 
and Gerry Goldstein for the Rokks. 
LXA and SPE tied on Monday, but 
no scores were reported. 

Golf matches must be played by 
Nov. 17th, or those remaining 
matches will be forfeited, and will 
not figure in the final scoring for 
the teams. Also, there will be a 
managers meeting next Monday at 
10 a.m. in the gym.

Warwick- Vernon combination 
shows first-rate entertainment 



Muhlenberg ■ College's second 
Big Name entertainer of the 
semester, Dionne Warwick, will 
appear in Memorial Hall Saturday 
night. The talented Negro female 
vocalist is making her first ap- 
pearance at Muhlenberg, backed 
by famed comedian Jackie Ver- 
non. 

Miss Warwick started her suc- 
cessful career as one of the top 
vocalists in the country with her 
million-selling hit, "Don't Make 
Me Over." 

Such hits as "I Just Don't Know 
What to do with Myself," "Anyone 
Who Had a Heart," "You'll Never 
Get to Heaven," and "Walk on 
By," which was one of the top five 
selling records in the world after 
its release, led up to her invitation 
to appear at the 1964 Cannes Tele- 
vision and Film Festival. 

Miss Warwick later appeared on 
every major television station in 
Great Britain, at the London Pala- | 
ilium, and also toured most of 
Europe, as well as having appear- 
ed on most major American tele- 
vision variety shows and in nu- 
merous nightclubs. 

Since then, she has released "Al- 
ways Something There to Remind 
Me," "Planes and Boats and 
Trains," and "Alfle," which was 



one of the Academy Award nomi- 
nations and carried off the Oscar 
for Best Song of the Year. 

All of the fraternities are having 
house parties on Friday night and 
mood parties Saturday. 

Lambda Chi Alpha has the 
"Fantastic Six" on Friday's agenda 
and "The Dark Side" for the party 
after the concert. 

Phi Ep has "Big D and the Red- 
coats" scheduled for Friday, with a 
party after the concert and a 
brunch Sunday. 

PKT is featuring "Joey and the 
Prophets," with parties before and 
after the concert. 

Sig Ep will feature "Stevie and 
the Starlighters" on Friday and a 
mood party after the concert. A 
buffet supper will follow the 
football game. 

The "Soul Clinic" will provide 
the beat for TKE's house party 
and football festivities are sched- 




Pax meets recruiter; 
no riot, no reaction

uled for Saturday, with a combo. 

The "Combinations" are at ATO 
to play, with parties after the 
game, before and during the con- 
cert. 



by Libby 

The Placement Office at 2333 
Liberty Street was the scene Mon- 
day of Muhlenberg's first incident 
of military recruitment reaction. 
At desks in adjoining rooms and 
within sight and easy speaking 
distance of each other sat Marine 
recruiter Captain Melville W. Col- 
lins Jr. and Pax representatives 
Paul Lawrence, Walter Moriarty 
and Ernest Overdorf. 

It was a busy day for both fac- 
tions. Captain Colins saw three 
students and Pax distributed in- 
formation to two, one of whom 
had not intended to visit the re- 
cruiter. 

There was no picketing, no 
shouting and certainly no violence. 
Charles Bargerstock, Placement 
Director, commented that it was 
a very peaceful and enjoyable 
day. Captain Collins and the Pax 
representatives traded viewpoints 
and chatted back and forth. 
Bargerstock mentioned that he 
thought the "demonstrators" 
were a little awed by the re- 
spect and cordiality they receiv-

to set up their booth, they were 
served coffee and tea and gener- 
ally made to feel at home. 

Captain Collins' reaction to the 
Pax representatives was that 
while he obviously did not agree 
with their point of view he did 
agree with their right to be there 
and he had more respect for those 
who take a definitive stand than 
for those who have no stand. 



In conversation after the 
demonstration Lawrence stated 
that the Pax representatives were 
not protesting the presence of re- 
cruiters and were not in any way 
seeking to prevent them from do- 
ing their job. The Pax group was 
"counter recruiting!" They want 
"to present the alternatives to 
military service not usually pre- 
sented, especially conscientious 
objection which is the legal alter- 
naUve and the one Pax advocates." 
Lawrence stressed that Monday's

Deferments menaced by Hershey: 
'reopen classification' of protestors 



by Walter Grant 

WASHINGTON (CPS) — Stu- 
dents who protest the war and the 



Frosh, parents reunited; 
value of day questioned 



by Cindy Sparks 

Armed with winter coats, boots 
and food, of course (they wouldn't 
dare come without that), parents 
invaded Muhlenberg campus Sat- 
urday for Freshman Parents Day 
1967. 

For faculty members the day 
included discussions with parents 
and students from 9:30 a.m. to 12 
noon in Memorial Hall. Reactions 
to these discussions varied as some 
instructors considered the program 
as an opportunity for developing 
good public relations, for reassur- 
ing parents about the significance 



of mid-semester grades or simply 
for extending common courtesy to 
the parents. 

To those freshman advisers and 
professors who had talked with 
their advisees or students previ- 
ously, the morning discussions 
were very meaningful. However, 
the value of the program to stu- 
dents was frequently questioned 
by faculty members who have 
large classes and therefore, could 
speak only briefly with each stu- 
dent's parents and by those who 
feel that problems in courses can

should be given only to individuals 
who are acting in the national in-

interfere with the military process 
are not acting in the national in-

Resolution 

Editor's note: The Sallowing is 
an excerpt from a resolution 
concerning protest of place- 
ment interviewers passed by 
the Middle Aflantic Placement 
Association: 

The Middle Atlantic Place- 
ment Association hereby affirms 
that in the best interests of stu- 
dents, colleges and employers, 
that: . . . 

Whereas, we recognize the 
rights of students to dissent. This 
right, however, carries with it the 
obligation and responsibility to 
respect the rights of others. . . . 
Therefore be It further resolved 
by this association that when in 
the process of interviewing on 'a 
college campus in the region cov- 
ered by the Middle Atlantic Place- 
ment Association, and when the 
due process of interviewing Is In- 
terrupted by a student demonstra- 
tion against any, one or all em- 
ployers interviewing, said employ- 
ers either singly or collectively 
may find it necessary, after due 
and proper consultation with the 
placement director, to discontinue 
interviewing until the disturbance 
has been corrected. This action 
shall be regarded as a practice to 
which any association member 
may subscribe.

Affiliate artist sings diverse program; 
Lenel histrionics fail to turn Paige 



by Peter Helwlg 

A ridiculously overdue assem- 
bly program was the occasion for 
Affiliate Artist Norman Paige's 
first encounter with a representa- 
tive cross-section of the Muhlen- 
berg student body last Friday 
morning. Paige took command of 
the rather blase gathering as he 
strode onto the Garden Room 
"stage" and immediately burst 
into a fetching selection from 
Bizet's french opera, Carmen. 

Paige delivered an abbreviated 
explanation of the interpretive 
role of the singer, and then re- 
called! the diverse emotional 
tableaux of Bizet's song by re- 
peating it, this time in English. He 
then reviewed a series of past ap- 
pearances before German, French, 
History and English classes, along 
with his "trial by heat if not by 
Are" earlier this year in the Sci- 
ence Auditorium. 



The next selection of the in- 
formal recital was an exquisitely 
fragile Schubert song, sung in 
flawless German and compliment- 
ed by a light dancing brook rip- 
pling through Ludwig Lenel's 
piano accompaniment. A Shakes- 
pearean song from As You Like 
It with music by Thomas Morely 
then introduced the bawdy theme 
of "love and spring and sex" 
which dominated the remainder of 
the program. This generated a 
great deal of enthusiasm, and was 
not hindered by a rather bass in- 
troductory chortle from baritone 
Don Peck. 

Paige returned to a slightly 
more subtle approach with a 
French pastoral love song from 
the seventeenth century. This at- 
mosphere persisted through the 
very smooth, legato performance 
In Italian of "If You Love Me," 



of organizations brought to Muh- 
lenberg's campus by the Placement 
Office. Each year various busines- 
ses, industries, government agen- 
cies, and graduate schools, in ad- 
dition to branches of the military, 
are invited by Charles Barger- 
stock, director of financial aid and 
placement, to send representatives 
to Muhlenberg. 

The purpose of having all of 
these people come on campus is 
to give seniors and underclassmen 
sufficient exposure to military, 
employment and graduate school 
opportunities. "We're not an em- 
ployment agency," Bargerstock 
states. The Placement Office tries 
to get each student to realize and 
to be certain of what he really 
wants to do after graduation. 

Most seniors take advantage of 
Placement Office services; last 
year, 217 out of 274 seniors regis- 
tered for placement. During in- 
terviews with Bargerstock. seniors 
discuss future plans. Both the 
Placement Office and Dean's Office 
give graduate school guidance. 
Military obligations for boys and 
marriage plans for girls are both 
considered when guidance is given 
concerning future employment. 

Each year approximately 140 to 
150 businesses, industries, and gov-

CONCERTS . . . 

Lafayette will sponsor a concert 
by Lili Kraus tonight at 8:30 p.m. 
in the John Milton Colton Chapel. 
A leading pianist, Miss Kraus has 
toured both in the United States 
and Europe. In 1967, she accom- 
plished what no other person had 
done in the recorded history of 
New York's musical life — she 
performed all 25 of the great 
Mozart concertos. 

The Ornette Coleman Trio and 
the Philadelphia Woodwind Quin- 
tet will appear at the Irvine Audi- 
torium, 34th and Spruce Streets, 
Philadelphia, on November 19. 
Sponsored by the Arts Council of 
the YM/YWHA, the Woodwind 
Quintet members all occupy the 
first chair of their respective sec- 
tions in the Philadelphia Or- 
chestra. The evening of jazz and 
classical music begins at 8:30 p.m. 
ART . . . 

Muhlenberg will open an exhi- 
bition of "American Painting of 
the '30's and '40's" November 21. 
One of IBM's traveling exhibits, 
it features contemporary artists 
such as Andrew Wyeth, Stuart 
Davis, and Grandma Moses. 
Media: oils, watercolor, and tem- 
pera. The paintings will be on ex- 
hibition through December 13. 



Two compositions of church 
music have recently been publish- 
ed by Ludwig Lenel, head of the 
music department. 

"Lord of Life," written for the 
Muhlenberg College Choir and 
published by Concordia Publish- 
ing House, consists of four songs 
for mixed chorus; high baritone, 
tenor, or soprano solo, and a harp 
or piano accompaniment. 

"When Christ Was Born" is an 
arrangement of a fifteenth cen- 
tury anonymous carol. "Mary, 
Mother, Come and See" is an 
adaptation of two anonymous car- 
ols composed around 1500 for the 
Lenten season. An Easter hymn, 
"Most Glorious Lord of Life," is 
the third selection; and the last is 
a ninth century Latin hymn, "Veni, 
Creator Spiritus." 

Lenel's second recent publica- 
tion, an arrangement of the well- 
known carol "Joy to the World," 
was printed by Chantry Music 
Press, Inc. at Wittenberg Univer- 
sity. 

The piece can be performed by 
a double choir with an organ or 
by a single choir with a brass 
quartet. The setting was written 
for Peter Sozio, who recorded it 
on an Epic record, "The Story of 
Christmas."

Council meeting spent 
prying group budgets 



In the lengthy, three and a half 
hour meeting of Student Council 
November 9, the process of re- 
viewing student activities budgets 
consumed most of the time. 

Budgets for WMUH, Arcade, 
and the art film festival were 
passed. The Lambda Epsllon Delta 
budget was tabled and the Young 
Republicans' budget was defeated. 

All activities requiring money 
from Student Council are to pre- 
sent a budget to Council before ac- 
quiring bills. The action of the 
Muhlenberg Ski Association pro- 
moted the following statement by 
Council: 

"The Muhlenberg Student 
Council hereby censures the Muh- 
lenberg Ski Association for irre- 
sponsible and premature spending 



of student funds. 

"Be advised that it is standard 
policy for all student organiza- 
tions to await approval of sub- 
mitted budgets before assuming 
financial obligations." 

The Ski Association had spent 
money for patches in accordance 
with the original Idea that the sale 
of the patches, included in the 
dues, would pay for both the 
patches and membership cards. 
When this failed to happen, they 
applied to Student Council for 
funds. 

Betsy Weller presented the new 
Junior Key proposal, and it was 
passed unanimously 13-0-0. The 
proposal will now be submitted to 
the Student Affairs Committee for 
further consideration. 



second piece describes Lenel as 
"one of the few composers of our 
time whose absolute mastery of 
craft enables his creative Imagina- 
tion to blend the significant ele- 
ments of tradition with the excite- 
ment and relevance of twentieth 
century idiom." 



College joins 
freedom fast 

Muhlenberg College will join 
colleges and universities through- 
out the country in a national 
Thanksgiving Fast for Freedom. 
Students are being asked to give 
up their evening meal on Monday, 
November 20, so that the money 
thus saved can be used to support 
a variety of projects working on 
civil rights and anti-poverty issues 
throughout the country. Partici- 
pation in the Fast for Freedom 
will be entirely voluntary. Stu- 
dents Interested In participating 
will sign sheets at the Union desk. 

This will be the sixth time that 
the nationally - coordinated Fast 
will be held on college campuses 
throughout the country. Coor- 
dinated by the U. S. National Stu- 
dent Association, the Fast last year 
involved an estimated 75,000 stu- 
dents at over 120 colleges and 
universities, and raised over 
$25,000. 



Seniors to apply 
for History of Ideas 

There has been a change in the 
selection of seniors for participa- 
tion in the History of Ideas course. 
Interested seniors must now sub- 
mit applications for the course. 
A cross-section will then be select- 
ed from the applicants by the fac- 
ulty teaching the course. Present- 
ly, Dr. Victor Johnson head of the 
History Department; Dr. Thomas 
Lohr, Professor of Psychology, and 
Dr. Harold Stenger, head of the 
English Department instruct the 
class. 

Formerly, the History of Ideas 
discussion course could only be en- 
tered by seniors receiving an invi- 
tation. The new system of selec- 
tion will go into effect for the 
spring semester.

Kipa animates language class, 
stresses responsible 'freedom' 



by Peter Helwig 

Every Monday, Wednesday, and 
Friday a Ukranian Professor of 
German and Russian makes the 
Muhlenberg scene to run through 
a schedule of four classes and nu- 
merous student conferences. A 
Ph.D. candidate at the University 
of Pennsylvania in Russo-German 
Literary Relations, Albert Kipa 
manages to pass his Tuesdays and 
Thursdays in similar fashion. 

Despite a grim awareness of the 
damage done to his native Ukraine 
during World War II, Kipa is 
thankful for the opportunity it 
afforded to become fluent in Ger- 
man and English in his early teens. 
Three years' residence with a 
German family enhanced his com- 
mand of the German language and 
immersed him in the rural culture 
of the country. 

Kipa's approach to the often 
rather lifeless elementary or "in- 
termediate" language course fav- 
ors the development of a feeling 
for the native culture and flavor 
of the language. He is not above 
breaking into English for a 
twenty-minute ramble on the 
Italian Renaissance or anything 
that is remotely germane to the 
text under examination. 

A penchant for shooting down 
linguistic novices in the classroom 
often conceals a sincere under- 
standing and typical small college 
accessability that also characterize 
his bookside method. 

A three-day-a-week existence 
on campus does not necessarily 
hamper one's awareness of col- 
lege affairs, however. A discussion 



Play to show 
Luther's life 

John Osborne's play Lather will 
be presented at tomorrow's as- 
sembly in the Science Auditorium 
at 10 a.m. Presented under the 
auspices of the MCA drama com- 
mittee, the play recently toured 
colleges and churches in the Allen- 
town area. 

John Pearce heads the cast, 
playing the role of Luther. Aaron 
Boxer plays the part of Staupltz, 
a monk and confident of Luther, 
and Sam Mendelsohn portrays 
Tetzel, an indulgence seUer. Glen 
Moyer serves as Cadjetan and 
Dudley Lewis as the Knight. The 
production is directed by Glen 
Moyer. 

The drama approaches Luther's 
life and his attitude toward the 
Catholic Church from a humanis- 
tic point of view. Osbom writes 
of a man who is trying to resolve 
his inner conflicts by talking and 
listening to others. 

Lather will not be presented in 
its entirety, but In four scenes. 
The first two scenes take place be- 
fore the posting of the 95 Theses 
and the last two following this 
event.

GERMAN MUGS — Kipa. Erhardt, Klesslnger. 



on academic freedom in German 
universities recently revived an 
Intermediate German class from 
the depths of Monday morning. 
Kipa explained that German stu- 
dents are granted total freedom, 
including the responsibility to 
judge their peers even in cases of 
murder involving students. 

The very evasive Idea of "re- 
sponsible" academic freedom was 
specifically defined by Kipa, who 
believes In maintaining a sane 
balance of opposing viewpoints by 
presenting both sides of an argu- 
ment. He feels that student 
ling of responsibilities like 

at 



Kipa expressed regret that local 
newspapers tend to emphasize 
controversial events to the exclu- 
sion of less sensational but ex- 
tremely significant developments 
like the "artist in residence" or 
Trexler Visiting Scholar pro- 
grams. With a conspicuous ab- 
sence of "flowers in his hair," 
Kipa lamented the news media's 
failure to make Allentonians 
aware that "love is also a four- 
letter word that is often heard on 
campus." 

The classroom experience with 
Albert Kipa is about as unique as 
learning German in America from 
a Ukranian who didn't even like 
Dr. Zhlvago (a la MGM).

Nowhere Man baffled, 
seeks meaning for life 



by PhUlp Hunt 

Last summer, John Lennon and 
Paul McCartney of the Beatles 
turned out a song entitled "No- 
where Man" which soon climbed 
to the number-one position on the 
popularity charts and tenaciously 
held that coveted position for sev- 
eral weeks. Significantly, the re- 
frain of that song goes like this: 

[the Nowhere Man] 
have a point of 

Knows not where he's going 
to. 

Isn't he a bit like you and me? 

The nowhere man is one of the 
most poignant denizens of our col- 
lege campuses. He has no idea of 
what he wants to make of his life 
other than the vague notion that 
he wants to make it fulfilling — to 
give it meaning. From this idea- 



listic outlook springs his tragic 
situation. 

This condition, although it 
manifests itself in many ways, is 
most obvious in the way it affects 
a student's studies. Having no 
goals, the nowhere man has chosen 
his major as a result of sheer 
whimsy, of parental pressure, or 
of cold, realistic expedience. His 
only identifiable goal is to muddle 
through and receive a passing 
grade. 

Nevertheless he urgently desires 
some reason for it all, something to 
give the struggle a sort of divine 
purpose. He feels that if he could 
only find a reason for life, be it 
another person, a cause, or an oc- 
cupation, he would enjoy his 
studies instead of finding them

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Thursday, N««.b., 16, 1967 



Comment 



Glof to publicity guff . . . 

Very fittingly, Moderator magazine has awarded the now 
famous Glof Award to college news bureaus in the Novem- 
ber issue. The Glof Award is extended for "general lack 
of moral fiber." 

Muhlenberg's publicity staff is easily rated with the 
leading college news bureaus in attaining Glof status. Mod- 
erator observes that these organizations are notorious for 
their ability to "salvage campus non-events from inevitable 
oblivion." The Muhlenberg publicity establishment exer- 
cised its expert talent excellently last week. Their big story 
of the week was that a company mistakenly sent a letter to 
Muhlenberg addressed to the College by a name the school 
was known as 100 years ago. This non-story received fine 
attention from the city paper. 

However, in a time when Muhlenberg desperately needs 
very positive publicity, not even a scrap of great perform- 
ances that the College's outstanding Affiliate Artist, Nor- 
man Paige, managed to leak out of the outside world. Only 
perverted reports by city paper reporters of controversial 
assembly speakers escape from the Muhlenberg bag. 

And so Muhlenberg's publicity bureau joins such not- 
able Glofs as Parsons College, Temple, and small Roman 
Catholic colleges. Now, back to the beat, Glofs. 



Parents' Day PTA . . . 

The day of irritated faculty members, unsatisfied parents, 
and dry propaganda has passed for another year. Freshman 
Parents' Day is over. This year's ordeal was even more vac- 
uous than usual without a home football game. The result 
was almost a fatal dose of pomp and oratory from a college 
trying desperately to show only the shiny shoe. For the 
parents' benefit, there was no mystery meat served in the 
Garden Room. 

The small college image must have been rudely shattered 
for many freshman parents when they stood in line to talk 
to a professor about mid-semester grades. The crushing blow 
must have come when they finally got to the professor and 
found that there was little chance that he knew the student. 
The faculty members could hardly be able to know indi- 
viduals from a large "intro" course at this stage of the game. 

The small college image is not a myth, but the way the 
faculty was staged in Memorial Hall just to joust with the 
parents about grades must not have secured many people to 
the side of small college-ism. In addition, college faculties 
do not enjoy being put on the spot. On top of that, what 
could be more refreshing for parents and students after the 
morning in Memorial Hall than a high sounding lecture from 
an administrator? 

Unfortunately, Muhlenberg's best selling point, informal- 
ity, did not return to campus again until Monday morning —

Allentown, Pa., November 16, 1967 



Fro: 



School 



I was opening my locker in high 
school. The time, 2:30. Students 
were pushing and shoving, as 
usual, trying to get to the school 
buses. Then, I saw a teacher, a 
rather stolid, distinguished gentle- 
man. His face was drawn. He had 
been crying and he was barely 
holding back more tears. He told 
me what happened. The date: 
November 22, 1963. 

There are certain dates that ev- 
ery generation must remember; 
my parents, for example, remem- 
ber December 7, 1941. I wil never 
forget a different day — Friday, 
November 22 — or that weekend, 
or the events that occurred during 
that horrifying time. John F. 
Kennedy, president of the United 
States, was lulled. I was young, 
just 17 years old, and 1 didn't 
know much about death and as- 
sassins, politics and passions, or 
Chance and Fate. I knew even 
less of dignity and grace, or cour- 
age and heroism, or the potential 
of greatness and the cruelty of 
reality. But I quickly learned. 

I liked Kennedy. His Inaugural 
Address, given in a snowy Wash- 
ington, on a cold, sunny day, in- 
spired me; it gave me a tingling 
sensation. 

"Let the word go forth from 
this time and place, to friend 
and foe alike, that the torch has 
been passed to a new generation 
of Americans — born in this 
century, tempered by war, disci- 
plined by a hard and bitter 
peace, proud of our ancient her- 
itage — and unwilling to witness 
or permit the slow undoing of 
those human rights to which 
this nation has always been 
committed." 

I remember seeing and hearing 
films of his Berlin speech, Ken- 



nedy, high on a platform, obvious- 
ly angered by the sight and cruelty 
of the Berlin Wall, speaking emo- 
tionally to an utterly enormous 
crowd of Berliners: 

"There are many people in the 
world who really don't under- 
stand, or say they don't, what 
is the .great issue between the 
free world and the Communist 
world. Let them come to Berlin-. 
There are some who say that 
Communism is the wave of the 
future. Let them come to Ber- 
lin." 
Then, fiercely, 

"All free men, wherever they 
may live, are citizens of Berlin, 
and, therefore, as a free man, I 
take pride In the words "Ich bin 
ein Berliner." 

There was powerful emotion, 
sincere emotion, in his words. And 
the crowd went wild with enthu- 
siasm. 

Next, I see Kennedy on tele- 
vision during one of his frequent 
press conferences. Jabbing his 
pointer finger to drill home a point, 
Kennedy was serious but not 
pompous, witty but not slipshod, 
intelligent but not pedantic. Now, 
I remember the flags at half mast, 
and the muffled drums, beating a 
slow, horrible cadence, and the 
procession down Pennsylvania Av- 
enue which all the world watched, 
and all the world mourned. Sud- 
denly, chaos. A basement in Dal- 
las. A gunshot. The assassin is 
shot; his killer is 
jump on him, and the 
try is watching on television. Live 
— in America, here in 
And then, agair 
drums, for Kennedy, those awful 
muted drums, and the long line of 
people, of us, walking past his 
body in the Rotunda. 



Soon, it will be November 22, 
1967 and no one can say with cer- 
tainty — even though some would 
like to — that the world be better 
today if he had not gone to Dallas. 
But now the glorified myth clouds 
the true man and his deeds. Ken- 
nedy was on the threshold of get- 
ting a firm grip on the presi- 
dency; he was learning from his 
mistakes. The Bay of Pigs was 
a fiasco, but the Cuban missle crisis 
was an almost flawless combina- 
tion of power and resiliency. His 
legislative program which at first 
was floundering, was by 1963 
making headway in Congress. For 
those who say he did not pass 
major legislation, I would submit 
the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the 
Alliance for Progress, the Civil 
Rights Act, the Peace Corps and 
the War on Poverty as examples 
of programs which have had a 
profound effect on all our lives. 
If Kennedy was not a great presi- 
dent, a premise which is some- 
what debatable, he certainly was 
on the verge of becoming a great 
president, a premise which is even 
less debtable. 

Soon, it will be November 22, 
1967. It is four years after the 
assassination and I remember that 
day as If it just happened. And I 
hope that the promise of an Amer- 
ican society progressing toward a 
peaceful world, and the promise of 
American people enjoying the ben- 
eflits of our economy, and the 
promise of a good life for all our 
people shall not be lost on our 
leaders. Or us.

Pax outlines conscientious objection; 
defends Christian, legalistic principles 

by Paul D. Lawrence, Jr., Editor of Pax Newsletter 

Although many think that military service is inevitable, there are ways to avoid it. 
Political asylum in Canada or going to jail are possible, but not recommended ways, since 
they involve transgression of the law, which should only be transgressed when there is 
no other course of action available that is consistent with one's conscience. 
There does, however, happen to 



letters to 
the editor 



be one legal alternative to military 
service: conscientious objection. 
We feel bound to point this out and 
to argue for it, since a society such 
as ours, founded and based on 
violence and now dominated by 
the military industrial complex, 
does not send around recruiters 
for conscientious objection as it 
does for military service. 

We must now consider what are 
the bases for conscientious objec- 
tion. In this regard we are con- 
cerned with the theoretical bases; 
each one must face the Selective 
System questionnaire for himself. 

The obvious basis for conscien- 
tious objection is the belief that 
warfare is wrong. This belief must 
be absolute and allow no excep- 
tions. Immediately certain prob- 
lems arise: can any ethical prin- 
ciple be absolutized? The answer 
is "No," but that warfare is wrong 
can still be asserted by placing 
this belief in first position on the 
relative ethical hierarchy so that 
all other relative ethical principles 
must yield to it. 

But exacUy why is warfare 
wrong? Here we are faced with 
a variety of possible reasons. A 
legalistic Christian pacifist might 
say that the commands of Christ 
oppose warfare and cite some 
proof-texts from the New Testa- 
ment. Anjigapetlc Christian paci- 
fist might argue that warfare is 
contrary to love and thus Is wrong. 



A non-Christian might argue that 
warfare is wrong because It takes 
life which man can yet neither 
create nor restore, or perhaps be- 
cause warfare is a crime against 
humanity. There are of course 
many other possible bases for op- 
position to warfare. 

None of these reasons, however, 
Involve a renunciation of force 
per se. Whoever would renounce 
force would renounce life. Force 
Is essential to life. By force alone 
can man make any changes In his 
environment or indeed any 
changes in himself as well. Force 
Is a part of nature: to open a 
door, to fell a tree, to plow a field 
—all these require force. That to 
which there Is an objection is not 
the use of force, but the use of 
violence which differs greatly from 
force. To open a door by turning 
the doorknob is to use force; to 
open a door by smashing it with 
an ax Is to resort to violence. It 
is the violent character of warfare 
that Is opposed to the fundamental 
principles of morality. 

Nor would It seem that conscien- 
tious objection must depend on 
pacificism, for surely there is a 
tremendous difference between 
self-defense and modern warfare; 
especially when it is evident that 
one engaged in self-defense is de- 
fending himself from an attack 
and when it is far from evident 
who is at fault In modern warfare, 
since all parties Involved accuse

Open Letter 

To the Editor: 

I, a student at Muhlenberg Col- 
lege, violated the Honor Code in 
the order of plagiarism on a term 
paper As a result of this act, I 
turned myself into the Student 
Court. 

I would like to emphasize pub- 
licly the value of the Honor Code 
and the need for all students to 
regard it seriously and never vio- 
late it. It is a privilege [tic] and 
an honor which is hard to come by. 

I have paid heavily for the first, 
and last, dishonest act of my life.

Choir to perform 
diverse program 



The Muhlenberg CoUege Choir, 
under the direction of Professor 
Ludwig Lenel, will present a con- 
cert in the Chapel Sunday at 8 p.m. 
In honor of the 100th anniversary 
of the naming of Muhlenberg Col- 
lege and the 450th anniversary of 
the Reformation, the concert will 
include a variety of selections in- 
volving brass, strings, and organ. 

One of the selections, "Alleluia, 
O Sing Ye," produces an anti- 
phonal sound by employing the 
choir, brass Instruments, and four 
soloists, those being Carol Doherty, 
soprano, Natalie Ingraham, alto, 
John Tomasi, tenor, and Don Peck, 
bass. 



Speak Easy- 
limited 



lively, 



Although discussion was lively, 
it certainly was limited at last 
Monday's first Speak Easy. Limit- 
ed by number, that is. Not much 
of a true representation of opin- 
ions appeared at the new program. 
Why? Because only six out of 
1500 students attended. Ironically 
enough, two of the six were mem- 
bers of the program's sponsoring 
organization, Union Board. 

Joseph Frederico, assistant di- 
rector of admissions, spoke with 
the group concerning such topics 
as athletic recruitment, quotas, 
and the importance of college 
boards, high school records, and 
extra-curriicular activities. 

The idea of Speak Easy is to 
facilitate better communication be- 
tween students, faculty members, 
a'nd administrators. Its attraction 
point is that informal sessions are 
held. The program is not in typi- 
cal lecture-followed-by-question- 
and-answer form. Rather, every- 
one is free to speak, question, de- 
mand, complain, and generally ex- 
press himself. 

Dean Philip Secor will appear 
at the second program Wednesday, 
November 29 at 4 p.m. in room 
108 of the Union. He will discuss 
culturally disadvantaged students 
and the underprivileged Negro on 
the Muhlenberg campus, the Ford 
Foundation proposal, Russian 
studies, and the purpose of fra- 
ternities. 

Everyone around here is always 
complaining about something. 
Here is an opportunity to speak 
informally with some of the people 
who could possibly remedy some 
of the wrongs on campus. They 
are here to listen, doesn't anyone 
care enough to speak? 



Berkeley grows 
marijuana plant 

(CPS) — The official residence 
of the chancellor of the Univer- 
sity of California at Berkeley is 
one of those super-stately man- 
sions set on a little hill and sur- 
rounded by meticulously mani- 
cured shrubbery. 

The unique feature of the house 
is an outdoor clock that lies In 
the middle of a beautiful garden 
area. Various flowers make up the 
face of the clock. 

On Monday a new flower was 
discovered in the garden, a flower 
called "cannabis sativa," occasion- 
ally known as marijuana. 

Said Mrs. Roger Meyns, the 
chancellor's wife, "I don't think 
I'd know it if I saw It."

Joseph Halloran, "It wasn't blown

Norman Paige, Muhlenberg's af- 
filiate artist, will join the choir 
for a selection and will also sing 
the tenor solo, "Ich werde nlcht 
sterben" ("I shall not dlr"). 

Evelyn Watson, guest soprano 
soloist, will perform "Bachianas 
Brasileiras #5." For the final 



concert; 
planned 

number of the evening, Lenel will 
conduct an original composition 
entitled "Four Canticles." 

Mrs. Watson will sing the so- 
prano solo sections, and the choir 
will be accompanied by six cellos, 
two string bass, a vibraphone, and 
tam-tam.

'Imaginary Invalid' 
reveals role artistry 



by Karin Giger 



A remarkably refreshing actress 
debuted in Mask and Dagger's 
presentation of The Imaginary In- 
valid this past weekend. Unde- 
niably, Susan Mengel was the star 
of the play, although she was sur- 
rounded by a competent, sporadi- 
cally outstanding cast 

Miss Mengel was perfectly suit- 
ed for the role of the impish 
French maid, Toinette. She was 
never out of character. She enun- 
ciated perfectly, moved gracefully, 
and clowned naturally. Her poise 
on the stage was exceptional; 
rarely have I seen a character 
brought to life so vividly by an 
amateur actor. Miss Mengel dis- 
played the star quality so few stars 
actually possess — sparkle. 

The male lead was played by 
another excellent actor. Glen 
Moyer was at the very pinnacle of 
his comical artistry in this Moliere 
play. His facial expressions, cos- 
tume, and ad libbing were truly 
hilarious. The role of Monsieur 
Argan was superbly portrayed by 
a gifted actor who is very much at 



Students vary in political philosophies; 
groups display local, national interests 



There are those at Muhlenberg 
who feel the college has a rather 
conservative student body. How- 
ever, residents of the Allentown 
area regard the school as a radical 
element of the community. In 
truth, Muhlenberg has a wide 
range of political philosophies well 
represented by student groups. 
Several of these political organiza- 
tions on campus have been quite 
active in recent weeks. 

The Young Republicans recently 
participated in elections by cam- 
paigning for local candidates. The 
Political Science Conference held 
its first meeting of the year recent- 
ly, and Pax, a peace organization 
on campus, took part In the march

be resolved only by consultations 
between students and instructors, 
not between parents and instruc- 
tors. 

Also among the faculty was the 
sentiment that the parents of those 
students who are having serious 
difficulties did not show interest 
by coming to the program. 

Reactions of the parents and of 
their sons or daughters concurred 
unanimously. Although some 
found the discussions with profes- 
sors meaningless because of lack 
of time, long lines, or absence of 
certain instructors, most enjoyed 
the entire day and thought the 
morning session especially bene- 
ficial. 

Dean Philip Secor's speech "New 
Vistas in Liberal Education" was 
well received, yet a few parents 
commented that "... dealing with 
ideals and platitudes, it was a 
little too lofty" and that it was 
"superfluous." The concert by 
Norman Paige was hailed as "tre- 
mendous," "great" and "excellent," 
and the tenor was praised for both 
the power of his voice and the 
variety of his selections. 

Regardless of the differing opin- 
ions of its merit, all seemed to 
agree that Freshman Parents Day 
at least offered parents ". . . .a 
wonderful opportunity for parents 
to see their sons and daughters 
again." 



on Washington held October 21. 

An organization of 25 active 
members meeting twice monthly, 
the Young Republicans, has been 
working in conjunction with local 
Republican clubs. The purpose of 
the group has been two-fold; it has 
served to evoke an interest in local 
and national politics, and to pro- 
vide an educational experience by 
viewing the internal workings of 
the Republican Party at the com- 
munity and state levels. The latest 
project of the group was participa- 
tion in campaigning for Samuel 
Fenstermacher In his unsuccessful 
bid for mayor of Allentown. 

The Political Science Conference 
held its first meeting of the year 
October 26. The topic of discus- 
sion was "The Mayor-Council 
Form of Government in Allen- 
town" with Michael Rosenfeld, an 
Allentown realtor, as guest speak- 
er of the evening. At a meeting 
to be held on Monday at 6:30 p.m. 
in the Union delegates will be 
chosen to the Inter-Collegiate 
Political Activities Committee. 

Also, the conference will organ- 
ize Muhlenberg students to serve, 
along with at least six other 
schools from this area, as an in- 
formation center, keeping the sev- 



eral colleges in touch with student 
political activities on each campus. 
The Political Science Conference 
also intends to send delegates to 
nation-wide political conventions. 
The budget and constitution will 
be reviewed, and nominations for 
officers will be made at this meet- 
ing. 

Several Muhlenberg students 
also participated in the Washing- 
ton March for Peace, a confronta- 
tion suported at Berg by Pax. In 
a statement made by Herb Lor- 
entzen, chairman of the organiza- 
tion, the purpose of Pax is to cre- 
ate "a loose association of students 
who wish to work together as in- 
terest and conscience allows to 
create a world of peace." The 
group has no official party line, but 
rather states its philosophy as an 
"unwillingness to resort to vio- 
lence . . . relying on persuasion 
to obtain whatever agreement is 
possible." 

Pax was active last year, demon- 
strating against the use of napalm 
bombs in the Southeast Asia con- 
flict. The group publishes a peri- 
odic newsletter, edited by Paul 
Lawrence, which advocates with- 
drawal from the Vietnamese war.

about as ludicrous as an operatic 
tenor singing Kentucky mountain 
songs, although "Black is the Color 
of My True Love's Hair" was 
poignantly done and extremely 
well received. Paige did about as 
much as was possible with Rogers 
and Hammerstein's nauslatlng 
"Younger Than Springtime," and 
displayed his amazing versatility 
with his interpretation of the inane 
"Drunken Sailor" sea chantey. 

The rather compromising nature 
of the last third of the program 
was offset by the prodigious tal- 
ents of both Paige and Lenel, who 
volleyed constantly for the upper 
hand. The former was particularly 
impressive in his cool handling of 
the various interpretive snares 
laid by his accompanist. 

Paige will give another concert 
Monday, November 27, at 8:30 
p.m. in the Science Auditorium. 



ease on the stage. 

Judy Eisenhart in the role of 
Angelique, Argan's daughter, was 
perhaps the biggest disappoint- 
ment of the show. During the first 
act, the casting into this role seem- 
ed to be suitable. I attributed her 
twittery motions and nervous 
glances to opening night butter- 
flies. But as the show progressed 
it became more obvious that Miss 
Eisenhart had no clear concept of 
the role she was playing. She 
vascillated between very note- 
worthy and absolutely atrocious. 
In one scene she would shine 
through, portending possible tal- 
ent. Yet just a few minutes later, 
in pretended boredom or nervous- 
ness, she would twiddle her 
thumbs. The ambivalence of her 
role portrayal was seen in her 
misconception of proper behavior 
for a young lady in 1673 and her 
often overshadowing up-staging. 

Ingrid Biel looked lovely on 
stage and added breadth to her 
role with expressive eye move- 
ments. Tim Hinkle displayed a 
pure clear voice and Stephen 
Rockauer was very amusing as the 
physician's son. Both Dwight 
Shelloway and Dave Fritchy were 
credible in their roles. They spoke 
clearly and lended the proper 
amount of dignity called for by 
their parts. 

Costuming and set design were 
excellent. Dr. Andrew Erskine 
and Lynette Mende are to be 
praised for their direction of a 
most enjoyable production. 

The Imaginary Invalid was 
outstanding for two major rea- 
sons — Susan Mengel and Glen 
Moyer. They are indeed talented 
actors. Both are potential succes- 
ses in the world of entertainment. 



Adolf presents 
love' lecture 

Dr. Helen Adolf, former visiting 
professor of German at Muhlen- 
berg College, delivered a lecture 
at a meeting of Der deutsche Ver- 
ein on Tuesday, November 8. Her 
topic was "Beatrice and Love of 
Wisdom," or "Wisdom of Love." 
Speaking first of Dante's Divine 
Comedy in general, Dr. Adolf trac- 
ed the poet's Easter week journey 
from Holy Thursday in the dark 
wood to the Ten Heavens of Para- 
dise and the poet's following 
Thursday eve return. Then, in a 
rather compact combination of 
historical fact and poetic fiction, 
the topic of Beatrice took shape. 

Dr. Adolf referred to Beatrice 
as a power acting behind the as- 
cent and descent, as a sort of di- 
vine grace that every man should 
experience. It was she who taught 
Dante and led him through his 
search for knowledge. The Bea- 
trice who actually lived was, in 
reality, a guide through Dante's 
life who appeared in flesh, dis- 
appeared, and then again reap- 
peared, but as the inspirational 
force out of his memory and ador- 
ation. 

Finally, Dr. Adolph referred to 
Beatrice as the most perfect mir- 
ror — a perfect reflection of un- 
derstanding, love, and wisdom, 
and only if man, like Dante, 
searches for wisdom and love, can 
she possibly appear to him. 

There will be a meeting for 
all those Interested in the 
business aspects of the Muh- 
lenberg Musical Association 
on Monday, November 20 at 
10 a.m. In the Union. 



MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Thundiy, November IS, 1967 



Disruptive protestors gagged 



in recent protests designed to phy- 
sically disrupt the military ma- 
chine, specifically recruiting and 
induction. 

Hershey admitted his letter to 
local draft boards is a reaction to 
the "disruptive and destructive" 
trend which protests have been 
taking. "There is a growing 
weariness on the part of the pub- 
lic, and Congressmen and a lot of 
others have been saying why in 
the devil don't you do something 
about these people," Hershey said. 

However, the Selective Service 
director said his letter offers no 
new policies. "The law has been 
there all the time, and we are just 
encouraging that it be enforced." 

Hershey said the directive is 
aimed only at those protesters who 
engage in "illegal activities and 
lawlessness- We are not trying to 
stop anybody from thinking or 
doing anything else as long as they 
are within the law." 

Hershey's letter does not men- 
tion college students in particular 
nor specific anti-recruiting inci- 



dents, but the point is clear since 
most of the demonstrations which 
fall into the "disruptive" category 
have occurred on or near college 
campuses. However, Hershey said, 
"We are not just picking on col- 
lege students. This applies to all 
persons who have deferments for 
any reason." 

The authority for Hershey's di- 
rective comes from a section of the 
Selective Service law which pro- 
vides penalties for individuals who 
"knowingly hinder or interfere or 
attempt to do so in any way by 
force or violence or otherwise" 
with the Selective Service system. 

Hershey's letter said local 
boards "may reopen the classifica- 
tion" of protesters who perform il- 
legal acts. "If evidence of viola- 
tion of the (Selective Service) Act 
and Regulations is established," 
the local board should "declare the 
registrant to be a delinquent and 
to process him accordingly." 

"If the United States Attorney 
should desire to prosecute before 
the local board has ordered the 
registrant for induction, full co- 



operation will be given him," the 
letter continues. 

Hershey said his letter also re- 
fers to persons who either burn or 
refuse to carry their draft cards. 
However, he said "about 75 per- 
cent of the pieces of paper which 
have been thrown around as draft 
cards probably are not" 

Referring to the protesters, the 
letter said, "It is to be hoped that 
misguided registrants will recog- 
nize the long-range significance of 
accepting their obligations now, 
rather than hereafter regretting 
their actions performed under un- 
fortunate influences or misdirected 
emotions, or possibly honest but 
wholly illegal advice, or even com- 
pletely vicious efforts to cripple, 
if not to destroy, the unity vital 
to the existence of a nation and 
the preservation of the liberties of 
each of our citizens."

this outlook, he is a procrastinator; 
he puts off doing work until the

he thinks he can get away with

Pax confronts recruiters

day stand. It will be repeated!" 
Pax, in conjunction with the 
Placement Office is planning to 
bring a speaker on consciencious 
objection to campus, possibly fol- 
lowed by a counselor on the sub- 
ject. The selective service form 
for conscientious objections ac- 
cording to Lawrence, is "quite 
tricky." "We can provide the 
theoretical basis for conscientious 
objection but are not qualified to 
advise anyone how to answer the 
questions. That is why we need 
a counselor. Anyone who tries it 
on his own is asking for trouble, 
asking to go to jail in fact." 

Several people had suggested 
that the weekly's two articles in 
the November 2 issue stimulated 
Pax's demonstration. Lawrence 
said that they had been talking 
about it earlier but the articles 



convinced them to take some ac- 
tion. In his usual modest way he 
also mentioned that the coverage 
"made us think the weekly would 
be sure to cover our actions." 

There had also been comments 
that the weekly articles were re- 
sponsible for the location of all 
recruiting stations in the Place- 
ment Office rather than in the 
Union. Bargerstock said that all 
government recruiting agents, in- 
cluding Vista, Peace Corps and 
CIA will be stationed at the Place- 
ment Office for at least the re- 
mainder of this year. This is a 
joint decision of Bargerstock, Dean 
Secor and Dean Dlerolf, resulting 
from the Middle Atlantic Place- 
ment Association Conference and 
the feeling that the location in the 
Union attracted more curiosity 
seekers and loiters than truly in- 
terested students.

no matter how lightly he may 
seem to take college, the nowhere 
man is really burdened by an op- 
pressive feeling of guilt. He senses 
that he is not one of the crowd, 
that he is bucking the current, and 
he feels badly about it. Maybe he 
has been told since childhood that 
he would go to college; it had been 
quietly assumed that he would 
take to it naturally. Now that he 
is here, he feels that he is letting 
-himself and his parents down, yet 
he Is powerless to do anything 
about it. 

He feels unsure about his choice 
of a major. He may even wonder 
if he belongs in college at all. He 
knows that he is wasting his abil- 
ities, whatever they may be, by 
simply treading water. And just 
as he feels guilty in his lack of 
accomplishment, he finds very 
little fulfillment in his occasional 
achievements, which he feels are 
bastardizations of authentic cre- 
ativity. 

Tension pervades the life of the 
directionless student. He Uves in 
a psychological jungle of dread, 
fright, and even terror. Treading 
the tedious line at the precipice of 
failure, the marginal student is 
overburdened with anxiety. Where 
the sincere student faces the dis- 
appointment of falling short of his 
goals, the marginal student faces 
the dread of failure. 

Procrastination is a tedious pro- 
cess; there is the constant specter 
of undone work hanging over one's 
head. This is a source of constant 
uneasiness. The student is relent- 
lessly harried by his lack of pre- 
paration; he can never be com- 
pletely free of the tension that 
this produces. 

I have called this directionless 
student a nowhere man. No other 
term could better describe the 
great crushing effect his situation 
has on him. He is truly a nowhere 
man. He is crushed by feelings of 
non-utility, of isolation, of point- 
lessness. He has no place and no 
reason. He is completely alone and 
lonely. He does not belong, and, 
although his fellow sufferers are 
legion, they cannot show sympathy 
to one another. People often ask 
me, "What are you going to be 
when you get out of college?" I 
usually reply, rather wryly, "Un- 
employed." Paradoxically, the in- 
quirer usually laughs. I often 
think that I should instead say, 
"Unhappy." With no direction, no 
goal, life becomes terribly painful. 

This is the situation of the no- 
where man. Within he Is strug- 
gling to come to grips with him- 
self, while without he is struggling 
to keep his head above water. Ob- 
livious of his plight, humanity 
rushes on, their grails within 
sight, while the nowhere man is 
left nowhere, confused and be- 
wildered, alone and frightened, 
trying desperately to find one for 
himself before his time runs out.

The situation is very difficult, 
however, if one objects not to all 
wars but only to those considered 
unjust, since the conscription laws 
do not recognize selective con- 
scientious objection. Although 
some urge such recognition, the re- 
actionary character of the recent 
revisions in the conscription laws 
give us little hope for such recog- 
nition. A would-be selective ob- 
jector must realize then that he Is 
better off under civilian jurisdic- 
tion than under military jurisdic- 
tion.

WEEKLY 



Mules tackle Hounds 

CO-CAPTAINS: Bob Griffith and Bob Sllcox. 

OFFENSE: The downfall of the Moravian team this year has 
been caused by the Hounds' proneness to mistakes. In many 
of their games either a penalty, an interception, a fumble, 
or a combination of any of the three resulted in defeat. 
The offense utilizes a pro-type I formation with variations 
of a slot T. Injuries have hurt the Hounds (only 30 suited 
up for last week's game against Juniata) and they have 
been forced to make many adjustments. Bob Suva, the 
starting split end, is out for the year with a rib injury and 
has been replaced by Paul Martinelli. Martinelli has filled 
in nicely, catching ten passes last week for 183 yards and 
Moravian's only touchdown. The tight end is Roger Knlsely. 
Ralph Eltr lr ut h a m is the flanker and a good one. He is 
thrown to frequently and set a school record with nine TD 
passes last year. Two individuals will probably alternate 
at quarterback, Jim Diets and Greg Siefert. Siefert is an 
excellent runner and Dietz is the better passer, although 
susceptible to the interception. He has had twenty passes 
intercepted. Brum Parry, at 510" and 200 pounds, will be 
the fullback and Hugh Grate the tailback. Jack Iannantoono 
and Bob Smith also alternate with Gratz. Dale Carpenter 
was injured and Nick Mancini will replace him at the one 
guard position. Brian Seeber, 5'8" and 218 pounds, is the 
other. The tackles are Norm Linker, 6 2 " and 210 pounds, 
and Bob Griffith. 6' and 220 pounds. The center is Bill 
Yerkes. 

DEFENSE: Defensively, Moravian operates out of a 5-2 setup 
and is comparatively small. It has proven itself to be 
weak against the pass and only fairly strong against the 
rush. George BeU is the standout of the defensive unit from 
his end slot He's 6'1" and 200 pounds and an outstanding 
tackier. He has done the most consistent job of anyone on 
defense. Other good defensive men include Seeber at tackle 
and Bob Siloox at linebacker. Filling in the rest of the 
defensive line will be Ted Hutler, 6'2" and 205 pounds, at 
end, Griffith at tackle, and Ed Zaninelli at middle guard. 
The other linebacker will be Jeff Wilson. At safety will be 
Steve Markowich with Gratz, Eltringham, and Siefert at 
the defensive halfback positions. The monster man, or 
"mauler" as Moravian terms him, is Dave 



OUTLOOK: Moravian's defense looked better last week against 
a very strong Juniata team (7-1) and the offense can be 
tough if they can avoid those costly mistakes. The Hounds 
have been a better second half team and Muhlenberg is 
going to have to» score heavily early in the first half to 
compensate. Moravian is probably as evenly matched a 
team as the Mules have faced all year. Saturday is a must 
game for Muhlenberg in order to improve upon last year's 
record. But it won't be an easy one, and the entire team 
is going to have to play two good halves of football.

Placement policy 

Iran put I 

eminent organizations send repre- 
sentatives to interview seniors as 
prospective employees. In Decem- 
ber alone about 50 agencies will 
be represented, including Bell 
Telephone, Central Penn Bank, 
All State Insurance Company, J. T. 
Baker Chemical Company of 
Philadelphia, McGraw-HiU Pub- 
lishing Company, Peace Corps, 
IBM, and United States Depart- 
ment of Agriculture. 

The Placement Office advises 
students how to prepare for these 
interviews, and, in addition, gives 
each senior guidance tools. These 
include a list of when all the in- 
terviewers will be on campus and 
in what majors they are Inter- 
ested and a booklet on preparing 
for the interview and do's and 
don'ts for the interview itself. 

Even graduate school candidates 
come for interviews. Of those stu- 
dents registered from the Class of 
'67, 59 went into teaching, 33 to 
graduate school, 22 into the mili- 
tary services, one to the Peace 
Corps, one to VISTA, and the bal- 
ance into business, government, 
and industry. Average starting 
salaries for last year's graduates 
were men — $7,300 women — $6,320. 

Bargerstock says the success of 
the Placement Office should be 
judged by whether it gives stu- 
dents enough exposure to military, 
employment, and graduate school

Booters top Stevens for 10-2 mark 

Mules wind up record season 

by Pete Helwig 

The Muhlenberg soccer team put the finishing touches on its finest season ever in beat- 
ing Stevens 3-2 last Wednesday. The club's season total of 36 goals shatters the previous 
record of 25, and its stunning 10-2 won-lost mark is also unprescedented. 

Berg has clinched at least a third place finish in the 30-team Middle Atlantic Confer- 
and has a good chance to 

wrapped up an amazing season 
with his thirteenth goal to give 
the Mules their record-breaking 
tenth victory. An enthusiastic 




Muhlenberg's amazing soccer 
learn has finally finished running, 
passing, shooting, and winning. 
And they seemed to have done a 
pretty good job at all of these, es- 
pecially winning. This year's 10-2 
record was the best in Muhlen- 
berg's history, and placed the Mule 
booters within range of a tourna- 
ment bid. 

And these scrapping men of 
Berg, who overcame key injuries 
and near defeats to put together 
their superlative record, deserve 
the recognition that a tournament 
appearance would bring. But no 
matter how well the soccer team 
played on the field, any aspirations 
they might have had for a post- 
season interlengue match were 
snuffed out more than a year ago 
by the higher-ups in Muhlenberg's 
office coaching staff. 

1.6 rule 

As most people will recall, about 
one or two years ago all the ath- 
letic directors met at the NCAA 
conference in an attempt to create 
standards for all collegiate ath- 
letes under their jurisdiction. In 
this cause, these wise old men en- 
acted the controversial 1.6 rule, 
which has since depleted the ranks 
of the faithful. And among the 
dissentors was our own Ray Whis- 
pell. 

What this law actually entails, 
in brief, is that no student athlete 
with lower than a 1.6 average 
should be allowed to represent his 
school in athletics, and, in addition, 
any scholarship which this indi- 
vidual might have previously been 
awarded is then forfeited. The 
Ivy League, Muhlenberg and sev- 
eral of its MAC neighbors Immedi- 
ately balked at such an arbitrary 
attempt to encroach the sovereign- 



ty of the school's athletic policy, 
as well as this attempt to set up 
such an unequal determination of 
academic delineation. 



Since then, these renegade fac- 
tions have organized, and last year 
missed by one vote in their attempt 
to remove this law from the books. 
And at this year's meeting in New 
York in January, the rule should 
most likely be reversed. But what 
is happening now as a result of the 
split caused by the 1.6 ruling? 

The NCAA has ruled that, unless 
special dispensation is granted, as 
in the case of John Piper's parti- 
cipation in the NCAA wrestling 
championships last year, no indi- 
vidual or teams representing these 
dissenting schools are permitted to 
be invited to any official NCAA 
tournament. This includes bowl 
bids and soccer tournaments. 
Rule rooks booters 

As was mentioned at the start, 
the soccer team was out of this 
world this year, but a simple rule 
is keeping them from even play- 
ing out of their league. It is in- 
deed unjust and intolerable when 
a governing body so limits itself 
that a better team is passed over 
in favor of a lesser representative. 

Something will most likely be 
done in January to change the 
present system. But how does 
Coach Boyer tell that to Lee Krug 
and Tony Rooklin and Bob 
Preyss, who worked so hard to 
make this year what it was. 

Soccer season is over and for- 
gotten in January, and all that re- 
mains is next year. But bright as 
the future may seem, this year's 
booters, especially the seniors, 
must wonder what ever happened 
to the present. 



ence, 

advance if Temple or St. Joseph's 
should falter in their remaining 
games. Because of Muhlenberg's 
refusal to accept the NCAA's pre- 
sumptuous "1.6 rule," however, the 
Mules are ineligible for post- 
season tournament play outside 
the MAC. 

Edge Stevens 

A confident Mule squad rode in- 
to a lion's den last Wednesday 
and had to come from behind to 
beat lowly Stevens, 3-2 in over- 
time. Coach Don Boyer explained 
that a determined Stevens team 
capitalized on the "pre-game pic- 
nic atmosphere," playing a Mor- 
avian-type game — they were 
everywhere." 

When Stevens took a 1-0 lead 
after ten minutes of the first per- 
iod, Boyer immediately put all his 
money on his enormous bench 
strength. Having agreed on un- 
limited substitution before the 
game, he was able to insert a com- 
plete second team for the rest 
of the first half. 

Muhlenberg's second string out- 
played the Stevens squad and 
came very close to scoring, but the 
Mules were still astonished to find 
themselves on the short end of a 
1-0 halftime score. 

Goals by Ed Gilroy and Bruce 
Fechnay in the second half were 
offset by another Stevens score, 
and the game stood at 2-2 after 
four periods. Freshman Fechnay's 
goal, coming on a penalty kick, 
gave him ten for the season, sec- 
ond only to Gilroy on the Berg 
squad. 

It was appropriate that Gilroy 



group of highly vocal Muhlenberg 
partisans was also a large factor 
in this and every game through- 
out the season. 

When the jubilant bus returned 
to campus, the team descended 
on injured star Ron Tuma's room 
and presented him with the auto- 
graphed game ball Tuma, a 
sophomore foreward, looked like a 
certain all-conference choice be- 
fore sustaining a serious injury 
in the first half on the season. 

The Mules will lose only three 
men to graduation, but the con- 
tributions of each have been spec- 
tacular all year. Halfback Lee 
Krug, goalie Tony Rooklin, and 
fullback Bob Preyss will be con- 
spicuously absent next year, but 
still has eight returning 



starters, backed up by that young, 
talented bench of which Coach 
Boyer is justly proud. The com- 
plete recovery of Tuma and stand- 
out Mike Stoudt would add them 
to the list of returning notables 
including junior Al Sheer, Fech- 
nay, Gilroy, Junior Ken Van- 
Gilder, sophomore Tom Derstine, 
and junior Pete Moriarity.

F&M comeback reverses football tilt 
as Mules choke 22-0 first-period bugle 

by Randy Appel 

It's a real crime! Your team is winning, 22-0, and it looks like a happy trip home 
from Lancaster. It's chilly and windy, but you feel warm inside because a victory com- 
pensates for the onslaught your team received the week before. You're glad you came 
all the way to Lancaster and you feel pr etty smug sitting among the Parents' Day crowd 

of the opponent's school. You 



think your team has sewed this 
one up and you start thinking 
about Moravian and a better than 
.500 season. 

You're down on the field adorn- 
ed in the cardinal and white uni- 
form of your school. You're lead- 
ing, 22-0, and that little burst of 
second effort leaves your system 
because it's no longer necessary. 

The next thing you know it's 
26-22 and your team is losing. You 
know now that it's too late and 
when the final whistle sounds, 
you've lost by a single point. Your 
team bites the dust again. 

It's natural for any team to relax 
a little with a big lead. Swarth- 
more did the same thing a couple 
of weeks ago and lost, too. It's 
natural for any team, but not for 
a food team. A good team knows 
that the game isn't over until the 
clock runs out. Then, and only 
then, is victory assured. 

Mules run it up 

Muhlenberg took Franklin and 
Marshall's kick and marched in for 
a score. Ron Henry hit Mark 
Hastie with a 22-yard TD pass, 
Lee Seras kicked the extra point, 
and it was 7-0. F&M took the kick, 
ran-three plays and punted. Hastie 



took the punt, handed off to Dave 
Yoder, and he went 68 yards for 
the touchdown. Lee Seras' kick 
was good and it was 14-0. 

F&M took the kickoff and 
marched from their 26 to the Mule 
41 before Mike Harakal intercept- 
ed a D. J. Koms pass. Muhlenberg 
took over at the F&M 45, and 
went 55 yards in nine plays for the 
score, with Thorn Saeger covering 
the final three yards. The attempt 
for the two-point conversion was 
good, with Henry taking it in him- 
self, and the Mules led, 22-0. 

F&M took over at their 34 after 
the kickoff and moved to the Mule 
30 on the precision passing of 
D.J. Korns to Rick Thompson and 
Russ Boekengroeger. But 'Berg 
recover an F&M fumble and took 
over again. 

Berg stalled 

This time the Mules stalled and 
John Harding's punt was run back 
36 yards by Rusty Ward to the 
Mule 29. Korns completed a ten- 
yard pass to Boekenkrocger, a 
seven-yarder to Thompson, and 
after being dropped for a loss of 
five yards, ran sixteen yards to 
the one. Korns took it In himself 
and it was 22-6. The kick was 



not good. 

The Mules took over at their 36 
after the kickoff. On third down, 
Ward intercepted a Ron Henry 
pass and F&M had the ball at the 
Mule 48. F&M went those 48 yards 
in eight plays with' Korns running 
it in from the one. He completed 
three of three passes in the drive.

Diplomates dump Berg in cross-country; 
luckless harriers' limp through season 



Muhlenberg's luckless harriers 
closed out their season in a typical 
if not spectacular fashion by bow- 
ing to a strong F&M squad last 
Saturday 15-40. As usual, Doug 
Henry led the Mules as he placed 
sixth overall. Ralph Grimes was 
the only other Mule to place as 
he came in eighth. 

Tom Miller was running smooth- 
ly in second place for the first 
mile, when he suddenly ran out of 
gas. The loss was the ninth 
straight for the Berg this year. 

Coach Theison had definite ex- 
pectations for a winning season, 
but an unbelievable string of in- 



juries and sicknesses hampered the 
Mules all season. At one time or 
another, Miller, Glenn Seifert, 
Grimes, and Ferguson, along with 
freshman Ed Lightkep, were un- 
able to run. Henry and captain 
Grimes, who will be graduating, 
were mainstays all season along 
with Ferguson. 

Although the Mules will meet 
the same stiff competition next 
year, they should be better pre- 
pared to handle it. They have 
everyone returning except Henry 
and Grimes, and it is certain that 
the same injury bugaboo will not 
occur again next year.

Faculty approves junior keys; 
program begins next semester 



After a week's delay due to the 
illness of President Erling N. Jen- 
sen the Women's Council request 
for junior keys has officially been 
passed by the Student Affairs 
Committee of the College. In or- 
der to properly implement the 
proposal the new system of curfew 
elimination will not be effective 
until second semester this year. 

Under the new regulation a jun- 
ior woman with parental permis- 
sion will apply to the Dean of 
Women Anne G. Nugent for the 
privilege of obtaining a key to the 
dormitory. If the woman is grant- 
ed the privilege, she will then be 
permitted to remain outside the 
dormitory past the present cur- 
few and to enter the building us- 
ing a key which has been dis- 
tributed to her according to the 
procedure set down by the Wo- 
men's Council (see weekly, No- 
vember 9). 

Before junior keys can be dis- 
tributed, a mass meeting of the 
third year women will be held at 
which time Women's Council 
President Betsy Weller will ex- 
plain the program in detail. Girls 
desiring the privilege must then 
apply in writing to Dean Nugent 
who in turn will send a letter and 
permission form to the respective 
parents. It is hoped that these 
forms will be received back from 
the parents by Reading Week. 

Committees will be formed in 
each dormitory and additional 
keys to the dormitories will be 
made. At this time only senior 
women possess keys to their resi- 



Miss Weller, along with Barbara 
Lasswitz and Brenda Collins, pre- 



sented the proposal to the Student 
Affairs Committee as representa- 
tives of the Women's Council. 
Much discussion and drafting of 
the proposal preceded their pre- 
sentation before the faculty com- 



mittee. Last year a different 
proposal concerning the elimina- 
tion of curfews was defeated; how- 
ever, the necessary changes in last 
year's document have been effec- 
tively made. 



Japanese guaranteed 
full academic freedom 



by Charles B. Fans 

Editor's note: Dr. Fans is 
Muhlenberg College's Harrv 
C. Trexler Visiting Scholar. 
From 1962 to 1967 he was 
Minister for Cultural Affairs 
of the United States Embassy 
in Tokyo. Before World War 
II he was a student at Tokyo 
University. In the course of 
his work with the United 
States Embassy, Dr. Fans has 
visited more than 100 Japa- 
nese universities and has lec- 
furcd at many of them. He 
explains in this scries of three 
articles for the weekly start- 
ing in this issue the nature of 
student involvement and pro- 
test in Japan. 

As a result of having discussed 
the Japanese student movement 
briefly In my seminars on Con- 
temporary Japanese Culture I 
have been asked to do the same

Forum pairs atheist Murray 
with Penn law school dean 



The fourth Open Forum Debate 
will be staged next Thursday, De- 
cember 7, when Madalyn Murray 
O'Hair, an atheist whose fight 
against prayer and Bible reading 
in public schools led to the Su- 
preme Court decision banning 
them, will be placed beside Vice 
Dean Theodore H listed of the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania School of 
Law to debate "Religion and the 
First Amendment." 

Open Forum: Church and State 
will be moderated by Philip B. 
Secor, Dean of the College. The 
debate will take place in the Gar- 
den Room at 6 p.m. 

Madalyn Murray gained nation- 
wide attention in June 1963 when 
she fought the battle against the 
recitatio- a religious prayers in 
the public schools. Since the Con- 
stitution makes no mention of God, 
and the First Amendment forbids 
any law regarding the establish- 
ment of religion, the Supreme 
Court held in Mrs. Murray's favor 
that the religious exercises in pub- 
law at 



Ohio Northern University and 
South Texas CoUege. She has 
worked as a WAC and has spent 
17 years as a psychiatric social 
worker in Baltimore, Maryland. 
Publisher of a newsletter called 
The American Atheist, she has 
been significant in organizing the 
Freethought Society of America, 
Other Americans, and the Society 
of Separalionists, organizations 
which are dedicated to the promo- 
tion of atheism and the elimina- 
tion of both direct and indirect 
governmental support of religious 
institutions. 

In an appearance at the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania Mrs. Murray 
called religion "organized insanity" 
and said that she lives by the posi- 
tive philosophy of materialism, an 
enthusiasm for life that leaves 
"emotional religious hang-ups" out 
of life and "restores man to dig- 
nity and integrity."

printed there was no biographical

though there were a number of 
violations of this freedom in the 
1930s and during the war years. 
Even before the War, however, 
university presidents and deans 
were usually elected by the facul- 
ties. It was traditional then, as 
it is now, that the police should 
not enter a university campus un- 
less invited by the university au- 
thorities. During the years in 
which I was with the American 
Embassy in Tokyo I recall no case 
in which the Japanese govern- 
ment caused the resignation or 
retirement of a professor because 
of his views and no case in which 
the government intervened to 
control what was taught, read, or 
said on campus. Article 23 of 
Japan's post war constitution states 
that "academic freedom is guaran- 
teed."

When the Board of Trustees of Muhlenberg College con- 
venes next Wednesday, December 6, the agenda will include 
faculty promotions and tenure — and a report from the sub- 
committee which has been studying Muhlenberg speaker 
policy. 

Very little has been said within the last three weeks con- 
cerning the visiting speaker issue which began at the last 
Board meeting October 11. However, some of the things 
which were said at the outset of the melee are worthy of 
being repeated at this time of anticipation. 

We reaffirm our solid support of President Erling N. 
Jensen concerning responsible academic freedom in the area 
of inviting speakers to the campus. Wherein we feel it is 
advisable, indeed necessary, to have effective consultation 
between administration, faculty and students before extend- 
ing an invitation to any speaker, we do not recognize the 
need for the power of veto to be granted to an adviser. The 
duty of an adviser shall be exactly as the title suggests, that 
is to confer with students regarding their selection of cam- 
pus speakers. 

We believe that the maturity of the students of Muhlen- 
berg College, enhanced by the education afforded by this 
institution, enables the student to make critical evalua- 
tions both of the content of the speakers' material and of the 
modes of presentation employed by the speakers. This im- 
plies that the College does not necessarily advocate the 
views expressed by the speakers. 

The atmosphere of an academic community such as Muh- 
lenberg is the most appropriate place to present a diversity 
of viewpoints, to encourage mature selection of speakers, 
and to develop in students the ability to make value judg- 
ments. 



Ghost writer Holier to prove 
belief in spirits by photos 



Parapsychologist and author 
Hans Holzer will discuss "Scien- 
tific Evidence for Ghosts" using 
slides in the December 1, 10 a.m. 
Garden Room assembly which is 
sponsored by the Sophomore Class. 

Holzer presently holds the posi- 
tion of Director of the New York 
Committee for the Investigation of 
Paranormal Occurrences in addi- 
tion to being a member of the Col- 
lege of Psychic Science in London. 

Author of ESP and You, Ghost 
Hunter, Ghosts I've Met, The Live- 
ly Ghosts of Ireland, and Yankee 
Ghosts, Holzer will show photo- 
graphs as evidence supporting his 
belief in ghosts. 

Holzer studied archoeology and 
history at the University of Vienna 
and worked at Columbia Univer- 
sity. He is a trained journalist 
who had experience writing on 
news syndicate and column level. 

In addition Holzer was a foreign 
correspondent and an extensively 
published magazine writer. He 
also has been under study grants 
to investigate haunted houses and 
psychics for the leading American 
parapsychological foundation. 

He has lectured at American, 
English, and German universities 
as well as to many American clubs. 

Holzer has appeared on over two 
hundred fifty television and radio 



programs, including all major net- 
work shows and most of the local 
United States' shows in addition 
to leading British, French, German, 
Austrian, and Swiss networks. 

Having presented several tele- 
vision specials about his work he 
is now preparing a syndicated tele- 
vision documentary 



Development plans optimistic; 
science building given priority 



Ever since the talk last year 
concerning an addition to the 
Science Building and its subse- 
quent rejection, there have been 
many inquiries into Muhlenberg's 
plans for future building. The 
long-range plans are still rather 
sketchy, but the addition to the 
Science Building has retained top 
priority. 

Instead of extending the build- 
ing to the back of the present 
Science Building as was formerly 
planned, the addition will connect 
to the west door and extend to the 
edge of the mall in front of Brown 
Hall. The Biology Building, as 
the annex will be called, is to 



consist primarily of biology class- 
rooms and laboratories and will be 
connected to the original building 
by means of a biology museum. 
The museum, which is presently 
operated in the basement of the 
Student Union, has been pushed 
from room to room and building 
to building since it was founded. 
The Biology Building will fin- 
ally provide it with the appro- 
priate exhibition room which it 
has long needed. 

The construction of a Humani- 
ties Center has been debated for 
many years and is today the sec- 
ond consideration of the long- 
er, on pagt 2 



Expenses rise, 
tuition follows 

A short while ago, parents re- 
ceived the inevitable letter from 
President Jensen announcing a 
raise in the cost to attend Muhlen- 
berg CoUege in 1968-69 and 1969- 
70. The board charges will be in- 
creased $25 and the room charges 
will be increased $20 for the aca- 
demic year 1968-69. In the follow- 
ing year, 1969-70, the tuition will 
be increased $200, making the tui- 
tion $1950 a year. 

With the inevitable announce- 
ment go the inevitable answers to 
the inquiries concerning the raise 
in charges. The first of these is 
that "we must maintain quality 
education." In order to continue 
quality education in a period of 
inflation, we must charge more. 
The second reason is that the raise 
in all the charges will enable Muh- 
lenberg to continue operation with 
a balanced budget in accordance 
with sound financial practices. 

The majority of the funds from 
the raise in charges will go into 
salary increases. These salary in- 
creases are necessary to: 

1. keep up with the rising cost of 
living. 

2. compete with other colleges and 
universities for a good faculty 
when there is a shortage of 
qualified teachers. 

3. compete with the 6 or 7 percent 
union wage increase for certain 
employees. 

The salary increases will enable 
Muhlenberg to continue its quality 
education. 

In the letter to parents, Presi- 
dent Jensen promises that "Muh- 
lenberg College wtU continue to

Council discusses problems, 

speaker resolution 



approves 

At the last Student Council 
meeting, Miss Anne Nugent, Dean 
of Women, and Griffith Dudding, 
English instructor, were present to 
discuss problems of student gov- 
ernment in connection with the 
Student Life Committee. 

Following this discussion, which 
lasted approximately an hour, the 
regular Student Council meeting 
proceeded. Martha Schlenker in- 
troduced a statement on the as- 
sembly speaker program policy, 
which stated that « . . The presi- 
dent of the Student Council shall 
appoint a chairman of the as- 
sembly program committee whose 
responsibility shall be the selec- 
tion of assembly speakers. A com- 
mittee of students and the adviser 
of the Student Council shall aid 
the chairman in the Initial selec- 
tion of speakers of which the final 
selection shall be subject to ap- 



proval by a majority vote of the 
Student Council." Rich Bennett 
moved to adopt this resolution, and 
it was passed 13-0-0. 

In response to a petition. Presi- 
dent Erling N. Jensen authorized 
an evening assembly speaker pro- 
gram under the conditions that it 
be a trial program for the spring 
semester, that there be good rea- 
son for having the assembly at 
night, that the program would not 
conflict with any other evening 
program, that not more than two 
programs be so scheduled, and that 
Dean Dierolf approves the ar- 
rangements through his office. 

A contract has been received for 
the Young Rascals for the first Big 
Name of next semester, February 
10. Names are still being suggest- 
ed for the second Big Name.

from a combination of a theater

in one building to a flne arts cen-

and a separate humanities build- 
ing containing classrooms, offices,

The newest idea, based on the 
realization of Muhlenberg's crying 
need for a theater, is to build a

future may remain standing alone 
or be transformed into the hub of 
an entire humanities complex.

Considering money, location, and 
parking facilities, it is the College's 
primary concern to build an aes- 
theticaly beautiful and acoustically 
sound theater which may be the 
setting of good dramatic and musi- 
cal college productions. 

Third priority is being given to 
improved library facilities. Whe- 
ther the renovation will be in the 
form of an addition to the old li- 
brary or the construction of a new 
library Is still undetermined. 

Following the improvement of 
the Science Building, theater, and 
library, the College will look 
toward constructing a swimming 
pool and squash courts, a women's 
gymnasium, a new men's residence 
hall, and a large-group auditori- 
um. 

The overall building plan of the 
College has always been to keep 
the academic buildings in a cen- 
tral semicircle, surrounded by the 
athletic fields and houses and 
residence accomodations. Keeping 
this in mind, the College has con- 
tracted a long-range architectural 
firm to continually consider the 
building needed and their pros- 
pective location, as well as the 
general physical lay-out of Muh- 
lenberg College. 

George Gibbs, director of De- 
velopment and a man who has 
shown active interest in this plan- 
ning, sees great possibilities for 
Muhlenberg and has hopes for its 
future improvement. Says he, 
"Muhlenberg has made some 
architectural mistakes in the past, 
and, I'm quick to add, will make 
some also in the future. But 
through on-going studies of what 
is needed, we can eliminate the 
majority of errors by using the 
thoughts and ideas of students, 
faculty, administration, trustees, 
and professional people, and do 
the best job in terms of needs of 
Muhlenberg College." 



MET performs

Waiting for Godot, a tragic <

gon, John Tomasi as Vladimir, 
Mark Schannon as Pozzo, Freder- 
ick Hawkins as Lucky, and Kris 
Martin as The Boy. 

The events that occur while two 
tramps are awaiting Godot com- 
prise the story. Beckett, the au- 
thor, states, "If I knew who Godot 
was, I'd tell you." Schannon, the 
director, states, "Godot could be 
anything from God to general wish 
fulfillment." 

General admission Is $1.00, stu- 
dent admission is $.25.

According to informed sources, 
only one quarter of male fresh- 
men have a 1.8 or better scholastic 
average which is necessary by col-

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Interview supplies 
homosexual view 



by Daniel Pettyjohn 



It is probably true that the stu- 
dent body was generally disap- 
pointed when in September the 
president of the Mattachine So- 
ciety, Richard Leitch, was unable 
to deliver his lecture on homosex- 
uality. John Blend and I, being 
among those who wished to hear 
the subject discussed travelled to 
New York on the night of October 
19 to interview Leitch. Blend was 
to use the information for a debate 
on campus and was responsible for 
arranging the interview. 

Leitch was unable to accomo- 
date us, however, and we had to 
satisfy ourselves with three other 
members of the Society. We were 
fortunate, though, because rather 
than the official information that 
Leitch would no doubt have pro- 
vided, we obtained three surpris- 
ingly different points of view on 
certain aspects of homosexuality. 

The three gentlemen interview- 
ed will be referred to only by the 
names, Roger, Chuck, and Ben. 
They all have in common a situa- 
tion that is not typical of the com- 
mon garden homosexual, for they 
are all closely allied with the 
Mattachine Society which provides 
comfort both in aid in finding em- 
ployment and in the knowledge 
that they are not alone in the 
world, a feeling which often en- 
velops the socially aberrant person.

of these associations are elected by 
the student body of the faculty 
concerned. Because of the apathy 
of the majority of the students 
these associations are usually un- 
der the control of rather small 
factions and these factions are 
usually left-wing. These student 
associations in each faculty are 
linked in national federations de- 
pending on their ideological orien- 
tation. Before the Security Treaty 
riots of 1960 the Zengakuren, or 
Federation of Student Self-gov- 
erning Associations, was clearly 
dominant. About 1958 the leaders 
of this Zengakuren had been ex- 
pelled from the Japan Communist 
Party for "left-wing deviation," 
ie. for advocating more violent and 
aggressive action than the Com- 
munist Party considered expedi- 
ent. The Zengakuren, rather than 
the Japan Communist Party, was 
the most active group in the 1960 
riots. Disillusionment set in after 
the riots and in the subsequent 
years the Zengakuren. split into a 
number of factions. There is a 
very small Democratic Socialist 
student group, at least two Social- 
ist student groups, a mainstream 
Japan Communist Party student 
group, splinters of pro-Peking or 
pro-Moscow communists, and at 
least four Marxist student groups 
which are not associated with the 
communist or socialist parties. It 
is these four which are now usual- 
ly spoken of as the Zengakuren. 
They are sometimes described as 
Trotskyist although that designa- 
tion adds little to understanding. 
It is these four which were respon- 
sible for a violent demonstration 
at Haneda airport on October 8 of 
this year when they sought to pre- 
vent the departure of Premier Sato 
to Southeast Asia. Severals years 
ago a handful of Zengakuren lead- 
ers were beaten up by the police 
in Moscow for trying to stage a 
demonstration in the Red Square. 



These three have been able to ad- 
just to their situations rather well. 

First, the nature of the Matta- 
chine Society was discussed. While 
it functions officially as a civil 
rights organization, it also strives 
to educate the public to the fact, 
in Chuck's words, "that homosex- 
uality is a person's sexual persua- 
sion and nothing more." Not only 
does it educate the general public, 
the society is also supposed to edu- 
cate homosexuals. When asked if

English Journal publishes 
Graber's baseball article 

by Ed Leefeldt 

" 'Safe home!' rang the voice of 
the umpire. Then another roar, 
louder, wilder, full of unbounded 
joy! The band, drowned by the 
uproar! The sight of sturdy lads 
in blue, delerious with delight, 
hugging a dust-covered youth, 
lifting him to their shoulders, and 
bearing him away in triumph!" 

Muhlenberg? No. The "dust- 
covered youth" is Frank Merriwell, 
and his diamond is the dime-store 
book counter of the early 1900's. 
Frank Merriwell is only one of the 
heroes from Dr. Ralph Graber's 
"Baseball in American Fiction," 
which is found In the Enflish 
Journal for November, 1967. To 
Dr. Graber, as to Mark Twain and 
Jacques Barzun, "Baseball is the 
. . . outward and visible expres- 
sion ... of the heart and mind of 
America. Whoever wants to know 
. . . America had better learn base- 
ball." 

Dr. Graber, himself once a semi- 
pro and now a member of the Col- 
lege English department, is also 
the author of The Baseball Read- 
er, an anthology of baseball stories 
from which he drew much of the 
information for his article. He 
recognizes two trends in baseball 
literature. The first is the uphill 
climb of the baseball story from 
the juvenile literature of the early 
1900's to the adult literature of 
today, which concentrates on hu- 
man relationships rather than the 
game itself. The second Is the 
change in character of the hero. 
The "Mr. Varsity" of Frank Merri- 
well's day has been replaced by 
the stumbling, immoral, too-of- 
ten-drunken professional, who, 
when asked If he has thrown a 
game, can only stand in the street 
and weep openly. "Say it ain't 
true, 'Roy,' " pleads a newspaper- 
boy. 

But It is true. The baseball 
fiction of today is concentrating on 
the action behind the headlines, on 
the broken-down pitcher of Nel- 
son Algren's Never Come Morning 
or on the arrogance of Ring Lard- 
ner's superstars when they are on 
top, and their subsequent humility 
when they have fallen. It probes 
the fallacy of making a "Knight- 
errant of the diamond" out of an 
ordinary man with feet of clay. 

In fact, if the article has a fault, 
It is that it is not long enough. 
He has only time to mention Day- 
mon Runyon's "Baseball Hattie," 
in which a one-time prostitute 
shoots her pitcher-husband In the 
arm rather than see him throw a 
game or James Thurberis "You 
Could Look It UP," in which a 
midget loses the World Series. 

But Dr. Graber is going for the 
double play. His next article up 
to bat will be a review of boxing 
literature. We hope he scores 
again. 



other than Jackie Vernon — the 
sulky, laconic humorist from New 
York's Borsch circuit. Anyone 
who expected a "sock it to me 
baby" virtuoso met the unexpected 
that night. For, Jackie Is "dead- 
pan." 

One of the first things that 
draws your attention to Vernon is 
his size — he is awfully big. Com- 
pared to the originality of his 
humor, which was awfully small, 
we arrive at perhaps the only 
Ironically funny thing about his 
act. Only months before, on the 
Ed Sullivan Show, Vernon had put 
the same touch Into his life his- 
tory, showed the same "slides" and 
created his own encore — I.e. ". . . 
a little applause, please, for the 
suit." And, sorry to say, most of 
his material was used before — by 
other entertainers. Those In at- 
tendance, though, proved them- 
selves masters of the mini-ha-ha, 
drearily applauding 35 minutes of 
re treaded comedy. 

If there is one word to describe 
the actress that followed, the en- 
tertainment she provided, the ap- 
plause she received and deserved, 
that word most certainly would be 
empathela. Miss Dionne Warwick 
— Scepter Records' Cinderella girl 
and exclusive vocalist for Burt 
Bacharach's and Hal David's melo- 
dious melodies — gave one grand 
performance. 

Attired in high boots and a 
simple mini-dress, instead of her 
customary plnk-sequlned gown 
and patent leather heels. Miss

Warwick gave a little more than 
her fair share of the concert. 
Against unmistakably high odds, 
she empathised. It did not matter 
that her accompanying players 
never posted, that she would have 
to settle for a three-piece, make- 
shift ensemle, that the acoustics 
were terrible, or that it took her 
"... a year to find this place 
called Muhlenberg." Dionne com- 
municated. She sent shivers down 
spines, tears around eyes, and 
smiles across faces for seemingly 
no reason at all. 

Dionne warmed hearts with a 
voice as pleasingly good in person 
as can be found inside the grooves 
of her stereo counterparts. Ramb- 
ling through hits like "Here I Am," 
"You'll Never Get to Heaven," 
"Alfie," "A House is Not a Home," 
and her latest, "I Say a Little 
Prayer," Miss Warwick attached 
significance to Lloyd Shearer's 
cliche: "She has been and still is 
our top-notch Negro canary." 

It seemed that Dionne felt more 
at home with her own off-Broad- 
way sound than with the occa- 
sional show music she rendered. 
But there was one precious 
quality envoked by Miss War- 
wick, and something inherent 
to her personality that envoked it 
— that pushed her concert over 
the borderline of entertainment to 
a serious work of art, this was the 
basic way she communicated with 
her audience — it was not so much 
what she said, but the personality 
that made it all come across!

Key to life 



Yes it has finally happened! Next semester junior women 
will be able to escape the confines of curfews. We want to 
thank the administration for giving the juniors an oppor- 
tunity to prove that they are just as responsible as the seniors. 

The Junior Key Program may not be ideal but it cer- 
tainly is workable. There will probably be a few problems 
with it but that is to be expected with anything new, and 
there is every reason to expect that, with the past success of 
the senior program and the high quality of Muhlenberg stu- 
dents most problems will be with implementation not with 
use of the keys. We would urge all the women however to 
remember that the key is considered a privilege, and as such 
must be used responsibly for the safety of program and of 
the women themselves. 



Underwhelming yearbook... 

Finally two weeks before the end of first semester 1967- 
68 we have received the Ciarla for 1966-67. What there is of 
the yearbook is creative, varied, different from the cold two- 
row group pictures of years past. But when one closes his 
1967 Ciarla there is a sense of void, of something missing. 
That "something missing" turns out to be most of last year's 
events and people. Many of the most significant occurrences 
and people which were vital to Muhlenberg 1966-67 just can- 
not be found in the Ciarla. 

For instance, one looks at the two-page spread entitled 
Guest Lecturers and begins to wonder if the yearbook is not 
our own worst enemy when it comes to giving a balanced 
picture of the College's speaker agenda. Sure enough there 
are Timothy Leary and Allen Ginsberg, but what about 
James Farmer, Jack Vaughn, Albert Ellis, David Reisman, 
Mark Lane? At least the yearbook might have included a 
listing of some of these impressive speakers if their pictures 
were unavailable. 

Secondly, the campus student leaders are given no recog- 
nition in the Ciarla. By fact of their selection into such groups 
as Omicron Delta Kappa and Lambda Epsilon Delta, the 
members of these leadership organizations are considered 
Muhlenberg's BMOC's and their female counterparts. How- 
ever, ODK is not in the yearbook, LED is not in the year- 
book, and, furthermore, the students selected into Who's 
Who in American Universities and Colleges are not identi- 
fied in the Ciarla. 

Likewise, many of the most popular and colorful teachers 
are eliminated from inclusion in the annual. Most notice- 
ably, the history department lacks representation in the per- 
sons of Victor Johnson, John Reed, Katherine Van Eerde, 
and Earl Jennison. And Dean Edwin Baldridge is listed as 
Dean Edwin BALDWIN. Then there is Dr. Adolph of the 
German department who is listed as Miss Rhodda who was 
not even here last year. 

Typographical errors such as John Piper being called the 
MCA wrestling champion are to be expected. Incompleteness 
is not acceptable. 

The cost of publishing the Ciarla is just short of $10,000. 
With this amount of money we could have thirty more assem- 
bly speakers this year. And considering that Andy Warhol 
of pop Campbell soup can fame was turned down as a guest 
for Festival of the Arts because he charged too much — 
$1500 — one questions the real worth of the yearbook.

School 



•flm-ao by H. BAT HAAS * CO.. Allearowa. 



Allentown, Pa., November 30, 1967 



Rereading the opening Convocation of 1966, I was amazed that a speech, supposedly 
sophisticated, could be so outrageously trite — the address contains some of the most monu- 
mental platitudes. "Fortunately here at Muhlenberg a liberal education is the education 
we believe befits all men. . . . The greatest value of a liberal arts education is that it defies 
and enhances man's power of intellectual precision and mental adaptability, cultivates in- 
dependent judgment, makes man more sensitively refined, better informed, more generous 
in mind and spirit and inspires him to give himself in service to God and man." 

Ugh. 

The myth of the church-related liberal arts college as an educational Valhalla dies hard. 
There is a large discrepancy between the glorious phrases and the reality of education at 
Muhlenberg; in many areas, Muhlenberg is nothing more than a difficult high school. 

Any student can name the gut courses and joke departments. And there are several of 
both. For example, I submit that education, especially a liberal one, requires extensive 
reading. Yet it is possible to take several courses without even reading the texts, much 
less the supplemental readings. Education, I submit, requires a mixture of the old classics 
and the new ideas. Yet it is possible to take courses that have neither old nor new ideas; 
the required reading lists are without books by Lippman, Niebuhr, Galbraith, Mumford, 
Goodman, et al. These men are among the most important men of our century and an 
education that fails to expose students to them is not an adequate education. 

Muhlenberg does have several outstanding departments, courses and teachers; by select- 
ing carefully, a student can get a fine education. But instead of self-indulging speeches to 
impress alumni or parents, the school should — must — strive to strengthen its weak areas. 



Church affiliation found beneficial; 
minimal doctrinal influences felt 



by Barbara Dunenkamp 

"Church affiliation" is an aspect 
of Muhlenberg College that has 
been present since 1860, and one 
that has caused its meaning, func- 
tions, and form many times in the 
century following. 

A modern aspect of our church 
relatedncss was established In 1874 
when the charter of the College 
was changed so that the Ministeri- 
um of Pennsylvania (which had 
purchased the College property in 
1867 upon the recommendation of 
s committ©© of lflymcn fljid clcrjjy 
of the Allentown area) became 
responsible for the election of a 
majority of the college trustees. 
Today, at the yearly meeting of 
the Synod, approximately 1,000 
people, including an equal number 
of clergy and laymen, select a ma- 
jority of the Board of Trustees of 
Muhlenberg College. 

Eighteen members are chosen by 
the Eastern Pennsylvania Synod, 
the successor to the Ministerium. 
Nine of these must be Lutheran 
clergymen; the remaining nine 
may be either clergy or lay mem- 
bers. The Slovak Zion Synod elects 
one member; nine additional are 
chosen from various states, occu- 



pations and creeds by the Board 
members themselves; and three 
members are chosen by the alumni 
association. This yields a total of 
31 elected members plus three ex 
officia members: the president of 



the College, the president of the 
Eastern Pennsylvania Synod, and 
the president of the Slovak Zion 
Synod.

George Eichorn noted that since

In future appeals, however, 
Vaughn plans to write letters to 
the local boards describing the cir- 
cumstances in each case and urging 
board members to grant a defer- 
ment until completion of the vol- 
unteer's overseas tour. 

"We have a serious situation," 
Vaughn said. "Pulling a volunteer 
off a productive job at mid-tour 
is unfair to the nation, the host 
country, the Peace Corps, and the 
individual." 

Peace Corps volunteers have lost 
about 50 deferment appeals before 
the three-man board in the last six

of these have occurred in the past

Buildings reflect 
history of College 



by Karen Haefelein 



There is an interesting history 
behind the buildings of Muhlen- 
berg College which few people 
have bothered to investigate. One 
person who has, however, Is the 
College's Assistant Business Man- 
ager, George Neumann. Although 
Neumann has been at Muhlenberg 
only five years, he has learned 
much about the past and present 
structure of the campus' buildings, 
largely through study of a 1916 
building plan of the College and 
recently discovered architectural 
drawings which date back to 1904. 

The 1916 plan hangs in Neu- 
mann's office. A colored drawing 
on fine paper, it shows the College 
the way it was in 1916, with pro- 
visions for future expansion such 
as faculty residences on campus, 
an outmoded idea which has been 
replaced by the construction of 
fraternity houses on the campus 
outskirts. 

The 1904 building plans are 
drawn on fine linen, expensive 
paper no longer used for such 
drawings. They were discovered 
last year by Mrs. James Everett, 
wife of the College's first architect, 
who offered them to Muhlenberg. 
Before 1966, the College had no 
exact records of the structure of 
its first buildings. 

Ettinger Building — Home of 
Gym and Bicycle Room 

Ettinger Building, now the main 
administration and classroom 
building, was built in 1904 as 
Muhlenberg's only academic build- 
ing. Its basement contained such 
diverse structures as a gymnasium, 
assembly hall, locker rooms, coat 
room, bicycle room, and a living 
and bedroom. The first floor 
housed, as it does today, the presi- 
dent's room, plus a chapel, treasur- 
er's office, and recitation rooms. 
Second floor was divided into a 
biology laboratory and museum, 
the physics department, a library, 
and recitation rooms. Third floor 
was filled with unspecified class- 
rooms. The building was then 
equipped with an elevator. 

The flre which ravaged the 
building in 1946 left only the 3Vz- 



foot thick walls and exterior stand- 
ing. When rebuilding gave Etting- 
er the floor system it has today, it 
stripped it of its clock tower, 
which was much the same as the 
library's tower. 

Math and Education Building;

In 1904 the Math and Education 
Building was also built to be used 
as the president's residence. The

house was used as such until 1964, 
when the president moved to 
North Leh Street and the dean 
moved into the house. The build- 
ing was renovated in 1966 to hold 
offices and classrooms for the 
mathematics and education de- 
partments. 

East Hall, the present boys' 
dorm, was built in 1904 when 
Muhlenberg had an entirely male 
student body. The dormitory was 
built in three sections and has 
always been used as a residence 
hall. 

The boiler house, built in 1904, 
had but one coal boiler until 1950 
when it was renovated. In 1965

Swain outlines development 
in nostalgic Berg chronicle 



by 

In a succinct, serious, yet often 
humorous tone, Dr. James E. 
Swain relates the lengthy and 
somehow great story of Muhlen- 
berg College. A History of Muh- 
lenberg College 1848-1967 shows 
the college's growth from only 25 
students and eight staff members 
to the present enrollment of 1400 
students and 120 faculty members. 

Swain, who has served Muhlen- 
berg for over 40 years, seems to 
hide behind some of the lines in 
his text and chuckle, "Those were 
the good ole days." 

And so they were. But the tran- 
sition is immeasurable. The fac- 
ulty of eight taught 16 courses. 
German principles, Greek, and 
Latin were emphasized. An 1883 
issue of the weekly includes a stu- 
dents' plea for more science cours- 
es. And Swain relates that they 
were soon offered. 

Much of the Muhlenberg story 
is a history of finances. Funds 
were always a major problem. (A 
photo of a 1904 receipt of tuition 
and board shows the total at 
$33.80.) Swain inter-relates the 
job of the president in fostering 
academic, cultural and financial 
growth with unique character 
sketches of the men who have held 
the position. The dynamic charac- 
ter of the college's fourth presi- 
dent, John W. Haas, is especially 
well presented. 

Also of interest is the 1904 move 
to the "west end." The college 
had been located downtown, and 
Swain calls the move "quite an 



affair, — a combination grind with Swain's true humor as well as that 



headaches and sore muscles, with- 
in a carnival spirit." The then new 
Berks Hall was reported to have 
been "indeed sheer luxury." 

Seeds of the beginnings of dis- 
cussion concerning athletic policy 
were sown as early as the twen- 
ties. "Organized and inter-college 
competition in athletics provided 
one of the most controversial is- 
sues." Swain relates the trials of 
many students and staff members 
to bring greater athletic competi- 
tion to the church-related college. 

Many interesting and humorous 
facts were uncovered by Swain 
during his years of research into 
Berg's history: the Lyric Theater 
once housed a commencement 
ceremony (posters in full view!); 
honorary degrees were awarded in 
1911 to Theodore Roosevelt, Wood- 
row Wilson, and Emperor William 
III of Germany; chapel credits 
were a target for student dissent 
as early as 1925; allusions to the 
"age-old controversy" concerning 
co-education took place long be- 
fore its 1957 institution; and Muh- 
lenberg College was in neon lights 
over Madison Square Garden in 
1947. 

One fact which might already 
be considered out of date is that 
which states that academic free- 
dom has never been of grave im- 
portance at Berg. Also, a state- 
ment referring to the "no longer 
crucial" rivalries in campus poli- 
tics is debatable. 

The chapter entitled "Mirth, 
Myth,, and Miracle" brings out 



of many students. According to 
the history book, Muhlenberg's 11 
did play Lafayette and NYU 
(that's no joke!). A tale of a 
cadaver used by pre-med students 
in 1906 and how it ended up in a 
freshman dorm provides interest- 
ing speculation concerning the 
passivity of the campus. An inci- 
dent involving one Dr. John Bau- 
man, whose test questions were 
perenially stolen during pre-Hon- 
or Code days, also provides a few 
laughs. Teedy Simpson, a prof in 
the thirties, took cigar bribes and 
Oscar Bernheim was everything on 
this campus from secretary to the 
president to the Superintendent of 
buildings and grounds. 

In "Restrospect" and "Prospect" 
the final chapters of the 212 page 
volume, Swain reviews and pre- 
views many aspects of the college. 
Quotes from alumni and faculty 
provide interesting insight into the 
future of the institution. 

Swain relates that the last page 
of his history is not "The End." 
His hopes are that future chron- 
iclers of the history of Muhlen- 
berg College will record a story 
of continued, accelerated progress 
and brighter prospects. One who 
reads Dr. Swain's book knows that 
the next chronicler who writes A 
History of Muhlenberg College 
1967-? will have quite a job. It 
will be a great task Indeed to 
duplicate the unique and engaging 
style of Swain's A History of 
Muhlenberg College 1848-1967. 



Philosophical 'Marlboro man' Reed drags logic 
from confused depths of freshman intellect 



by Debbie Burin 

The man — David Reed. 

His job — Head of the Depart- 
ment of Philosophy at Muhlenberg. 

His cigarette — You name it and 
he'll smoke it. 

Admittedly a brief sketch of the 
man, yet following his first class 



Choir obtains highest commendation; 
guests Watson, Dodds perform solos 



by Peter Hulac 
( lass of 1967 

The Sacred Concert of the col- 
lege choir on November 19 was 
an outstanding accomplishment for 
Professor Lenel and the members 
of the choir. The sound they pro- 
duced was very mature and the 
blend was excellent. Gabrielle's 
"Canzona for Brass" opened the 
program. Although the quartet 
had some difficulty with tempo 
changes and synchronization, the 
overall tone was good. The chap- 
el's acoustics seem weU suited for 
brass works. 

Jacob Handl's motet: "Alleluia, 
Cantate Domino Canticum Novum" 
was the choir's first number, and 
the vitality of the voices brought 
out the meaningful words. A quar- 
tet sang the parts of a second choir, 
but there was some difficulty hear- 
ing them. At times, however, Don 
Peck let his love for the music 
affect his volume, and the bass part 
was the only audible one. 

Cantata No. 150 by J. S. Bach 
again demonstrated the choir's 
agility. The stacatto effects were 
excellent and helped to bring 
across the very descriptive words. 
The strings were disappointing, 
however, because they seemed ob- 



sessed with maintaining their own 
tempo and volume in spite of 
Lenel's definite conducting. The 
stiffness of the violins protruded 
at times. Mrs. Evelyn Watson's 
faultless interpretation of the so- 
prano solo parts was excellent. 

Because of Affiliate Artist Nor- 
man Paige's illness, New York 
tenor David Dodds filled in. He Is 
to be commended for his work in 
spite of the very short notice and 
the difficulty of solo singing in the 
chapel. Unfortunately the strings 
were too loud and insensitive, and 
Dodds' range failed at both ends 
to meet the demands of Schuetz's 
"Ich Werde Nicht Sterben." Also 
his voice seemed a little throaty 
and his pronunciation of the Ger- 
man was not good. At this point 
it should also be suggested that the 
college purchase a carpeted po- 
dium to muffle the beat of Pro- 
fessor Lenel's foot. 

In Johann Michael Bach's "I 
Know that My Redeemer Lives" 
and in "Jesus Is All My Being" 
by J. S. Bach the choir's blend was 
again good although it was a little 
loud. J. S. Bach's Cantata No. 160 
was evidently a difficult assign- 
ment, because both the violin and 
the tenor had 



trouble with intonation. There was 
also a dearth of embellishment in 
spite of many opportunities to in- 
clude it. 

"Bachianas Brasilieras No. 5" by 
Heitor Villa Lobos was outstand- 
ing. The cellos, although at times 
too loud, played expressively, and 
stayed under the director's con- 
trol. Mrs. Watson's fine voice 
made this difficult piece one of the 
program's highlights. 

The climax of the evening was 
Professor Lenel's recent Four 
Canticles. The composition itself 
is very stimulating and haunting. 
The emotion of both the music and 
the words — from a poem by an 
eleventh century Spanish Jew — 
show that it is unfair to criticize 
contemporary composers for writ- 
ing dispassionate and cerebral mu- 
sic. It was unfortunate that the 
strings did not put in enough prac- 
tice time, but they did fairly well. 
The choir overcame the complexity 
of the piece and sang well in both 
the loud and the quiet passages. 
Any errors were well concealed. 

AU in all highest commendations 
should go to Professor Lenel, the 
members of the choir, Mrs. Watson 
and David Dodds. They performed 
their strenuous program with facil- 
ity and skill. 



in the introductory logic course 
each freshman will be able to tell 
you that the sketch is valid. In 
subsequent meetings of the class 
the attentive freshman can enlarge 
his knowledge of logic but will find 
out little more about David Reed 
personally. 

That "little more" is that Reed's 
class and all of his actions revolve 
around one ever present factor, 
the cigarette. While Reed does not 
remain stationary during the class 
period his only movement, a slow 
deliberate walk to his distinctive 
trash can ash tray, is caused by 
the need to flick the ashes from 
the cigarette. He accomplishes this 
task rather emphatically. Reed 
also employs hand gestures while 
lecturing and it is during this time 
he appears to use his cigarette to 
punctuate the point he is attempt- 
ing to make. The "smoke" is so 
much a part of Reed that lit or 
un-lit it is usually in hand. A 
story is told that once, in the 
course of a lecture, while holding 
a cigarette in one hand he pro- 
ceeded to puff on his pen. In his 
lectures Reed maintains the slow 
deliberate pace witnessed in his 
manner of smoking by weighing 
each word prior to saying it. He 
knows the subject matter and can 
put it across. 

Exams in logic are few and con- 
sequently important. To Reed 
neatness is important and it fol- 
lows logically that It should be 
equally important to his students. 
He fails to see why the male stu- 
dents are constantly more careless 
than the females in writing exams. 
He also finds It difficult to under- 
stand why his Intro classes feel 
obligated to cram all of the an- 
swers to an exam into the first 
three pages of a sixteen page yel- 
low book. 

With regard to the difficulty of 




DAVID REED— Part of the uni- 
versal set. 

the introductory logic course Reed 
has been heard to say, "that you 
either understand it or you don't, 
that's the type of course it is. They 
usually pass or fail, there's no 
inbetween." 

As stated, one does not learn 
much about Reed the person in 
class. To gain this knowledge one 
needs to go outside the classroom 
area. Reed is a frequenter of the 
snack bar almost daily and is 
quite willing to strike up a con- 
versation about almost anything. 
Another facet of Reed is his musi- 
cal talent. He is an accomplished 
pianist. This semester he presented 
a recital with Joe Gulka, a junior 
at Berg. Each spring at the faculty 
recital Reed continues to amaze 
students who seem to associate 
him only with truth tables and 
Venn diagrams. 

The man — David Reed. 

His cigarette — Unimportant. 

His job — To impart knowledge 
and perhaps a bit of culture to

Big Boulder plugs 
ski club gathering 



Marilyn Hertz, director of the 
ski school at Big Boulder Ski Area 
in Lake Harmony, Pennsylvania, 
was the guest speaker at the ski 
club meeting held in the Union 
last Tuesday evening. She dis- 
cussed the new ski school program 
which will be instituted at Big 
Boulder this year, as well as many 
other valuable aspects of the area 
which should be of extreme inter- 
est to anyone planning to ski or 
hoping to learn this winter. 

The Big Boulder ski instructors 
will be using the Natur Teknik 
method of teaching skiing this sea- 
son. By means of this method a 
beginning skiier is taught the 
fundamentals of paralleling (nor- 
mally an advanced skill which 
takes a few years to master) in 
the very first lessons. A Learn-to- 
Ski-Week plan has been adopted 
to facilitate instruction and it in- 



Illness forces 
Paige to cancel 

Unfortunately Muhlenberg's 
highly acclaimed and popular 
Affiliate Artist Norman Paige has 
been forced to cancel ail appear- 
ances for an undesignated period 
of time due to illness. The young 
tenor had appeared fatigued at 
recent concerts and is now in the 
Monteflore Hospital in Bronx un- 
der care for what apparently ap- 
pears to be hepatitis. 

Paige was to have appeared at 
least three times within this past 
week in the Allentown area. Pre- 
vious concerts here have drawn 
praise from all audiences, especial- 
ly his assembly lecture-demon- 
stration in the Garden Room Fri- 
day, November 10. 

Another Muhlenberg personality 
has recently been hospitalized for 
a week. President Erling N. Jen- 
sen is currently under treatment 
for a kidney stone and is under- 
taking a limited schedule of work 
until the condition is corrected. 



eludes five days of skiing, Monday 
to Friday, with unlimited use of 
the lifts and tows, ten half-day 
lessons, and special rates on ski 
equipment for only $28.00. 

A new lounge augmenting the 
main restaurant and chalet. The 
Glass House, with seating for 150 
and serving of hot and cold food 
has been constructed at the base of 
the Little Boulder and Tannen- 
baum slopes. One other special 
feature at Big Boulder will be of 
particular interest to owners of 
Head skiis. The Head ski repair 
and finish department offers round 
the clock service, regardless of the 
trouble, and all skiis brought there 
are guaranteed to be ready for use 
again within 24 hours. 

Special group rates are available 
and the girls will be particularly 
fond of the low Ladies' Day rates 
offered every Tuesday. The area 
officially opens on December 16th 
and a very successful season is 
anticipated. Because of the excel- 
lent facilities and the proximity to 
the Muhlenberg campus, Big 
Boulder Ski Area is highly recom- 
mended for anyone planning to 
ski this season. 

Plans for the semester break ski 
trip to Whiteface Mt. New York, 
were also discussed at the meeting. 
There will be '42 ski club mem- 
bers, including ATO's Never-the- 
Less making the three day skiing 
trip during the days of January 
16-19 of intersession. The Lake 
Placid Area, having put in a bid 
for the 1976 Olympics, ofTers many 
fabulous extras. In addition to 
skiing there is a toboggan run, ski 
jumps, and indoor and outdoor ice 
skating. 



Church-relatedness probed 



from pagt 4 

1874, in polity, the College has 
been autonomous: the church does 
not own the Muhlenberg property 
and it gives no instructions to the 
Board it elects. 

Therefore, Muhlenberg is tech- 
nically neither -church-owned nor 
church-supported. The Lutheran 
Church, however, does lend Muh- 
lenberg "support" monetarily, and 
this annual gift has been consid- 
ered one of the most advantageous 
aspects of our church-relatedness. 

Indeed, the $227,000 received by 
Muhlenberg last year from the 
Eastern Pennsylvania and the Slo- 
vak Zion Synods is very helpful to 
the budget Citing a 20-year pe- 
riod, even more Imposing figures 
of $2,200,000 for current operating 
expenses and over $2,100,000 for 
capital purposes appear. 

With a yearly Income of about 
four million dollars, the college 
must draw from a variety of 
sources. Student fees and "auxil- 
iary enterprises" (room and 
board) account for over three mil- 
lion dollars yearly, or about 75 per 
cent of the school's income. 

It was noted that the church 
contributed the largest gift in the 
remaining million dollars of in- 
come. Yet, this gift from the 
church, that is responsible for the 
election of a majority of the board 
of trustees, comprises only a little 
more than six per cent of the total 
income. One might question the 
wide divergence here between in- 
fluence and monetary support 

As a major contributor to that 
fourth quarter of income, does the 
church determine that a certain 
number of Lutheran students re- 
ceive the benefits of the gift? The 
answer to this much-raised ques- 
tion has always been that there

Sales and 
Sales Management 
Training Program 



This Program is designed to develop young college 
graduates for careers in life insurance sales and 
sales management. It provides an initial training 
period of 3 months (including 2 weeks at a Home 
Office School) before moving into full sales work. 

Those trainees who are interested in and who are 
found qualified for management responsibility are 
assured of ample opportunity to move on to such 
work in either our field offices or in the Home Office 
after an initial period in sales. 

Aggressive expansion plans provide unusual op- 
portunities for those accepted.

lege Choir and the Chapel Choir 
will participate. The traditional 
carols will be sung, members of 
the College will participate in 
reading portions of the Christmas 
Story, and the service will con- 
clude with the lighting of the

As in the past, admission will be 
by complimentary ticket only. 
Tickets for both nights will be

cause of the interest in this service 
and the limited seating in the

are no quotas. Since Muhlenberg 
is by nature related to the Lu- 
theran church, college-aspiring 
Lutherans are naturally attracted 
to the College. It is said that no 
quotas are set, although the per- 
centage of Lutherans at Muhlen- 
berg is quite consistently 40 per 
cent. However, Eichorn noted that 
Lutheran applicants are given 
some consideration over other ap- 
plicants with similar qualifications 
but with different religious back- 
grounds. 

Monetary considerations and the 
election of the Trustees are only 
two aspects of church affiliation. 
Eichorn points out that the philo- 
sophical position of education at 
Muhlenberg is in agreement with 
the Lutheran church. To support 
this, he refers to a statement in 
the College catalogue: 

The College does not believe that 
there is a Christian version of all 
the arts and sciences, with which 
students are to be indoctrined; but 



rather that there is a Christian 
atmosphere of community in which 
learning flourishes, a Christian at- 
titude toward truth that is con- 
ducive to the highest accomplish- 
ment in education, and a Christian 
spirit of fellowship in the best tra- 
ditions of college and university 
history throughout the ages. 

This "Christian atmosphere of 
community" has its tangible as- 
pects in the presence on campus 
of a chapel and a full-time College 
chaplain. In addition, there are 
the required courses in religion 
taught by Lutheran ministers. 

When students choose a church- 
related school, they are usually 
aware of at least some of the more 
tangible parts of religious affilia- 
tion and partially base their 
choices on these aspects. In most 
situations, these facets contribute 
positively to the educational pro- 
gram and the college life desired 
by the total Muhlenberg com- 
munity. 



Homosexual views 



cited 



from. pe/i 3 

publicly effeminate homosexuals 
hurt their cause, all three agreed, 
but Chuck added that the society 
should persuade such people that 
they shouldn't be swallowing hook, 
line, and sinker, the moralistic so- 
ciety's garbage that a homosexual 
is less a man than a heterosexual." 

Chuck said that the society had 
been helpful to him personally in 
making clear the fact, as he says, 
"that my homosexuality has little 
or no bearing on my regular, 
everyday social intercourse with 
people . . . and that I'm not going 
to be spotted everytime I walk 
down a street." He also feels that 
the Mattachlne Society's educative 
work can have major social conse- 
quences: "If society took a more 
liberal attitude toward the homo- 
sexual and dropped this slssifled 
notion about the homosexual there 
might be more of an incidence of 
homosexual experimentation but 
far less fixated homosexuals." This 
is also the opinion of the Kinsey 
Report. 

The other major concern of the 
interview was the question of the 
ethics of homosexual behavior. 
None of the three gave very clear 
answers to the question of ethics 
but what they believe can be in- 
ferred from their remarks. Ben 
was somewhat vague in stating his 
ideas: "It's not based on reason- 
ing, it's based on desire. You can't 
have reason enter into sex drive. 
In my case I knew I was homo- 
sexual way before I ever had an 
experience. . . . One doesn't pick 
consciously an object, one finds 
one's self, one discovers one's self

desiring an object." He did, how- 
ever, state a view that was propos- 
ed by Dr. Albert Ellis in an as- 
sembly last year, that anything 
which gives pleasure and does not 
cause harm is acceptable behavior. 

Chuck was more explicit in his 
views but they still proved to be 
very subjective. He says: "I am 
an ex-seminary student ... I am 
now attached to a church and 
more than moderately active and 
have no normal qualms about 
homosexuality as such. The only 
thing that I feel would be wrong 
for me would be to be promiscuous 
. . . I do consider a loving act 
a loving act. The only code of 
ethics, as you can say the basis of 
my code of ethics would be to try 
to determine under any given 
circumstance what is the most lov- 
ing act I can perform. . . . There 
has to be an involvement, even 
just at that moment, there has to 
be something more than Just a 
sexual release." 

Roger was more antagonistic in 
his response: "You don't adopt 
for yourself someone- else's ethic 
and then apply yourself to its con- 
fines if it's a very painful exper- 
ience for you to do so. And I 
should say that most homosexuals 
feel that heterosexual morality as 
codified is simply not possible. 
Certainly it's undesirable and 
therefore it should be ignored and 
is ignored. And the law books out 
the window, it simply doesn't ap- 
ply to people who are not hetero- 
sexual. . . . Who's to say that the 
sex act is for the purpose of pro- 
creating? Who's to make that de- 
cision? ... Is there anything 
wrong with having sex when it's 
not for procreative purposes?" 

While it is hard for anyone to 
give an account of why they be- 
have as they do, the above answers 
can only be seen as unsatisfactory 
to explain why a man is a homo- 
sexual when it isolates him from 
the large majority of society and 
causes him a great deal of trouble. 
One possible answer which the 
three men would probably deny 
was suggested indirectly by Chuck. 
He stated that he was still attract- 
ed to females at Umes and when 
asked how he could maintain a 
happy homosexual marriage under 
that condition he said: "I don't 
think it would be much different 
than a person who is happily mar- 
ried to a woman who may have 
been second choice (i.e. second to 
another woman) He settled for 
someone that was a good compan- 
ion and satisfied him sexually and 
made a happy life out of it. You 
can't have everything so you settle 
for what works."

Buildings adopted to needs 



from pc„ 5 

the system was modernized to In- 
clude two oil-fired burners and a 
central steam plant which services 
aU buildings north of Chew Street 
with the exception of the Student 
Union. East Hall's dated fireplaces 
are now filled in with brick, but 
the underground pipes are still 
wood-encased and hopefully will 
soon be replaced. 
Old Commons as a Dining Hall 

The Old Commons was built in 
1913 as the College's dining hall 
and kitchen. It was constructed 
with a fancy porch which has since 
been removed. In 1943 two new 
dining wings were added, which 
now house classrooms and the art 
department. In 1963 the entire 
building was remodeled to accom- 
modate classrooms, a large lecture 
room, and the art department. 
Brown Hall's History Marked by 
Prep School and Coeds 

Brown Hall, the oldest of the 
girls' dorms, was constructed in 
1913. Called West Hall until the 
1960's, Brown Hall was built as 
the Allentown Preparatory School 
for Boys, completely separated 
from Muhlenberg CoUege. The 
present soccer field was the boys' 
athletic field. Brown housed a 
chemistry lab, kitchen, chapel, 
gymnasium, classrooms, and bed- 



rooms for the boarders. The class- 
rooms, bedrooms, and gymnasium 
are used today by the coeds as 
living quarters and girls' gym. 

In 1956, when Muhlenberg be- 
came coed, Brown was altered and 
added to in order to make it a 
women's dorm. In 1963 additional 
renovations were made on first 
floor to accommodate 25 more 
girls. 

Bernheim — 
Former Treasurer's Home 

Bernheim House was built in 
1916 as the treasurer's house and 
named after the College's treasurer 
at that time. Since then it has 
been used as the dean's house and 
as an honorary junior girls' dorm 
and is today the residence hall for 
arbitrarily selected senior and 
junior women. 

In 1924 the science building was 
built and, except for several im- 
provements, looks basically the 
same today as it did when it was 
first constructed. 

Library Built In 1926 

By 1926 a new library to replace 
the one in Ettinger was badly 
needed. It was built to include 
stacks, classrooms, a lecture room, 
exhibition halls, recitation rooms, 
storage rooms, and a board meet- 
ing-room. Today, most of the 
original rooms are used as study 



rooms. The library was first used 
exclusively as a library in 1965. 
In the last few years the library 
has been expanded and improved 
upon through the addition of new 
desks, lighting, and reading rooms. 

The chapel was built in 1929 as 
it is today. The field house, Me- 
morial Hall, was constructed in 
1951, and Martin Luther, freshman 
boys' dorm, four years later. The 
Student Health Center was built 
in 1957; its infirmary was added 
in 1966. 

Two Girls' Dorms Contributed 
By Mr. Prosser 

Walz Hall, the second oldest 
girls' dorm, was originally called 
Prosser Hall. Sponsored by Harri- 
son Prosser, its name was changed 
to Walz, in honor of his wife's 
maiden name, with the construc- 
tion of the new Prosser Hall in 
1965. 

The J. Conrad Seeger's Union 
replaced the Old Commons as the 
student dining area in 1961. It 
also has recreational facilities, the 
publications rooms, radio studio, 
dark room, T.V. room, Book Store, 
Snack Bar, meeting rooms, lounge, 
and music room. 

Benfer Hall, the newest upper 
classmen's dormitory, was the final 
building constructed, in 1965. 



Increasing cost causes hike in tuition 



function with operating expenses 
as low as possible, consistent 
with a program of quality educa- 
tion, so that we may provide the 
best possible education. . . ." 

Clair Fetterhoff, treasurer of 
Muhlenberg College, says that in- 
creases in charges are only insti- 
tuted when they are necessary. 
He adds that the cost of attending 
Muhlenberg is "in line with col- 
leges of similar stature," mention- 
ing Lehigh University, Franklin 
and Marshall College, Lafayette 
College, and Moravian College as 
such schools. Before the 1969-70 
increase, Muhlenberg was below 
these colleges in cost. 

The College has a long-range 
plan that was drawn up last 
winter as a tentative outline for 
the next ten years. The current 
raise in room and board and tui- 
tion is a part of that plan. It Is 
hoped that the $1950-a-year tui- 
tion charge beginning in 1969-70 
will not have to be raised for the 
following year, but it is difficult 
to plan that far ahead with ac- 
curacy. 

Muhlenberg College's cost will 



continue to rise, and the student 
and his parents must accept this 
fact. It seems likely that the rise 
in cost will alternate between 
room and board and tuition as it 
has in the past. The economic 
situation existing at present seems 
to be one in which the cost of 
living will continue to rise. With 
this rise, the cost of attending col- 
lege will rise in turn. 

The only institutions of higher 
learning that have been able to 
avoid raising charges to the stu- 
dent are those of the state. As 



the cost of attending a private in- 
stitution becomes higher and high- 
er, state schools have risen little 
in cost due to the fact that they 
are state, instead of privately, 
supported. For this reason, the 
student comparing the relative 
merits of each type of institution 
will have to decide whether the 
higher cost of education at a

Moravian puts end to season 



Moravian was soon perched at the 
Berg four yard line. But here the 
line threw up a solid wall, stop- 
ping Gratz twice and forcing Dietz 
to fumble on fourth down. 

The Mules finally got rolling on 
carries by Gordy Bennett and 
Henry, but the threat was broken 
on a crucial pass play where the 
officials missed an obvious defens- 
ive interference infraction. The 
pass fell incomplete, and a vehe- 
ment protest cost Berg another 15 
yards, forcing a punt. This was of 
course blocked, and guard Jeff 
Wilson picked up the ball for an 
easy touchdown to make it 19-0. 

Three passes by freshman Bill 
Evans somehow ignited the Mules, 
aided by several key gains by the 
deposed Henry. Evans lofted a 
perfect touchdown pass to closely 
covered Mark Hastle, and Henry 
came on to throw a few excellent 
fakes before pitching to Randy 
Uhrich for two points. 

Evans was then injured on the 
kick-off, and Henry combined with 
freshman Ted Dick for short gains. 



Several passes, one a potential 
touchdown, were thrown at Has tie, 
who consistently dropped them. 
The drive died, and the Grey- 
hounds gleefully ran out the clock 
and the season.

Dunk, stall gone, 
controversy rages 



by Larry 

Now that basketball season Is 
officially upon us, it is time to take 
out a minute and see what changes 
the egg heads have imposed on 
this once noble and simple pastime. 

First of all, the official document 
of the American coaches rules 
committee of the NCAA states in 
its preface that no new changes 
will significantly affect the play in 
the 1967-68 season. This is not 
entirely true. 

First there is the highly publi- 
cized (weekly April 6, 1967) legal 
change concerning the dunk, which 
was voted into law at the tail end 
of last year's season. What this 
measure does in effect is prevent 
any player from coming in contact 
with both the ball and the basket 
simultaneously. This seemed to 
be aimed at restoring the action 
to basketball by depriving the big 
man of his most potent weapon. 
But what this actually does is take 
away a spectacular play from the 
leapers among the middle sized 
men, and in the end hurts the 
talented giants, who can get up 
very high over the basket and 
shove the ball through without 
touching the rim, very little, 
stall ball stopped 

Another lesser known and more 
recently enacted rule is the one 
which concerns "stall ball." It has 
been customary in recent years for 
a team that has a lead in the late 
stages of the game to go Into a 
"freeze," that is they hold the ball 
some distance away from the bas- 



Wellikson 

ket waiting for the losing defense 
to come and get them. This not 
only wasted time but, of course, 
slowed down the action to almost 
a standstill. This method of stall- 
ing has also been used effectively 
by undermanned teams against 
overwhelmingly favored opposi- 
tion, as in the case last year of 
South Carolina, who extended the 
powerful UCLA national cham- 
pions into overtime by keeping 
the score in the thirties. Penn used 
the same tactics against favored 
Princeton later in the season. 
Rule ends freeze 
What this new rule proposes is 
to establish an imaginary boundary 
twenty feet in front of the basket 
and extending parallel to the sides 
creating a box like structure. 
Players are then limited as to the 
length of time they may stall by 
remaining outside of this boundary 
and in possession of the ball. This 
brings the action in towards the 
basket and makes the "freeze" al- 
most impossible in such a confined 
area. 

So these mighty rule makers 
have tried to make the game more 
palatable to their audience but 
they may have sacrificed the trees 
to save the forest. Basketball was 
made to be played, not talked 
about. And with all the discussion 
raging over these two "insignifi- 
cant" changes, even before the first 
whistle has been blown, it seems as 
if these innovations will be short 
lived.

MUHLCNIERG WEEKLY 



Thursday, November 30, 1967 



Sport side 



by Larry Welllkson 



A little bit of Muhlenberg his- I 
tory walked off the field Saturday 
in the waning moments of a most 
discouraging loss to an ailing 
Moravian football team. A mud 
covered number 14 stepped out of [ 
the lineup and left the trail of his , 
remarkable career behind him. 

In Henry's four years at Berg, 
it seems as though he led not only 
the team but the entire MAC in 
almost every offensive category 
from rushing to passing at one 
time or another. In addition, this 
fine athlete has shown his amazing 
versatility by taking over on de- 
fense and doing a superlative job 
there, too. In his final game, Henry 
showed even another facet of his 
great potential by playing the 
flanker position. 

Henry hams up 
Although Henry has hung up his 
mud-soaked jersey and handed it 
to Trainer Kichline for the last 
time as of Saturday, Muhlenberg 
fans can take heart in the short 
glimpse into the future of Muhlen- 
berg football that they witnessed 
in the dying moments of a dead 
season. When Henry the quarter- 
back became Henry, the flanker, 
Bill Evans the freshman became 
Bill Evans, the man. 

Evans, a freshman from nearby 
Emmaus, is known to have a can- 
non for an arm. Although this 
misdirected potential led to inter- 
ceptions in his two previous ap- 
pearances, on Saturday Evans was 
in full control. Holding his posi- 
tion in a well-protected pocket, 
Evans unloaded a perfect pass to 
speedy Mark Hastie in the end- 
zone and appeared to give Muh- 
lenberg the passing threat that 
they have not had since Henry 
threw his way to the MAC passing 
title two years ago. 

With the score now 19-8 and but 
minutes remaining, the mandatory 
onsides kick was tried, and Berg 
sustained the kind of double loss 
that has characterized this year's 
Not only did they not 



recover the ball, they also man- 
aged to pull one of the most classic 
coaching blunders possible. Evans, 
who throughout the season has 
been used on the bomb squads, but 
who now was running the team, 
was allowed to stay on the kickoff 
squad. It was just a crash and a 
thud later that the smoke cleared, 
only to find Moravian with the 
ball and Muhlenberg with one 
very hobbled passer. 

Berg bumbling baffling 

The team was not sharp, 
they were not up; they were 
not psyched; and many times they 
were not a team. The season was 
marked by two men in motion on 
one play, by 'running backwards 
on fourth and one plays from their 
own 35, by fumbled snaps on punts 
from the end-zone, by dropping 
passes in the end-zone, and finally 
by injured players on plays they 
should not have been in on in the 
first place. 

Though the returning team next 
year will be one of the most tal- 
ented in years, the loss of this 
year's senior class will be felt. 
Perhaps with the graduation of pur 
individually talented seniors and 
with the mellowing of our poten- 
tially fine coaching staff, Muhlen- 
berg supporters can look forward 
to the future with the expectation 
that winning football games will 
return to the College. Perhaps 
with the departure of these fix- 
tures, Berg's usual conglomeration 
of individual talents can be weld- 
ed into a winning team. Let's hope 
so.

Hounds mar season finale | 

by Pete Helwig 

"A good, quick defensive back" said the scouting reports on Movarian sophomore Hugh 
Gratz. And the fleet safety did do a fine job in stifling the Mules' anemic passing attack, 
including an interception deep in his own territory in the second quarter. But then running 
back Bob Smith was sidelined wtih an injury, and young Gratz was tapped to go both ways 



in the great game of games, the 
battle of archrlvals, "begun In 
1900," and hotly pursued through 
all of IS games since that time. 
And as the Mules limped into the 
dressing room at the end of the 
half, someone mentioned that 
Gratz had rushed for 111 yards In 
30 minutes. After witnessing the 
carnage, nobody doubted. 



In some ways it was just like 
the good old days, as Muhlenberg 
was really out of the game after 
Moravian's second touchdown mid- 
way through the third period: And 
Ron Henry's swan song was some- 
how reminiscent of those eight 
long afternoons in 1966; some of 
his passes were off target, many 
more were dropped by his receiv- 
ers, and two were consumed by 
grateful defenders. 

The Mules suffered their third 
blocked punt of the year, which 
followed one of the personal fouls 
which they like to commit once a 
game is out of reach. And just 
when Berg might have had some- 
thing going with Bill Evans at 
quarterback and Henry at flanker, 
the coaching staff insured the tra- 
ditional defeat-clinching injury by 
playing Evans on the kick-off 
squad, where he was pummelled 
out of the game. 

And yet, despite all the errors 
and despite the repeat of last year's 
pathetic 2-5-1 slate, it wasn't hard 
to realize that this team was in- 
finitely superior to anything Muh- 
lenberg has fielded in the last five 
years. The Mules were in every 
game to the finish, and week after 
week came back from heartbreak- 
ing defeats to play enthusiastic, 
exciting, and sometimes good 
football. The mere fact that 
they didn't finish with any- 
thing approaching the 6-2 they 



could have had also says some- 
thing about this team, but they 
nevertheless have a good deal to 
be proud of in Npvember, 1967. 
Field goal 

The Moravian game was often 
exemplary, as poor execution and 
some glaring strategic errors nuli- 
fled several positive achievements. 
The Mules profited from an early 
exchange of punts, and Henry and 
a resurgent Tom Saeger moved 
from their own 42 to the 20 yard 
line of the opponents. But then 
the drive stalled, and the incred- 
ible move which followed allowed 
the Greyhounds to seize the of- 
fensive and go on to dominate the 
scoring. Lee Seras was called on to 
attempt a ridiculous 33-yard field 
goal, but the ball was never set 
and Moravian took over at the 20. 

Seconds later Gratz burst 
through the Berg defense and ate 
up about 70 yards until he was 



caught from behind by Bob Loeffler 
at the 12. Gratz then cracked the 
line for seven, took a pitch for a 
first down, and finally scored from 
the one. Norm Linker's kick made 
it "7-0. 

The Mules' more intricate of- 
fense floundered in the mud during 
the rest of the half, while Mora- 
vian's hard-nosed running game 
was effectively contained by an 
inspired Berg defense. 

Led by Jim Heidecker and Paul 
Vickner, the Mule Une again seem- 
ed impenetrable in the third quar- 
ter. But Muhlenberg failed to cov- 
er well on a punt, giving Moravian 
passing quarterback Jim Dietz 
good enough field position to hit 
Martinelli on the first play from 
scrimmage for a score.

Questions punctuate preseason basketball talk 

r 




by Randy Appel 

The basketbaU team is typical of 
Muhlenberg's athletic program: 
it can be a good team If . . . 

The cagers are a question mark 
and will remain a question mark 
through its first few games, basic- 
ally because of its untried and un- 
proven personnel. Muhlenberg 
lost two key starters to graduation 
in Bill Dunkel and Carl Buchholz, 
and Coach Ken Moyer is forced to 
put a young squad on the court. 



Coach Moyer called the pre- 
Thanksgiving scrimmage against 
Bloomsburg a "good, aggressive 
effort" in a losing cause. Muhlen- 
berg jumped into a quick lead in 
the first half but appeared tired 
and lost their poise in the second. 
Working out of a fast break of- 
fense, which Muhlenberg is going 
to rely heavily upon due to • 
height disadvantage, the 
shot well and were very 
sive on defense. 



A large responsibility in the 
team's success falls on the should- 
ers of a freshman, 6'5" Bob Mc- 
Clure, a three-year let term an in 
high school and an honorable men- 
tion in last year's all-state ballot- 
ing. "McClure, as well as a couple 
of other players," commented 
Moyer. "at times appear a little 
lackadaisical and must hustle a 
little more." 

Ned Rahn, Mickey Miller, and 
Tom Barlow are aU being 



ed upon to bear the brunt of the 
scoring responsibility. Rahn, a 
sophomore, shot very well against 
Bloomsburg. "Give him fifteen 
feet," says Moyer, "and he'll hit 
every time. His injury for eight 
games last year really hurt us." 
Rahn will team with junior Mike 
Mathey at the guards. Mathey 
was very aggressive defensively 
against Bloomsburg and will be a 
key to the fast break offense. 



Miller, a sophomore, and i 
Barlow wiU probably start at the 
forward positions. Miller, accord- 
ing to Moyer, played his best ever 
against Bloomsburg. Barlow is a 
fine shot and is aiming for the 1000 
point mark as a collegian. 

It could be a good year for 
Muhlenberg basketball. If the fast 
break improves and If McClure 
can provide Muhlenberg with the 
necessary board control.

Poll reveals 85% 
defy honor codes 

by Peggy Cooper 

Recently a study of cheating among Chicago area college 
students was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Garfield, assistant 
professor of psychology at Lake Forest College. The survey 
indicated that 50/< of the students interviewed cheated when 
given the opportunity. In those 



colleges where students were 
working under an honor code sys- 
tem 40% of the students admitted 
to having cheated on exams while 
85% admitted to having broken 
the honor code at least once. 

In the face of this evidence, the 
success and usefulness of any 
honor code is questioned. Here at 
Muhlenberg during the current 
semester no cases of violations of 
the honor code have come before 
the Student Court. 

In recent years however, as 
many as 12 cases in one semester 
have been presented. According 
to Margaret Gatter, senior justice, 
this figure is confusing. "It must 
be remembered that cases which 
actually go through Student Court 
judicial proceedings are major vio- 
lations of the honor system. 

"In the case of small offenses 
most Individual professors use 
their own discretion in punishment 
of violators. During Anal exams 
and reading week cases also be- 
come more prevalent." 



The success of the code cannot 
be measured by the number of 
cases brought before the court, 
however. At Muhlenberg most 
students feel the honor code is 
highly workable, giving the stu- 
dent the mature responsibility to 
decide for himself the question of 
honesty. 

Not like high school 
One freshman stated, "It's not 
like high school at aU. Here the 
decision is an individual one." In 
general, the professors regard the 
honor code in the same manner 
and feel it is successful. Most will 
leave the room during an exam 
reminding the students that they 
are working under the honor code. 
The freedom and responsibility 
which this trust entails often car- 
ries with it its own advantages. 
As one coed remarked, "You can 
do so much better on an exam 
when you don't have the professor 
breathing down your neck." 

Violations of the honor code are 
not restricted to cheating on exams

New York couple to enact 
original plays in assembly 



MCA and Student Council will 
present Norman and Sandra Diet* 
at Random, "a unique hour of 
theatre for two people," tomorrow 
at 10 a.m. in the Science Audi- 
torium. 

In an hour-long program, sub- 
titled "Fables and Vaudevilles and 
Plays," the New York couple will 
enact a "not-altogether random 
assortment of improbable plays 
about people and things." 

Norman and Sandra Dietz are 
becoming increasingly well-known 
for a number of roles. Among 
them are a hapless suburban Adam 
and Eve in a sketch called The 
Apple Bit and a frantic druggist 
and customer in a search for self- 
confidence in Le Drugstore. 

There is also the little girl who 
takes a most unusual trip in Tilly 



Tutwellert Silly Trip to tl 

and the boy with too much eye- 
sight in I Used to See My Sister. 

Since the Dietzes play their own 
original material, new pieces re- 
place old ones as Norman finishes 
writing them. They seldom use 
scenery, costumes or props. 

The pair left careers in televi- 
sion and advertising in 1960, and 
formed then- own company in 1962. 

A collection of their material, 
Fables and Vaudevilles and Plays, 
is available from John Knox Press, 
Richmond. Virginia. 



Picture stolen from IBM show: 
second art theft on campus 

Ursine Park by Stuart Davis became the second object of stolen art on the Muhlenberg 
campus within one month. The Davis painting was hanging in the IBM Touring Exhibi- 
tion which is currently on display in the Union. Union director David Seamans believes 
the 1942 framed oil painting was taken sometime Sunday, December 3. 

Primarily done in red, gree n and white oils, the missing p ainting is 27 inches high and 
46 inches wide. The work is i 



framed and marked with a metal 
plate denoting the title of the 
work and the artist, as well as a 
statement that the work is part of 
the IBM collection. 

Seamans contacted the IBM 
company Monday to report the 
theft and was informed by an un- 
derstandably disturbed employee 
that the Davis painting is one of 
the more expensive works in the 
"American Painting of the '30's 
and '40's" show. The value of the 
work, which was not revealed by 
IBM, has also increased since the 
artist died only three years ago. 
Seamans was also informed that 
this is the first incident of theft 
which has ever occured in any of 



the IBM tours. Fortunately. IBM 
insurance will cover this incident. 

The first piece of stolen art was 
an $800 painting taken from the 
last Union exhibit by Greek artist 
Spyros Sokaris. The painting, one 
of the artist's famous oil paintings 
in blue, was entitled Horos and 
pictured three dancing figures. 
Reported missing November 14, 
the painting has never been re- 
covered. Both the police and the 
College's insurance company have 
done investigating but no word 
has been received by Seamans 
concerning their findings. 

According to the Union direc- 
tor, campus officials do not be- 
ve that the stealing is the work 



of Muhlenberg students. Since 
both stolen paintings have been 
the more expensive ones in the 
show, it is felt that perhaps some- 
one with knowledge of art is tak- 
ing the paintings. However, the 
recent Davis work was hanging at 
the end of the exhibit hallway and 
nearest the door so that conven- 
ience of exit might have served as 
the basis for taking that particular 
painting from the collection. 

Campus security guards have 
been contacted and none have re- 
ported witnessing anyone leaving 
the Union with the works. Un- 
fortunately, no one has witnessed 
any such activity and the time of 
theft in both cases cannot be set. 




WANTED — No questions will be asked if the above work. Ursine Park, is returned to Its place

dent, faculty and student body in 
permitting students to invite 
speakers to the campus. 

The statement reaffirms the col- 
lege's present policy. It was 
recommended unanimously by a 
seven-member committee appoint- 
ed by the Board's chairman. The 
complete statement follows: 

"Since free Inquiry and free 
discussion are essential to a stu- 
dent's educational development, a 
recognized student organization 
may invite any speaker to speak 
on campus. Before an invitation 
is extended, the adviser(s) of the 
respective organization must be 
consulted. However, the advls- 
er(s) shall not have the power of 
veto over the invitation. 

"Sponsorship of guest speakers 
does not imply approval or en- 
dorsement by the College of the 
views expressed by the speaker. 

"It should be understood that, as 
is the case with all policies in 
effect at Muhlenberg College, this 
policy is operative within the con- 
text of the ultimate administrative 



responsibility which rests with its 
President." 

A 1200- word introduction pre- 
ceded the three-paragraph policy 
statement. It was this statement 
on which the committee based its 
recommendation to continue to 
give students the right to invite 
speakers to the campus. 

The introduction referred to the 
recent appearance at Muhlenberg 
of militant playwright and poet 
LeRoi Jones. After acknowledg- 
ing that the racial issue is one of 
the most critical in the nation, the 
statement declared: 

"To bring a radical exponent of 
'black power' to the campus to ex- 
pose his views was a proper and 
potentially useful thing to do. 
Such an invitation in no way 
espouses the point of view ex- 
pressed or the language used."

plored" the use of Jones' "vulgar 
language" it called it a "relatively 
trivial factor" when "weighed

Parapsychology, the study of ex- 
trasensory perception (ESP) in the 
human personality, was the subject 
of last Friday's assembly. Hans 
Holzer, director of the New York 
Committee for the Investigation of 
Paranormal Occurrences, spoke 
to an attentive full house in the 
Garden Room. 

Although some believe parapsy- 
chology is at best a borderline 
science, Holzer stressed that it has 
become more and more recognized 
in recent years. If it is valid, our 
entire philosophical system will 
require a re-evaluation because 
the new science maintains that 
man is more than flesh and 
blood; he has a non-physical com- 
ponent. According to Holzer, it is 
these implications of parapsychol- 
ogy that some people fear. 

He stated that there is actually 
no such thing as the supernatural. 
All people have the potential to 
experience the manifestations of 
parapsychology. 

"Ghosts" was described as a 
confusing concept. Usually occur- 
ring after tragic death and sud- 
den death, they are surviving 
emotional memories of a person 
lost between life and death. 

A large part of the assembly was 
devoted to slides. For his studies, 
Holzer took thousands of pictures 
of suspected parapsychological oc- 
currences. Every area involved 
was photographed from every 
angle. Great care was taken to 
avoid reflections and to insure the 
correct operation of the camera 



and the clarity of the high-speed 

film. ' 

A small percentage of the photo- 
graphs revealed ghosts. One wom- 
an perceived (by ESP) a dog that 
had been involved in the tragic 
death of her son. Often "selective 
reflections" were observed on sur- 
faces that were ordinarily non-re- 
flecting. 

Ghosts were seen in the area of 
the historic tragedy at Mialing, 
where a suicide occurred or a 
murder was committed. Parapsy- 
chological disturbances still appear 
in a Los Angeles home, the scene 
of a fatal fight. Wild party noises 
are heard by the residents of the 
house as well as by the neighbors. 

In Winchester Cathedral, where 
the execution of monks was order- 
ed many years ago by Henry 
VIII, three hooded figures were 
recorded on film. The figures are 
loo short for present day men, so 
they must be an impression from 
the past before the floor of the 
chaped at the monastery was 
raised. 

At a house in Stanford Hill, 
Connecticut, Holzer himself heard 
footsteps and saw a white flash 
which threw a shadow behind him. 
He ruled out the possibility of the 
headlights of a passing car, since 
no road was visible from the win- 
dow. 

In another case Holzer explain- 
ed that a faithful family maidser- 
vant at Ross House in Ireland had 
no place to go when she died, so 
she remained to haunt the house

at Placement Office 



Thomas Rogers, a junior English 
major, recently received notice 
that his poem "Scorched Life" has 
been chosen from 30 thousand 
manuscripts to be published in the 
spring edition of the College Stu- 
dents' Poetry Anthology. 

Published by the National 
Poetry Press, the anthology is now 
entering its twenty-fifth year of 
printing students' poems. 

A board of judges selected the 
poems submitted by students at- 
tending either junior or senior 
college. The rules state that any 
form or theme is allowed. 

Rogers observed, "I was happy 
and surprised when I received my 
acceptance letter from the editor 



of the anthology. This seems like 
a step in the right direction since 
I hope to get my master's in cre- 
ative writing." 
Rogers' poem is printed below:

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Russian expedition 
discussed by Secor 



Guest speaker ai the Russian 
Club meeting last Thursday eve- 
ning was Dean Philip Secor, who 
spent a month in Russia during the 
summer of 1965 as part of a cul- 
tural exchange group. Secor took 
over the meeting and conducted 
an informal two-hour lecture, 
centered around his enormous col- 
lection of slides taken during the 
trip. 

The group was somewhat sur- 
prised to learn of the freedom of 
travel enjoyed by Secor within the 
cities of Moscow and Leningrad. 
He told of frequent unsupervised 
excursions around these cities, one 
of which resulted in his arrest for 
photographing unrestored bomb- 
damaged buildings from World 
War II. 

Impostor 

Assuming the title of "whatever 
was hot that day," Secor was able 
to speak informally with many 
professional Russians not normally 
met by the American tourist. 
By donning the robes of a 
lawyer for a day he managed to 
confer with the director of a court 
and obtain a great deal of infor- 
mation on Russian jurisprudence. 
Although political crimes are not 
tolerated by the courts, those of 
non-political origin are treated 
very compassionately. 

Secor also noted that the Soviet 
Union seems at age 50 to be taking 
a more realistic attitude toward its 
own history than ever before. 
Even the effects of post-war 
destalinization seem to be re- 
lenting, as Stalin has been re- 
buried without ceremony outride 
the tomb of Lenin. The figure of 
the latter, however, is omnipresent 
in the Moscow streets and likewise 
along the unpaved country roads. 

Tracing a few aspects of the 
history of the Soviet Union briefly, 



Secor noted the tremendous 
achievement of Lenin and the suc- 
cess of many of his programs. He 
cited the great success of the 
Soviets' campaign against religion, 
the main weapon of which was 
the abolishment of Sunday as a 
national holiday from work. 
Urban life 
Most interesting was the dean's 
description of life in the cities. 
Slides showed colorful, gay scenes 
in Red Square and even inside the

Dean Philip Secor 

Kremlin, quite different from the 
bleak, drab newsreel pictures by 
which we know these places. He 
was particularly appreciative of 
the public transportation systems 
of Moscow and Leningrad, which 
include decorative subway stations 
and underground pedestrian walks. 

Discussions with people on the 
street were often fruitful, particu- 
larly on one occasion when Secor 
was introduced to a woman who 
had known Stalin. In talking to 
several Russian students he was a 
bit surprised to find that many 
were often openly critical of their 
government and was even ad- 
monished by one not to believe 
most of what he read in Pravda. 



Godot deemed memorable; 
performers display versatility 



by Tom Rogers 

Always stark and usually inap- 
propriate, the Science Auditorium 
was, last Thursday, Friday, and 
Saturday evenings, extremely ap- 
propriate for MET's admirable and 
memorable production of Samuel 
Beckett's Waiting for Godot. Beck- 
ett says, "The best word about my 
play is 'perhaps,' " but there can be 
no "perhaps" about the fact that 
Waiting for Godot is an extremely 
well - constructed play of the 
"theatre of the absurd" and that 
MET's presentation of Godot was 
professionally and dramatically 
effective. 

MET's presentation of this emo- 
tionally and intellectually complex 
work communicated the feeling of 
tension that is so deeply inherent 
in Waiting for Godot. As Mark 
Schannon, the director, said, "At 
least part of its greatness comes 
from the variety of plausible 
motifs and themes available to the 
audience. Godot may possibly be 
God, but he may also be the much- 
sought-after fulfillment of man's 
dreams." 

The audience, unable to deter- 
mine the exact identity of Godot 
and unable to determine whether 
the characters are tragic, comic, 
disgusting, humorous, pitiable, or 
plainly absurd, experiences a sense 
of tension faintly resembling the 
tension experienced by the charac- 
ters themselves. 

Vladimir and Estragon are the 
characters, incongruous in nature, 
who perform the act of waiting 
for Godot with religious duty. The 
more emotional Estragon, as por- 
trayed by John Tomasi, and the 
more pragmatic Vladimir, as por- 
trayed by Don Peck, came to life 
as two complementary and yet 
uniquely different characters. 

Peck and Tomasi proved them- 
selves to be actors of superior 
ability. Peck demonstrated his 
ability to quickly and artfully 
change his mood — from gay to 
painful, or from that of a pro tec- 



Mortimer personalizes history 
through descriptive approach 



by Peter Helwlg 

Ritual often has a surprisingly 
important role in a life punctuated 
by the frequent rekindling of the 
ceremonial cigarette. The rite is 
activated the moment Joanne Staf- 
ford Mortimer cruises into a 
freshman History of Civ class 
trailed by a large entourage of 
patronage-seekers. Loathe to ex- 
tinguish the last broadleaf pacifier, 
she stalls while an ingratiating 
male from the front row removes 
a portable lectern from her desk. 
Extemporaneous dialogues with 
anyone on anything animate the 
pre-class scene as she assumes her 
characteristic perch on the front 
corner (stage left) of the now- 
vacant desk. 

Once in position, Dr. Mortimer's 
delivery is a little less structured; 
communication is the object, and 
her multi-media presentation is an 
enormous success. Tossing large 
general concepts out to the throng, 
she drives them home with sweep- 
ing hand motions which add a 
corpulent largesse to her person- 
alized history of civilization. 
In large measure 

But the Gospel according to St. 
Mort is not, "in large measure," 
limited to generalities, as previous 
students of her History of Russia 
course (to be offered next year — 
register early) will testify. Not a 



great advocate of artificial labels 
and glib historians, Dr. Mortimer 
does not hesitate to put down 
superficiality where she finds it. 
Favorite targets this year have 
"professional debunkers" 




like Richard Hofstadter, and the 
indomitable Will Durant. 

Muhlenberg's descriptive histor- 
ian feels that most people are 
meeting the questions of the 1960's 
with answers that are rapidly be- 
coming obsolete. She attacks the 

mart on pmf* J 



tive mother to that of an upset 
lover — an ability which the play 
demands. 

Talented comedians 
Tomasi expressed equally well 
the emotions of wide-eyed wonder 
and child-like devilishness or 
pouting. Peck and Tomasi are tal- 
ented comedians as well as serious 
actors, expressing absurd gaiety as 
they played the games of "pass the 
hats" and "tree," and expressing 
deep desperation when they ad- 
mitted, in Act II, that they "can't 
go on." 

Mark Schannon, as Pozzo, and 
Fred Hawkins, as Lucky, also 
proved themselves to be talented 
and adaptable actors. Schannon 
equally well portrayed Pozzo's re- 
pulsive and absurd self-assurance 
and dominance, which could be 
destroyed by the loss of his voice 
"spray," in Act I, and his help- 
lessness, like that of a hurt, yet 
still ferocious animal, in Act II. 
Hawkins captured the crippled, 
animal-like quality of Lucky's 
character; after the first few 
garbled words, he expressed well 



the absurdly extreme passion and 
frustration of Lucky's pathetic at- 
tempt to "think." (Also, judging 
from Hawkins' imaginative design 
for the play program cover, he is 
a talented graphic artist.) 

Kris Martin, whose presentation 
sometimes lacked expression, made 
a very believable "Boy." He did 
well, for his first acting experience. 
Unforgettable! 

The sensitive interpretation of 
this difficult play by the director, 
Schannon, assisted by Walter 
Moriarty, was evident throughout 
the entire production. Others to 
be commended are; Ingrid Biel, 
for well chosen costumes; Rica 
Blausten for expressive makeup; 
Glen Moyer, for a well-designed 
set, including a notable, grotesque- 
ly humorous tree, and Herb Lor- 
entzen for lighting. 

With all facets of the production 
considered, the Muhlenberg Ex- 
perimental Theatre conducted an 
extremely worthwhile experiment, 
perhaps described best by Es- 
tragon's own word, "unforget- 
table."

Comment 



Right reaffirmed . . . 

We can hardly believe that the Board of Trustees that met 
yesterday is the same group of gentlemen that threatened the 
stability of our academic freedom regarding campus speakers. 
The statement produced by the Board at their latest meeting 
has restored any faith in their sensibility which might have 
been lost after the October skirmish. 

By putting our speaker policy in writing, the Board has 
strengthened the already sound method of inviting speakers 
to Muhlenberg, and has erased a few apparent weaknesses 
in the former system. 

To echo President Erling N. Jensen, we are pleased by 
and proud of, and grateful to, the Board of Trustees for 
adopting an honest and progressive speaker policy. 



Japanese student 
utilizes disruptive 



Second time around . . . 

Now that the second painting has been stolen from a 
campus exhibit, we cannot help but wonder how long we 
must wait until adequate facilities for art shows will be 
erected on the campus. It is certainly embarrassing for the 
College to report to such people as the IBM Corporation that 
a valuable piece of art work was stolen from their touring 
collection which is on display at Muhlenberg. It is even more 
embarassing to find out that this is the first time IBM has 
had such an occurrence. 

Furthermore, it is even more disconcerting to witness the 
absurd conditions under which such collections are exhibited. 
There, in probably the most used building on the campus, 
hang the paintings. The Conrad Seegers Union Building is 
open from 7:30 a.m. until as late as 1 a.m. on weekends, open 
to anyone who knows how to open a door. 

Probably the only redeeming quality of the present display 
area in the Union is that it exposes most of the student body 
to the art works since the majority of students must travel 
through the display hallway to receive meals. But for the 
works of art all this exposure is not so good. Students caught 
in a long meal line have been observed leaning against the 
paintings. Curious onlookers have been witnessed touching 
the works, and, as in the case of the large George Washington 
owned by the school, some students even take the liberty to 
write on the paintings. 

Neither David Seamans nor the Union Board is to blame 
for the unfortunate conditions in which we must display art 
exhibits. The fact is that there is absolutely no other place 
on the campus which is able to properly facilitate this type 
of display, so that the art subcommittee of the Union Board 
has been forced through no fault of their own to jeopardize 
every exhibit that comes to Muhlenberg by hanging it in a 
public area without guards or restrictive measures. 

Unfortunately, if this present robbery situation continues 
it will not become very easy for Muhlenberg to procure 
touring exhibits of any worth. But there is no alternative 
campus facility which will insure the safety of exhibits on 
our campus. 

Norman Paige has been forced to sing in the Science Au- 
ditorium. Caprice lounges beside the thermostat. The Ring 
stands a lonely vigil over embracing campus couples. Horos 
and Ursine Park have disappeared. How long will it be until 
we have the fine arts center?

by Dr. Charles B. Fans 

This is the second part of a 
three port article written by 
Muhlcnbero'g Harry C. Trex- 
ler Visitina Scholar. 

Japanese student self-govern- 
ing organizations tend to be run 
by an ideologically motivated 
minority which assumes that its 
election gives it a mandate to 
utilize the association budget and 
influence to promote its poli- 
tical ends. This may give the im- 
pression that Japanese students 
are politically more active and 
alert than American students. I 
do not think this is the case. Only 
a small minority Is active. Except 
for ideology, my impression is that 
Japanese students have made less 
effort to study the problems of the 
world around them either within 
the country or internationally than 
have American students. They are 
less likely than American students 
to participate constructively in 
adult political activity, e.g. through 
party work. 

Demonstrations are a favorite 
activity, however. The Security 
Treaty demonstrations of 1960 are 
the most famous example and gen- 
erated most public support, al- 
though they did not deter the 
Government from the course it 



had set. In those demonstrations 
one girl student lost her life — 
probably trampled by the mob al- 
though the exact circumstances of 
her death are not known since the 
corpse was not noticed until after 
the riot had subsided. 

Anti-American protest 

In 1962 and 1963 demonstrations 
in front of the American Embassy 
in Tokyo were frequent. One of 
the Embassy political officers 
sometimes had to meet with lead- 
ers of such groups several times a 
day. But there were demonstra- 
tions at the Chinese Embassy and 
the Korean Mission also as well 
as in front of the Diet or other 
Japanese Government offices. Stu- 
dents also participated in demon- 
strations against American bases 
or against visits to Japanese ports 
by American nuclear powered 
submarines. 

There was a clearly concerted 
policy to prevent, if possible, any 
appearance by Ambassador 
Reischauer on a Japanese univer- 
sity campus. In fact the threat of 
demonstrations prevented Am- 
bassador Reischauer from ever 
having an opportunity to speak at 
any of Japan's national univer- 
sities. He did speak at a number 
of private universities but on sev- 
eral of these occasions there were 



minority 
protests 

efforts to break up the meeting 
and on others an invitation from 
the university was cancelled be- 
cause of student threats, 

I was also demonstrated against. 
For example, on a visit by invita- 
tion to Iwate University student 
demonstrators first tried to prevent 
my entering the building and then 
tried to break up the meeting. On 
a second visit in that area the 
President and several Deans went 
ten miles to a hot spring resort to 
meet me because they feared stu- 
dent trouble if I even called at the 
President's office. A professor at 
another university at which I 
spoke wrote me later that he had 
been forced to resign his position 
because he had helped to arrange 
the meeting for me. He added 
that at one point there had been 
a student plan to attack me phy- 
sically in the corridor. 

Real causes 

On-campus demonstrations, sit- 
ins and barricades are more fre- 
quent. At least one major univer- 
sity a year is hit by student troub- 
les. The sequence has been so 
regular that there is newspaper 
speculation as to which university 
has been picked as the next target. 
Ostensible reasons are various. 
There are real enough causes for

In need of cheer 



To the Editor: 

It seems to me that the editors 
of this paper were awfully critical 
of the unfortunate football team 
and the fresh young basketball 
learn in their November 30 issue. 
They implied that the basketball 
team was going to have problems 
this year by saying "if" the team 
can improve they "might" win a 
few games. Also they kicked a 
dead horse when they made 
derogatory comments about the 
unsuccessful football season. Un- 
fortunately these confused people 
do not realize that quite a bit of 
the blame for the football season 
falls on the student's and their 
shoulders. A successful team 
needs skill and team spirit. Team 
spirit is greatly affected by the 
amount of people supporting the 
team. It was disgusting to attend 
a home Muhlenberg game this 
year and see that there were al- 
most as many fans from the op- 
posing team there as Muhlenberg 
fans. And the Muhlenberg fans 
that attended cheared [sic] like 
they were in a. library. The 
basketball team has the potential 
of a winning club. It is now up

Pralie of absurd 

To the Editor: 

Waiting for Godot is a play 
whose production can be a terrible, 
tedious boredom at its worst and 
an excellent, entertaining tedium 
at its best. The MET production 
of this past weekend was certain- 
ly one of the latter. 

The acting by the two lead per- 
formers, Don Peck and John 
Tomasi, was most outstanding. 
The performances of the remainder 
of the cast were also most com- 
mendable, especially that of Fred 
Hawkins as Lucky. The excel- 



lency of the actor's performances 
prevented the intentional tedium 
of Becket's play (Let's go." "We 
can't." "Why not?" "We're wait- 
ing for Godot." "Oh," was re- 
peated ad nauseam) from bogging 
down into a slough of boredom. 

The unity of the directing also 
greatly aided the production. 
From details of make-up, lighting, 
and set, to the over-all interpreta- 
tion, the production gained tre- 
mendous impact from the unity of 
Mark Schannon's directoral work. 
Especially worthy of notice was 
Herb Lorentzen's lighting, which 
created an atmosphere of gloom on 
the stage. 

Schannon's decision not to em- 
phasize any particular interpreta- 
tion of the play made the produc- 
tion most worthwhile. By so do- 
ing, Schannon allowed each mem- 
ber of the audience to interpret- 
the play as he saw it. To avoid 
making any interpretation is in- 
deed a difficult task, but Schannon 
and the entire cast succeeded in 
this respect as they did in all 
others. 

The depressing futility of life is 
the greatest impact which the play 
makes. The two tramps who con- 
tinually say "Let's go," but never 
leave, typify the futile atmos- 
phere of the entire play, as well 
as their meek submission to the 
fact that there is "nothing to be 
done." The depressing gloom cre- 
ated by the lighting on the set and 
the make-up added to the general 
impression of this play. 

There is little to be found 
wrong with this past week's pro- 
duction of Godot. Any errors were 
well covered or so small as to be 
unnoticeable, and the general high 
quality of the production makes 
any mention of these picayune. 
The tiack-stage crew certainly de- 
serves its share of the praise, but 
the greatest commendation be- 
longs to the actors who made this 
production the success that it was.

Marine vs PAX 

To the editor: 

I wish I had time to polish this 
so as not to embarrass those pro- 
fessors who devoted so much en- 
ergy towards my education. 
Thanks to Mrs. Fenstermacher's 
efforts in keeping up with my cur- 
rent address, I receive copies of 
the weekly. A few comments- 
First, my congratulations to the 
students for their support of Presi- 
dent Jensen. He has long deserved 
it but seldom received such en- 
couragement in what is so often 
a thankless and always a frustrat- 
ing job. 

So many of the programs now 
in effect (Big Name, Visiting 
Scholar, Affiliate artist, etc.) were 
just beginning or being considered 
during my time at Berg. It seems 
a great deal of effort is being made 
to balance the total educational ex- 
perience. 

On the creation and activities of 
PAX — I wonder what Dr. Kinter 
has to say regarding the use of a 
term so closely associated with him 
for Mr. Lawrence's group? To 
counter what I've read by Mr. 
Lawrence, it seems he has forgot- 
ten to include the responsibility/ 
privilege axiom in his considera- 
tion of a man's relationship with 
his State. I've always believed that 
ours is the best working form of 
government when viewed as to 
liberty for each individual and 
none of the countries visited since 
I left the States have caused me 
to change that opinion. Not total 
freedom for each individual be- 
cause that would be anarchy, but 
representative democrary where-in 
the majority rules Is there a "new 
political science" to complement 
the "New Math" which puts me 
out of date or are these terms still 
in use? 

My point is, the government (the 
people) has established the Selec- 
tive Service System and certain 
obligations for young male citi- 
zens. Now it seems to me that if 
a man elects to benefit from being 
a citizen of the United States, he

MUHLENBERG WEEKLY 



Profs condemn student action 
against interviewers, speakers 



by Walter Grant 

(CPS) — The American Associ- 
ation of University Professors has 
condemned recent student demon- 
strations designed to stop campus 
interviews or to prevent speakers 
invited to the campus from speak- 
ing. 

The AAUP, which has long been 
one of the most liberal organiza- 
tions in the academic community, 
warned that recent protests at 
several campuses across the na- 
tion are destructive to the prin- 
ciples of academic freedom. 

The AAUP position was issued 
in the form of a resolution adopted 
by the AAUP Council, the organi- 
zation's policy-making board, 
which consists of 30 elected re- 
presentatives. 

Restraint ordered 

The resolution says "action by 
individuals or groups to prevent 
speakers invited to the campus 
from speaking, to disrupt the 
operations of the institutions in 
the course of demonstrations, or 
to obstruct and restrain other 
members of the academic com- 
munity and campus visitors by 
physical force is destructive of the 
pursuit of learning and of a free 
society. 

The resolution, through its 
vague wording, refers to faculty 
members as well as students. Fac- 
ulty members have joined students 



NSA attacks 
Hershey order 

The National Student Associa- 
tion has filed suit against General 
Lewis B. Hershey, director of the 
Selective Service. The lawsuit 
was filed in response to Hershey's 
directive to local draft boards to 
induct anti-war student protestors. 

The Campus Americans for 
Democratic Action, the Students 
for a Democratic Society, and the 
University Christian Movement 
joined the NSA in attacking Her- 
shey's decree. NSA President Ed- 
ward Schwartz declared that the 
Hershey's memorandum "suggests 
in illegitimate and unconstitution- 
al use of selective service." 

Yale University President King- 
man Brewster declared that Gen- 
eral Hershey's order was an "ab- 
solutely outrageous usurpation of 
power." Brewster, who opposes 
draft resistance as a political 
tactic, denounced Hershey because 
his action "destroys the whole no- 
tion of military service being a 
privilege and an obligation and 
not a punishment ... I think it 
acts as a real damper on free 
discussion and dissent." 

Hershey, who has been director 
of the Selective Service aparatus 
since its inception in 1940, replied 
that drafting dissenters was not 
punishment but rather privilege 
for those inducted. There are few 
major campuses in the United 
States where General Hershey 
can safely speak. 

The suit that seeks to prevent 
enforcement of Hershey's directive 
was filed in U. S. District Court in 
Washington. Objection to Her- 
shey's decree is based the limit it 
puts on the freedom of speech and 
the General's refusal to make pub- 
lic documents which affect the 
public. 

Presently, the American Civil 
Liberties Union has four suits in 
court challenging the draft re- 
classiAcation of six men of draft 
age who protested U. S. policy In 
Vietnam. 



in several recent protests. 

The AAUP position comes in the 
wake of a series of protests against 
recruiters from the armed services 
and from other organizations con- 
nected with the military. Some of 
the demonstrations have been suc- 
cessful in keeping recruiters from 
conducting interviews or in tem- 
porarily shutting down a building 
where military research is con- 
ducted. 

Robert Van Waes, associate sec- 
retary of the AAUP, said, "We're 
all for dissent. But we think all 
persons, regardless of their beliefs, 
should have the same freedoms. 
Our concern is that the larger 
freedom (freedom of speech) not 
be eroded away by particular 
forms of protest which we think 
may be a challenge to that larger 
freedom." 

Academic freedom 

Van Waes emphasized that the 
AAUP has been promoting greater 
academic freedom for students. 
The organization is one of five be- 
hind a joint statement on the 
rights and freedoms of students. 
This statement endorses such 
rights as a student role in policy- 
making and due process for stu- 
dents in disciplinary cases. 

In endorsing the AAUP stand, 
Schwartz said, "While there are 
some points where we (NSA) 
would support a student strike if 
it was necessary to achieve a tac- 
tical objective for student power 
or educational reform, we can in 
no way support demonstrations 
where the goal is to prevent stu- 
dents from seeing recruiters or to 
expel recruiters from campus be- 
cause of the organization which 
they represent." 

Schwartz explained his view by 
asking, "In what way does the 
left's attempt to rid the university 
of recruiters whom they oppose 
differ from the right's frequent at- 
tempts to ban Communists from 
the campus?" 

He added that there are ways 



of confronting recruiters, even 
sitting down in front of them, 
without blocking the passage of 
students who want to speak with 
them. 

Schwartz said he has proposed 
that "any recruiter coming to 
campus be required to participate 
in an open forum to answer ques- 
tions if students so request" If 
the recruiter refuses to meet this 
requirement, then he should not 
be permitted on the campus, he 
added. 

Recruiters affected 

Schwartz' proposal would seri- 
ously affect military recruiters, 
who generally are not permitted 
to discuss important military poli- 
cies like the Vietnam war. The 
war is the primary concern of the 
student protests. 

Explaining his proposal, 
Schwartz said, "The grounds here 
would effect the recruiter's un- 
willingness to adhere to the stan- 
dards of an academic community 
rather than the nature of the re- 
cruiter's political affiliation." 

The AAUP resolution, adopted 
by the Council during a closed 
meeting in October, did not 
mention any institutions where 
protests have been held or any 
particular organizations, such as 
Students for a Democratic Society, 
which have been sponsoring the 
demonstrations. 



O'Hair, Husted to debate 
taxation, church in forum 




Madalyn Murray O'Hair 

Tonight atheist Madalyn Murray 
O'Hair and Theodore H. Husted, 
Jr., Vice Dean of the Pennsylvania 
Law School, will challenge one 
another in an Open Forum debate 
on "Church and Taxation" at 8 
p.m. in the Garden Room. Dean 
Philip B. Secor will moderate the 
fourth Open Forum program. 

Madalyn Murray O'Hair has re-

the Supreme Court's decision to 
ban Bible reading and prayer re- 
citing in the nation's public

Honor Code workable 



Iram paii I I tive. As one freshman remarked, 

Plagarism, taking longer "The honor code trains the student 
assignment than stated, | not only to make his own decisions, 
but to confront the consequences 
of his decisions." This is an opin- 
ion which Miss Gatter reiterates 
when she says, "The successf ulness 
of the honor code cannot be mea- 
sured in terms of whether a stu- 
dent cheats or not, but in terms 
of the students' thoughts on the 
honor code. It is a question of 
dignity." 



though,

claiming another's work as your 
own on any assignment which 
might affect a grade are also vio- 
lations of the code. 

A majority of the students inter- 
viewed, however, feel reluctant to 
report any violation by another 
student. Few students report 
themselves. Most cases brought 
before the court have been refer- 
red to it by several individuals. 
Few students wish to take on the 
responsibility of turning in another 
student When questioned about 
this, one student answered, "That's 
a hard thing to do, especially if he 
is your friend." Some students said 
they would not report another stu- 
dent Most would go along with 
the sophomore who said, "I think 
I would talk to him about the 
violation first and if he didn't turn 
himself in, I wouldn't either." A 
junior stated, "the consequences 
are too severe. It's better to simply 
warn the student of the possible 
outcome of his action." 

Question of dignity 

A few students feel the honor 
code is impractical, too vague, and 
believe cheating is widespread. 
One upperclassman commented, "I 
wouldn't say the honor code is in- 
effective, but at times I do feel at 
a distinct disadvantage working 
under It. To the honest student the 
code only aids the cheater." 

However, most Muhlenberg stu- 
dents feel the honor code is effec- 



Coffee House 
still in planning 

Muhlenberg's campus coffee 
house still is not open. The reason 
for the continued delay is the need 
for more modifications to the area 
where the student-faculty discus- 
sion and relaxation center will be 
located. 

Rich Bennett, Student Council 
representative to the coffee house 
committee, listed the following 
modifications still needed: repip- 
ing in the heating system; fire- 
proofing of the ceiling; and the 
heightening of doorways and re- 
versing of their hinges. 

The committee is waiting for the 
approval of the campus mainten- 
ance department before these 
modifications can be carried out. 
It is hoped the necessary modifi- 
cations will be approved so the 
coffee house can open soon, possib- 
ly in February.

professors. 

A Massachusetts native, Charles 
S. Amorosino, Jr., will be travel- 
ing between Muhlenberg and Le- 
high next week as part of his pres- 
ent duties with the Peace Corps. 
During the two years of foreign 
work, Amorosino was assigned to 
teach elementary school science. 
He also started coordinating sci- 
ence fairs and research projects 
and conducting seminars for 
Filipino teachers. 

Off the job, Amorosino began a 
rice-farming project and oversaw 
a group of teenage boys and girls 
in community singing and leisure 
activities. His language was Taga- 
log. Overseas travel included 
Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, 
Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, 
and Hawaii. 

Amorosino's campus counter- 
part will be Jeanne Calamari from 
New York City. Miss Calamari's 
Peace Corp assignment was to 
teach at a secondary girls school 
in the Moslem region of Nigeria. 
While in this position, she started 
a school library and directed two 
plays. In the town, Miss Calamari 
worked at a reform home for 
boys, and taught English, French 
and ballroom dancing at a social 
center for young men. While in 
Nigeria she spoke Hausa. 

Many students will recall that 
Director of the Peace Corps Jack 
Vaughn was present for an as-

fascist instincts of those in author- 
ity who persist in seeing world 
Communism as a monolith, and 
suspects that the force of national- 
ism is experiencing a sharp de- 
cline today. 

Get the point? 

While vehemently opposing 
United States' involvement in 
Southeast Asia, Dr. Mortimer sug- 
gests that mere disapproval of the 
Administration's warlike policy is 
insufficient. She favors the ex- 
ploration of any and all possible 
avenues to peace, but doubts that 
a "peace candidate" could con- 
vince the majority of Americans 
that "peace at any price" is essen- 
tial in 1968.

just drop in to grasp a few con- 
cepts. The door is always open. 

Dr. J. Mortimer (not to be con- 
fused with her husband Dr. C.)

tion at Dickinson College, and took 
her M.A. and Ph.D. at the Univer-

MUHLfNIttG WEEKLY

Students, tutors teach, learn 
in Spanish-American project 



What Is the tutorial program? 

It was organized to help the 
Spanish-American children at the 
Fellowship Center at 209 Hamilton 
Street in Allentown. The aim of 
the program is two-fold and It is 
centered around children from the 
kindergarten age to those in the 
fifth grade. On Tuesday or Wed- 
nesday of each week students from 
Muhlenberg take a bus to the Cen- 
ter to tutor and at night there is 
a special study hail for students 
in junior high and high school. 

To make the child feel accepted 
and successful is the most impor- 
tant purpose of the program. He 
has to knoui that he is significant 
and has value as an adult. Sec- 
ondly, the child is encouraged to 
use the English that he already 
knows. It is not the idea to teach 
or present a classroom atmosphere, 
but to establish an informal at- 
mosphere in which the child can 
feel at ease to create and be him- 
self, to express his feelings openly. 

To help him acquire a better 
usage and understanding of the 
English language, the child must 
first feel welcomed. The children 
themselves are naturally amiable 
and will very soon identify them- 
selves with a student, and in this 
way it is easier to establish oral 
communication. It is through this 
developing friendship that the 
tutor can get the child to use his 
vocabulary, help him with word 
pronunciation and sentence struc- 
ture. 



The Spanish-American children 
are energetic and have a natural 
curiosity about life. They have 
active minds but many times have 
not had them channeled toward 
learning to read and to acquire 
knowledge through words and 
books. They have not had to use 
descriptive words for what they 
see. They use sentences like . . . 
"See that thing over there?" 
Therefore, it is important that the 
tutor encourage the child to de- 
scribe pictures or events and to use 



complete sentences. Some children 
have the tendency to use word an- 
swers to questions. This is why 
questions should be asked in such 
a way that the child must verbalize 
in complete sentences. Take, for 
example, a picture of a lady. The 
question asked could be . . . What Is 
she doing? Or If it is a man . . . 
Why do you think he is doing this? 
It is important that the tutor get 
the child to engage in conversation 
and make use of the English lan-

of the country's most knowledge- 
able LSD researchers.

must assume the corresponding ob- 
ligation to obey its laws. In fact, 
by the time a man is of draft age 
he has already built up quite a 
debt to the nation. If you don't 
like the law there are channels 
established thru which to influence 
and, if your opinion is that of the 
majority, change the law. But the 
right to protest doesn't carry a

from his responsibility to fulfill 
his obligations even as he protests. 

PAX appears to be working in 
a responsible manner. They seem 
concerned with violence, or more 
specifically, killing. Are there any 
responsible people left in the States 
who do not realize that one of the 
prices on the War Protest Move- 
ment is the death of American and 
Free World troops in Vietnam? Do 
the members of PAX and the far 
more active groups accept their

responsibility for killing these men 
I must for the deaths of all- who 
fall by my order or supervision? 
I do not question the right of dis- 
sent but I do the depth of analysis 
and the maturity reflected by 
much of what is said, done and 
written by our present dissenters. 

In his article of Nov. 16, Mr. 
Lawrence implies that the Vietnam 
War is an exercise of violence. 
My pocket dictionary says VIO- 
LENCE is the "wild use of force." 
If this definition Is acceded I take 
issue with Mr. Lawrence. The 
practice of the US is to use force 
with great discretion, so much so 
that we have given up most of 
our advantages by delays, i.e., to 
commit only that amount of force 
sufficient to balance that already 
committed by the enemy. 

On what authority other than 
hearsay does PAX base its con- 
clusions about the war out here 
in my corner of the world? Have 
these folks looked into USAID, 
USOM, CORDS? Are they cogniz- 
ant of the roles these organizations 
play in our attempt to "colonize" 
Vietnam? 

Finally, a few opinions and one 
request. I hope someday to see 
an all-volunteer Defense Establish- 



ment. I hope to see an end to 
war, and Mr. Lawrence has not 
one ounce the basis for detesting 
it or recognizing the waste in- 
volved as I. But before this comes 
to pass we will have to see a time 
when all men of influence know 
what is involved in this war and 
the score of lesser armed conflicts 
in the world. And my request — 
can someone send me an example 
of a recent time when Ho Chi 
Minn, the kindly Grandfather to 
the north, or his supporters have 
issued a charge against the US or 
its allies which was true in sub- 
stance and honest in Intent? AU 
the clamor of credibility gap seems 
centered on the wrong party. If 
the rebuttals in fact as I've wit- 
nessed them in the past 20 months 
have not been reported at home 
in a forceful manner, perhaps I 
can undertake a small part of the 
task. 

Mail is always welcome, of any 
type, and I promise a somewhat 
coherent reply, albeit long in com- 
ing. If my last extension is grant- 
ed I'll be here until July.

"and as long as a mother does not 
take the drug during the first 
months of her pregnancy, her 
child is not likely to have any 
serious, drug-induced abnormali- 
ties." 

Not everyone who has taken 
LSD sustains chromosome dam- 
age. "LSD, if taken in small doses, 
about 150 mics, rarely causes 
broken chromosomes," said Dr. 
Egozcue. He said that the number 
of trips a person has taken is 
probably not important; It is the 
size of the dose which determines 
the amount of damage, if any. 
"LSD is not addictive, he added, 
"but it can be habit forming, like 
tobacco." 

Dr. Egozcue, a young man who 
is not afraid to answer truthfully 
some of the questions which 
plague LSD users, is a pioneer in 
the field of relating chromosome 
damage to LSD. 

He is a well known personality 
to Portland's drug-using com- 
munity, both hippie and straight, 
because he has circulated among 
them, taking blood samples out of 
their arms. So far over 80 people 
have volunteered blood. Their 
LSD experiences vary from only 
one trip to more than 100 LSD 
trips. 

"I'm looking for chromosome 
damage," he said, "and LSD does 
cause at least one chromosome, 
Philadelphia one, found in circu- 
lating blood cells to become brok- 
en." (This condition bears some 
resemblance to leukemia but It is 
not leukemia). "As far as I know, 
Philadelphia one breakage will not 
cause any permanent or lasting 
damage." 
Dr. Egozcue comes off as an 
nan. As a medical re- 
he Is convinced his work 
may be a valuable contribution to- 
ward unlocking the "secrets" of 
LSD. He is scrupulously careful 
in his experiments as only a man 
who loves his work can be. 

"I wouldn't take it myself," he 
said of LSD, but he believes the 
dangerous aspect of the drug has 
been greatly inflated by many 
popular periodicals. He said, "No 
one is sure how much damage, if 
any, the drug causes in brain cells 
and nobody really knows, in the 
brain, what is psychological and 
what is physiological." 

He said there could be a re- 
lationship between "bad trips" and 
brain cell damage, but nobody 
really knows. He said in his own 
field, chromosome research, his 
work is still in an infant stage. At 
any time he might discover evi- 
dence that LSD does do permanent 
or serious damage to humans.

MUHLENIERG WEEKLY 





If your major 
is listed here, 
IBM would like 
to talk with you 
December 11th 




Sign up for an interview at your placement office-even if 
you're headed for graduate school or military service. 

Maybe you think you need a technical background to work 
for us. 
Not true. 

Sure we need engineers and scientists. But we also need 
liberal arts and business majors. We'd like to talk with you even 
if you're in something as far afield as Music. Not that we'd 
hire you to analyze Bach fugues. But we might hire you to 
analyze problems as a computer programmer. 

What you can do at IBM 

The point is, our business isn't just selling computers. 
It's solving problems. So if you have a logical mind, we need 
you to help our customers solve problems in such diverse areas 



as government, business, law, education, medicine, science, 
the humanities. 

Whatever your major, you can do a lot of good things at 
IBM. Change the world (maybe). Continue your education 
(certainly, through plans such as our Tuition Refund Program). 
And have a wide choice of places to work (we have over 300 
locations throughout the United States). 

What to do next 

We'll be on c
